I’m so excited to be able to share the new cover for my children’s book. I’m thrilled with it, and my heartfelt thanks go to Hannah Willow for allowing me to use her wonderful artwork, and to @anuwildantz for designing the cover. If all goes to plan, Beatha will be available as a paperback and e-book by 3rd June on Amazon.
In Bilbrook Wood, the badger Beatha senses danger from nearby Burridge Farm, where dairy farmer Jake Barker plots to destroy her family and all she holds dear. Should she stay and risk it all? Or leave her ancestral home as winter fast approaches? This is Beatha’s story, where the peaceful natural world meets the world of power and greed, and where lives hang in the balance.
These are dark and desperate times for Britain’s badgers, accused by the farming community of spreading TB in cattle. The government have rejected the science and public opposition, and are planning a cull of badgers in Somerset and Gloucestershire this summer. More than ever they need our help. I intend to give 50% of the royalties from this book to The Badger Trust, who work tirelessly in defending these beautiful and innocent creatures.
Hoping to share a chapter or two with you soon but until then, Love & Light xx
