Sally MacIntyre, the author and illustrator of a new children’s book, Earth, Wind and Fairies, will be signing copies at the Croydon and District Masonic Halls on Oakfield Road, tomorrow, Thursday, December 8.
“Since I have been a child, I have been fascinated that fairies might exist. Now as an adult, I thought to write a story about them,” MacIntyre said.
MacIntyre was a costumer for the Showboat Theatre, the Starlight Theatre and the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles before she turned to art and writing.
“My aim in writing this book was to create an exciting, alternative world of magic. I wish to make my characters and their world real and believable.”
The book includes colourful and imaginative illustrations of the characters and surroundings, each one drawn by MacIntyre herself.
MacIntyre hopes her book will inspire more children to read, and that they will continue to follow the ongoing series of Earth, Wind and Fairies.
Earth Wind and Fairies is the story of Cecee the fairy, who is on a quest, with dangerous and daring challenges ahead of her.
Earth, Wind and Fairies is published by Austin Macauley, and is available from their website www.austinmacauley.com
