This week, my guest is the fab Leanne Beadle.
Leanne is a children’s author and former nurse, currently based near Hull. She was dealt a blow in 2001, when she was diagnosed with an eyesight condition called Autosomal Dominant Optic Atrophy, which is wasting of the optic nerve. By 2009, she had a guide dog called Ceris.
Leanne’s writing career began in 2015 when she wrote and self-published My Naughty Little Guide Dog, a touching memoir of Ceris and her antics. Since then she has written and self-published William’s Wonderful World of Gaming and has also had three books traditionally published by Simply Inspired Words: Sophia’s Wonderful World of Gymnastics, Jet and the Great Snoozie Heist and The Forgotten Secret.
I’ll be talking to Leanne about her books and about writing for children. And, of course, she’ll be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
