About the book

Elvis


Nobody realised it was Elvis sat there, he could have been anyone, they just didn’t care.


When Elvis suddenly loses his job and his home, he has nowhere to turn, until suddenly, a little stranger steps in to help.

This story  gently raises awareness around the subject of homelessness but also represents kindness and hope.


It doesn’t matter how big and strong you are, we all need a little help sometimes.

The Inspiration Behind Elvis

‘Last New Year’s Eve I was sat at home and it was pouring with rain outside. All of a sudden, Elvis arrived in my head from absolutely nowhere and for the first time in 18 years, I wrote a book draft and saved it on to my laptop.

At the time, I honestly didn’t ever expect it to go any further than story time with my son but I just couldn’t get that elephant out my mind!!

I kept wondering if I could do something positive with the idea and even though I was nervous about it, I felt like it was a story that needed to be told.

I hope you enjoy the book and fall in love with my characters as much as I did on that rainy afternoon.
