Children's book set in Fowey has been published
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
A new children's book set in the town of Fowey has been published. The author, along with her husband moved here back in the early 1960s.
The book, Jem the Fowey Pirate is an adventure story aimed at children aged 2-3 years, and the illustrated story tells the story of a boy, a boat and a book of pirate adventures which spurs Jem to have an adventure of his own.
The book features well-known location around Cornwall including Tom's Boatyard in Polruan, Readymoney Cove and the Harbour Master's steps on Albert Quay.
The author Jennifer Bells, self-published the book - the second time she has done so. Her previous book tells of how she and husband Malcolm came to live in Fowey. The couple lived in London, and then went on holiday to Cornwall which they loved, and after going back to their busy and noisy house in London, decided to move to Cornwall permanently.
Bell has been writing stories for most of her life, mainly for children and her retirement project is to sort through them and find one or two to publish. Jem the Fowey Pirate is published by Jennifer Bell in conjunction with Writersworld.
It is currently on sale at Fowey, and at the Duchy Nursery in Lostwithiel, where Jennifer will be book signing on Friday, February 19.
