I first had the idea for Christmas Pancakes back in the mid-90s and wrote it as a half hour radio play. Due to being an inexperienced writer at the time, it wasn’t executed particularly well, but I thought the story had potential, so kept a copy in a box up my parents’ loft. In early 2015, when my mum was clearing some space, she came across it. I re-read it and thought ‘I think I’ll re-write this as a novel.’
The manuscript is complete and is currently with an illustrator. A Dexter Trumpet website will be created shortly followed by plans for a book launch and visits to schools and libraries.
