New to the scene children’s fiction author Miranda Newboult, is set to hit the streets to promote her great new book for 8-12 year olds, ‘Emma’s Stormy Summer’.

A great summer holiday read for any little girl and one which I would thoroughly recommend.

Come along and offer your support to this new voice in children’s fiction and lend some encouragement to  our youngsters to get them reading.

“Dad thinks I’m a nuisance” It may be sunny but Emma’s perfect world seems to be unravelling in front of her.

First her friend Becca started being horrible to EVERYONE and now Daddy is ignoring her and acting weird.

Emma can’t help but worry that it is all her fault and as the storm clouds gather over her Dad she feels more and more guilty and responsible.

If only she could get everything back to normal. This summer she realises that growing up can be a rollercoaster and maybe, just maybe, she should relax and enjoy the ride.

Meet Miranda Newboult

Miranda Newboult grew up in East Sussex and now lives five miles from where she was born.

She spent most of her childhood with her nose in a book but did manage to find time to go to school at Roedean and then do a degree in English and Related Literature at York University.

She now works for Canterbury Christ Church University as a Consultant in Leadership and Management Development and spends the rest of her time looking after her young family and an ever-increasing number of animals.

Emma’s Stormy Summer is Miranda’s first novel.

I have finished reading this book and can thoroughly recommend it, my thoughts about the book will be published very soon

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Once again this looks like it’s my kind of book! Another one to add to the list 🙂

    My self-imposed book buying ban has gone right out of the window, though I am trying… Honestly! 🙂

    • Hi Nikki,

      I seem to have had a spate of books being sent from authors and publishers for review, so I haven’t had to test my book buying ban too much.

      Also, mother-in-law has downloaded so many great novels to our kindles, that I have several weeks worth of reading, if I run a little short!!!

      It is always great to be able to help promote good new authors, whenever possible, although what I am going to do if I ever come across someone whose work I don’t like very much, I have no idea!!

      Luckily, Miranda is a great addition to the world of childrens fiction and a couple of successful book signings should see her on the road to success.

  • I wish I knew an 8 to 12 year old that I could give this book to—-Off hand, I cannot think of one! But…..maybe I will be able to if I give it some heavier thought…..In my age-group, these would have to be Great Grandchildren……Thanks for the “Heads-Up”, Yvonne….!

    • I don’t have anyone in this age group either, unfortunately.

      It would have been good to get an honest opinion from someone in the age group that the book was written for. Together with my own thoughts, it would have made for a great all-round review.

      My nieces and nephews are all past this stage now and, as yet, there are no signs of any great nieces or nephews!
