A BROMSGROVE author has had his first novel for children published.
Tim McGovan’s new book; The Girl with the Green Eyes, is initially based in the Hanbury area and is for both boys and girls aged 10 to 13-years-old.
The freelance writer, who was born and raised in the town, says the novel has a strong science fiction basis but deals with issues familiar to many children.
Among the issues featured are loneliness, the yearning for an absent father, and the strength that can be found in close family relationships.
It tells the story of 10-year-old Lauryn Hobbs who is intrigued by reports of mysterious objects in the night sky, and troubled by the intrusive voices which invade her dreams.
Tim, who lives in the town with his wife and four children, said: “As a former primary school teacher I believe that I understand what children want from a book and have targeted the age group in the belief that high quality fiction helps to develop children's reading and writing abilities.”
The book is available to purchase from Amazon.
