Bluebell Cottage - Magpie Mishap

Bluebell Cottage just looked like any ordinary rural, village cottage, but it had a hidden secret. It was the home of Seth Speller and his younger sister Maisy. The hidden secret to this house was that at the bottom of the garden there was a fairy village. Seth and Maisy were the only humans to know this magical village existed. Both children had many adventures with the fairies, most of which often involved helping injured wild animals back to full health.

Laura Hemming

Laura has two beautiful children, on who the story is based. She has lived in the Cheshire countryside all her life and likes to spend time outdoors. She has an interest in wildlife, as do her young children and often spends time looking after animals. The story was based on a true event, but in real life, the magpie was rescued and taken to a local animal hospital for injured wildlife. The magpie was nursed back to health and later released back into the wild. Laura is a teacher and knew from an early age that she wanted to work with children. She has been a primary school teacher for 17 years. Latterly she focused her career more towards supporting children with additional needs and those that are cared for. She thoroughly enjoys her job and hopes her writing will inspire young writers of the future.
