I remember when I was about 10 years old sitting in the garden with a typewriter writing a children’s story (I don’t know what happened to that story, I have a feeling that I never finished it!). However, I know that the love of reading and stories has been present throughout my life.

When my first niece was two, I wrote her two stories; one about a teddy bear (who is mine, but she loves it) and another about her stuffed cat toy visiting Granny’s house.  Writing a story is not always easy, but the enjoyment the child gets from having a story that is really personalised to them is such a joy to see.

My second niece LOVES owls and for her birthday last year I wrote her a story about two of her toy owls, Lulu and Big Shiny going to the beach. They saw fish, got splashed by waves and ate ice-cream – all her favourite things!  That book (even with my dodgy hand drawn owls – I am not an artist) went straight to number one in the storybook collection!

At the beginning of June, I entered the Antler startup program where in eight weeks you had to come up with an idea and pitch to investors for funding.  I didn’t start with a storybook idea initially but with an environmental slant (that’s one of my other passions).  It wasn’t until week seven that I came back to the storybooks, when I had lunch with a friend and we got chatting about her daughter who always asks her to replace the names of the story characters with hers or her sister’s name.  That was all the inspiration I needed to remember my passion for writing story books. The week after I pitched to investors, I got funding and  started Story Antics.

Story Antics is a range of personalised children’s books; personalised because we know that more engaged children learn better, and having yourself in a story is more engaging!  We currently have six book titles aimed at children six and under and in those stories, you can choose the name of each character and what they look like.  Additionally, four of our books include the whole family, so you really can make it personalised to reflect your child’s life.

Needless to say my passion for stories and writing means that I have written three of the books – Shark SwimThe Cheeky Owl and The Christmas Present (you might notice that my niece’s owl has been featured again!).

    She would be even more obsessed in a book that had her name in it called Mellies Shark Swim! What a fantastic idea Santa aka Story Antics!

  • The Cheeky Owl. My son loves all animals and is very cheeky!

  • In our family, there is currently a baby boom
    With Aunties and Uncles and Mums and Dads
    Giving us new babies to meet
    For the older siblings, like 3 year old Teddy
    There is so much change, so many babies to snuggle
    “The New Baby” would be a treat

  • My daughter would love any of the books as long as it has her name in it, as the main character. Often I have to change the character names, in books, to her and her friends names. As It’s nearly Christmas, she would really love The Christmas Present book.
