Pearl spent twenty years with young people teaching mathematics and IT and gained a Ph.D researching the fascinating area of ‘Mental Models developed by children between the ages of nine and fourteen.’ In retirement she began to paint finding a particular interest in plants and animals. These included paintings for her grandchildren which stimulated visual imagination and told a story. A ‘Writing for Children’ course with The London School of Journalism helped her to get ideas into words and writing started. Membership of Denmead Writers’ Group with leader writer Carol Westron and fellow students encouraged and developed her love of words and visual imagination. Eirwen and the Gossamer Rainbow is her debut novel and first of the Nereid Trilogy.
From the Author
Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell tell us that dragons can be beaten. (Neil Gaiman, Coraline)
