Authors Biography

Eight year old Amber from Yorkshire wanted to write and illustrate her own book. Her dream has finally come true. During lockdown , Amber used poetry and illustration as a means of expressing how she felt about what was happening, developing poems that capture her life during the first four months of the UK’s Covid -19 Lockdown, alongside illustrations that show a wish for a brighter future. Amber has worked with illustrator Ursula Hurst, creating artwork that looks professional yet maintains the freshness and innocence of Ambers work.
