My first short story was published in the book ‘An Advent Calendar of Stories’ by Bridge House Publishing).
The story is called ‘The Princess Who Wanted Snow’ and it’s about a feisty princess who has been trapped in a castle by a selfish prince. It’s a magical story from the point of view of one of the castle cats (named ‘Aly’).
The princess tells the prince that the only way she will marry him is if he makes it snow. The problem is that it never snows.
It was inspired by a tiny cat I saw when I visited an old castle whilst on holiday in Portugal and the first draft was written on that holiday.
If you’re looking for a present to give to a child (aged 6+) then this collection of stories would be perfect.
