Description

Auteur

I am a dad of two grown children, and a stepfather to three more. I started writing five years ago with books designed to appeal to the inner child in adults - very English humour. My daughter Louise, reminded me of the bedtime stories I told her, and suggested I write them down for others to enjoy. I haven't yet, but instead I have written this eight-book series for 7 to 11-year-old boys and girls. Each one is a traditional story dealing with negative behaviours, but with positive outcomes. Although the main characters, Billy and his friends, are made up, Billy's dog, Jacko, is based on our much-loved family pet, which, with our second dog Malibu, caused havoc and mayhem to the delight of my children and consternation of me.Prior to writing, I was a college lecturer, and later worked in the computer industry, at a time before smartphones and tablets, when computers were powered by steam, and stood as high as a bus.

Suitable for boys and girls aged 7 to 9 years.


Keeping secrets safe can be a burden for a child. Children need to be able to confide in a responsible adult. Help your child understand the impact that keeping secrets can have on all those involved.


Billy Field and Ant Turner are asked to keep a secret from Max Turner, Ant's sister, about her upcoming birthday present. What starts off as innocent fun, ends up being nasty when Ant uses the secret to 'get his own back'. When Billy accidently damages his dad's new car he makes a pact with Ant about keeping it a secret. This puts a burden on them both, and nearly gets Eddy Jost into a lot of trouble.





Does Max find out what her surprise birthday present is? Did Eddy get into more trouble? Will Billy own up? How does Ant cope with keeping secrets?


Billy Knows A Secret is the eighth title in the Billy Books series. Each book addresses a unique topic-bullying, arrogant pride, jealousy, lying, stealing, lack of self-belief, understanding money, and secrets. Written to help parents, guardians and teachers deal with the issues that challenge pre-teen children; each topic is presented in a gentle way through storytelling. Setting the issues in a meaningful context helps children to understand the challenges, and to see things from a different perspective. The books act as icebreakers allowing for discussions of difficult subjects. Additionally, each title is supported by a free activity book to reinforce the learning, while having fun.


Buying this book today will guide your child in dealing with this destructive behaviour.
