I first discovered this author through her publishing company Tannbourne Ltd., who are themselves a small fledgling company, who have Miranda Newboult as their first published author.
Miranda is an author of childrens books and her first novel is ‘Emma’s Stormy Summer’.
I have been invited to read and review this book, by Tannbourne Ltd. and although well past childhood myself, I am really looking forward to seeing how writing for our youngsters has moved on over the years.
“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.
About 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.
“When I was growing up I read books all the time but never dreamed I would write one myself. Books were my escape rather than my reality. I was a child who enjoyed school and my most inspirational teachers were those that taught English and shared my passion for people who existed both on paper and in the imagination.
I am not a fussy reader, many different genres catch my attention, and when I start a book, I always finish it, totally immersed in the story. When I started to write, I experienced something similar. I was nagged and harassed by the story, only finding peace once I had committed the words to paper – I was being pestered to tell the tale. I hope I continue to be for a long time.”

I wish Miranda every success with her writing career, as I passionately believe in anything or anyone, who can capture our childrens attention and encourage them to read.
