WORTH THE WAIT: Radlett woman’s children’s book published after four-year-wait

 Published on: 14th June 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Radlett woman has completed the four-year-long journey to get her children’s book published.

Ilcen Sezer, a 63-year-old resident, has completed the short story, ‘What’s that Noise?”, with the book now available for people of all ages to buy and read.

The book was originally published in 2019, but after the COVID-19 pandemic, it was withdrawn, with a republishing taking place now.

Now, it features Ilcen’s original story, as well as hand-drawn illustrations telling the tale.

Speaking about her inspiration behind the book, Ilcen said: “I read a lot to my children. I also made up stories too.  As the next generation came along, I used to tell them my made-up stories. This was one of them.

“The children of my family who now have children of their own said I should put it down on paper, so I did, for my great nephew.

“My son then said he knew an artist, so had it produced, and the rest is history!”

Ilcen’s son Besim said: “I am very proud of her. It’s a really touching book, such a lovely story with beautiful illustrations.”
