Endon Author Launches 2nd Book

Endon based Children’s Author Kathy Tallentire has launched her second picture book entitled ‘Rescue Me’.

The book is all about a puppy abandoned by it’s original owner who desperately wants a loving, permanent home. Brilliantly told with wonderful illustrations, Rescue Me tells the tale of the puppy’s time at a rescue centre and the friend he meets there.

Kathy’s first book, Nana Duck is also Noth Staffordshire based and contains oatcakes, canals and a bit of ‘Ay-up duck’. It has sold over 750 copies and was shortlisted for the Arnold Bennett Prize in 2018. She donated 50p for every book sold to the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.

Kathy is a former Westwood pupil. She originally worked in accountancy and took up writing following the birth of her daughter in 2016. She was inspired by the literally hundreds of books she read to her. She is hoping to build on the success of her first book with Rescue Me and the other two books she plans to publish this year.
