LILY A picture book for children
ABOUT ME I have had a love affair with children's books for as long as i can remember and even wrote and illustrated books and scripts as a child. 11 years ago i trained in the art of marionette making and performing....and have been making marionettes and puppets ever since. Its no wonder i have naturally combined the joy of writing with puppetry.
Lily celebrates her 11th birthday this year as she was my first born. We have travelled far and wide together performing in India, USA and Europe.
I have spent much of my professional life working with children and young people. I recently qualified as a humanistic councellor and therapist having completed most of my clinical training in a primary school. The drive behind my study and practice has been to deepen my understanding and awareness of human nature and child psychology in order to use it in the field of puppetry. How can i help children resolve inner and outer conflict through the medium of puppetry ? Tra lah.......books !

So.......alas, my chosen printers do not seem to be turning out the high quality print i expect and need. Next week, i may have to change printers. Naturally, this means yet another delay. The good news is.....you will all be even more excited when your copy of the book actually arrives ! In the meantime, if anyone can suggest a well reputed company who do fine art Book binding & printing to a high standard let me know ! Many thanks for all your patience.....with love, Cassie & Lily x x
