Sally Jenkins is based in the West Midlands and writes part-time around her job as a computer programmer. She targets her short stories at a range of competitions and magazines. Sally also produces the odd article on writing-related topics.
When she is not tapping away at a keyboard, Sally enjoys Body Combat classes and church bell-ringing.
She would advise all would-be writers to join a local class or group. Writing is a frustrating, solitary pursuit and meeting other like-minded people is necessary to stop yourself going mad!

Diary of a Lollipop Lady by Hazel Wheeler

I rarely read memoir or autobiography but the title ‘Diary of a Lollipop Lady‘ jumped out from the library shelf. The subtitle is, ‘Memories of a Crossing Patrol in the 1960s’ and it is exactly what it says on the tin.[image error]


Hazel Wheeler spent 1966 as a lollipop lady in Yorkshire. She has two young daughters, her husband is working all hours and the debt collectors are after them. Back t...

An epic book, in terms of an excellent read and the ground covered by the narrative.
All the characters are well drawn and I found myself empathising with and rooting for Marion all the way through.

Recommended!

Posey, the giant imaginary rabbit, was the star of this book for me - I loved him!
'The Adults' is a light read about modern family life. It took me a long time to start rooting for any of the characters but by the end I was on the side of Alex who

I enjoyed all the twists and turns in this book. Aside from the actual criminal investigation, I enjoyed following the relationship of Maura and the priest. Will be looking for more books in the series to see how that pans out.

This Is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay

Don't read this book when pregnant! It's a warts and all tale of life as an obs & gynae junior doctor. It is in parts funny and also extremely sad.
It should possibly be compulsory reading for anyone considering a career in medicine - or maybe

I loved the concept of this book - 8 people on Mars and one is a killer. The narrative is interspersed with leaked memos showing the cost-cutting exercise that led to the prisoners being used to build the base on Mars ready for NASA. And the ending ...more

Read this for book club. I thought this was a book that got better the further into it I got. Possibly because our memories of being a young child can be a bit hazy but we are able to recall much more vividly our teenage years. The book is in parts ...more

I'm a PD James fan and this book didn't disappoint. There were lots of twists and turns and a certain amount of concentration was needed to keep up with everything. I felt the characters were well drawn, mostly they were selfish and self-centred - ...more
