Jade Glithero from the UK is a freelance florist who was inspired to write a children’s book by her 3-year-old son, Noah.
She was determined to write something that she and her son could enjoy together. But, like most would-be authors, having the confidence to just sit down and write without any prior experience or knowledge of this industry, didn’t come easily.
When Jade discovered Write Story Books For Children she liked the look and feel of the website. Her instinct told her that this could be the stepping-stone that would enable her to quickly learn the skill of writing, and finally achieve her aspiration of writing a story for her young son.
Very soon after starting the course Jade found the confidence and enthusiasm to write and illustrate her first children’s book, ‘Free as a Flea’.
‘Free as a Flea’ is a delightful story that follows the tremendous adventures of a flea that hops and jumps his way around the world!
To date she has sold over 500 copies of her book, been featured in her local press, attended and spoken at two literary festivals, visited numerous schools, and even gained Royal fans in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!
Most importantly for Jade, she has made hundreds of children (and adults) smile including the most important smile of all, her little boy Noah.
I have now published a second book ‘Tea with a Flea’ and have had requests for a third along with inquiries about illustration and teaching.
I feel ‘alive’ with ambition and friends and family have commented on how happy I seem.
I love my new hobby and thank you dearly for handing me the keys.Jade Glithero
