ABOUT STORY ANTICS
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 Swim, The Cheeky Owl and The Christmas Present (you might notice that my niece’s owl has been featured again!).
