Regular readers of my blog will know that a couple of years ago I was working with a fantastic organisation in Stevenage called the Young Carers Crew (YCC).
The charity works with young carers, offering days out, fun activities and general get togethers as a chance to escape and hang out with one another.
I was working on a book with a young carer as the central character and went to meet some of the young people to hear their stories. It was totally inspiring.
Unfortunately that book never made it BUT I did write a story called Alex in the Middle for Fiction Express where I used a lot of what I had learned from YCC. Although not a published book, Fiction Express were fantastic and agreed to print several copies for me to give as Christmas presents.
Last night I made a surprise visit to the YCC's Christmas Get Together in Stevenage to read from Alex in the Middle and present the books.
It was magical!
