A New Book for Children

.”Annie and Koos of the Bushveldt” will be published before the end of 2016. It is a book for younger readers, or their parents who might read to them, based  loosely on the writings of Nonnie De La Rey during the Boer War.

It is historical fiction.  But it isn’t just about history, the children on the wagons with Nonnie meet with much adventure along the way. There are  wild animals, raging storms, cannon fire , a strange ghost, and a comet which streaks across the night sky.  All the while, Koos must protect his pet chicken, Cluck, from Nonnie’s casserole pot.

I’ve had much enjoyment from researching and writing this book and hope to publish more.
