Service Description

Susanna Bailey divides her time between writing, freelance social-work, and lecturing in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University, where she also studied. S. F. Bailey wrote Snow Foal during her time at the same university where she drew much inspiration from her tutor, award-winning David Almond. Snow Foal has already been shortlisted for the Joan Aitken Future Classics Prize. Snow Foal: a beautiful and heart-wrenching middle grade debut, this title is a memorable story, full of love, healing, friendship, and hope. When eleven-year-old Addie goes to stay with a foster family on a remote Exmoor farm in the midst of a very cold winter, she is full of hurt, anger and a deep mistrust of everyone around her. But when she rescues a tiny wild foal from the moorland snow, Addie discovers that perhaps she’s not so alone after all. And as adventure and unexpected friendship blossom, Addie is determined that both of them will know what it is to be home again soon . . . Snow Foal is a perfect example of a window and a mirror book and is perfect for readers who have experienced prolonged separation from parents/guardians; middle grade readers that love horses and stories about them; families looking for a warm read to enjoy together; teachers, readers, and librarians drawn to beautiful, emotive prose; and children who have had to deal with trauma and are looking for inspiration. Here is a link to a sample of Snow Foal: The second focus book of the session is Susanna's latest book, Smuggler's Fox, which is set in Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay, is about a boy who is put into Care when his Mum disappears.
