Two years ago I stood in front of this magnificent Horse Chestnut tree in the Royal Gardens in Prague.
All the trees had plaques and a number.
A story began to grow in my head and I wrote quite a few versions.
Then I read of a man who had re-created an entire forest in India and a couple in Brazil who planted 2 million saplings.
So with the help of my SCWBI critique group, I re-wrote and polished the Picture Book text and titled it ‘Sanctuary.’
Today I submitted it to a small publisher, with hope.
