Retired interior designer and now a Mallorca-based contemporary artist and children’s author, Christine Greenslade has just published her illustrated book ‘Flying Lessons’ – suitable for children aged two to six.
Englishwoman Christine has been storytelling for many years and already has a wealth of animal stories soon to be published, with a Spot The Rabbit book (the first of a series about Spot) expected to be out for Easter 2022.
In this episode, the author talks about her love of writing for children, her diverse animal characters, finding an illustrator, dealing with technology, and subjects that need special care and attention when writing for youngsters. She also talks about the adult memoir she’s penning, and finding support from the local writing community.
And you can bring out your inner child for a few moments as Christine reads you a brief extract from ‘Flying Lessons’ – the tale of a family of baby blackbirds learning to fly.
This interview was recorded on a beautiful February day in Mallorca, beside the swimming pool at the boutique hotel Ten Mallorca.
‘Flying Lessons’ by Christine Greenslade is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats.
