A message from Gill Jepson

Hi! A couple of days ago, I wrote to the author of a brilliant book; Out of Time. She is getting a new book released in November; you should check it out! Anyway, I read the book and found out that she lived in Cumbria, so I wrote to her, asking her to do a post for me. Here's her reply...

I have always written for my own pleasure and it was only a matter of time before I became a published author. I love children’s fantasy literature and I was inspired by Alan Garner, Susan Cooper, Michael Morpurgo and dare I say it-Enid Blyton. My Out of Time books are centred around Furness Abbey and slip between different time frames-Raven’s Hoard the second novel is out on 1 November and I am very excited to see the response to it. I am passionate about Furness Abbey and the local heritage and want my books to encourage young people to explore their local environment. I visit schools with my books and provide writing workshops for young people, which I enjoy very much. It’s good to have instant feedback on your work-just so that you know you are on the right track with your writing.

So there it is! I am going to be doing book reviews of her books soon, so be sure to keep looking! If you want to buy one of her books, go on 
be sure to post a comment below if you have read one of her books, met her or even just like this post. Cheers!
Thanks Gill,
Happy Reading,
