Hello, Paul here today. I’m very happy to announce the launch of author Diane Major’s children’s book Mason and Bess: The Adventure Begins. Click on the title link or cover images to head to Amazon for purchase). It is now available for purchase on Amazon and Lulu (and already has a 5 star review). It combines a dog, a fun main character, and a bit of time travel. What‘s not to love? Here is the blurb:
Mason lives with his Mom, and their cocker spaniel named Bess. The little family live in a small town and Mason attends the local school. Without his Mom’s permission, Mason takes part in the annual Sports Day. Mason’s actions trigger a series of events which will dramatically change their future…
Now a bit about the author:

Diane grew up in Horden, a mining village in the North East of England, UK. She is happily married with two grown daughters and two grandchildren.

Diane gained her professional qualification in Youth & Community Work at Durham University in 1988. Once qualified she worked in the voluntary sector and then for local government which offered her the opportunity to develop many skills. During her career, Diane worked in Community Development, Youth Work, and Adult Learning. She has enjoyed watching staff, and service users, gain skills and grow into confident and articulate people.

Diane took early retirement in 2011. She now enjoys spending time with her family, writing, and gardening, as well as fundraising for a local charity that works with children and young people. 

Although Diane has written several books this is her first children’s novel.

All of Diane’s novels are an escape from reality, if only for the time it takes you to read one of them.
