My name is Tracey Hanson and I am the founder of The Josh Hanson Trust which is a charity that was established in memory of my late Son. I want to write a series of short stories that can be used as part of a series of books and for presentations that will be made to schools, colleges and universities talking about knife crime, loss, grief and the journey of recovery.
On my journey I have read a great many books and one that had a big impact on me was 'Billy, Me & You' A memoir of grief and recovery by Nicola Streeten - Published by Myraid Editions.
The illustration conveyed more than just a flat image but an emotions too and they resonated with me. I would like to start with 3 main characters first, Josh, Myself and my daughter Brooke, so a boy a girl and a mum, but characters will be added one the initial illustration is agreed.
I look forward to hearing from you.
