A children’s author based in Radlett hopes the sales of her third book will help raise much needed funds for charity.
Marion Hertz, 76, hopes to raise around £10,000 for Herts Inclusive theatre, a charity which offers drama activities and performance opportunities for young people, through the sales of her book Wands, Wings & WIFI.
The book released at the end of June was described by Marion as the modern-day version of Fairies and Elves, a book released in 1984.
Wands, Wings & WIFI is about fairies and elves, who wizards teach from around the world. The book includes the use of mobile phones, wings that need charging, and fairies wearing platform shoes.
After reading sad stories to her grandchildren, like Bambi while they were growing up, Marion was inspired to start writing as she has always loved English.
She explains: “I was reading stories to my grandchildren and most of them were so sad. I thought I could write happier ones, as they used to make me sad after reading them.”
The author started writing 16 years ago with the release of her first book Wellington Wizard of Wishes, and then went on to write My Computer Won’t Work.
