TOUCHING TRIBUTE: Herts resident releases fantasy children’s novel written by late mother 

 Published on: 21st April 2021   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A book featuring stories written by a Nash Mills resident’s late mother have been published and are suitable for all children to enjoy.

The book which was written by Christine Jordan is called The Wonderful Tales of Pixie Bramble and his Woodland Friends started when Christine read a poem to granddaughter Keelei when she was younger.

Her son Graham Jordan said that after his mum passed away from cancer in 2015 he decided together with his dad that her stories should be shared.

He said: “My mum was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and not long after that she wrote a poem called If you Believe in Fairies for her granddaughter Keelei.

“She loved it and then a few weeks later she wrote a story out of blue and she continued writing from there and wrote 37 stories in total.

“We thought they should be shared so other people could enjoy them.”

Graham continued to say that the first book which contains five stories has been a big hit so far.

He said: “I posted on Facebook when the book was released on February 25 and that post was shared 8,000 times.

“The nicest part is that the boo got released the week before World Book Day and a little girl called Emary who lives in Wales dressed up as one of the characters.

“It shows the massive impact the book had straight away and made it worth it.”

Shortly after the release of the book the family went to Christine’s memorial bench where Keelei was photographed with the book, a heart-warming tribute to her nan.

Graham said: “We saw her a few days after the book was released and she was pleased as punch, she couldn’t stop smiling.”
