We are so very proud of our son Alban. He has overcome a great many challenges in his 13 years and continues to do so with great dignity, strength and courage. Alban has been home educated for some years now. His autism and other related issues meant that school was not the right environment for him to thrive in and so we made the decision to take time out. Alban is autonomously educated. This means he chooses what and when he wants to learn and we then facilitate it. Writing has become his passion and he attends a creative writing group with other budding, young home educated writers. We so want to honour his talent and hard work by publishing his first book. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. If you choose to help us ,Thank You so very much .Here is an extract from chapter 10 to give you an idea of his writing style:
'Scoldrus, wake up you've been asleep for too God, you look hideous.' Said Sulfur, taking a few steps back as Scoldrus rolled out of bed.
'As you can see I didn't sleep last night.' Scoldrus grumbled. He proceeded to get dressed slowly while Sulfur looked under the bed for something.
'Here it is!' She said after a few moments of rummaging, she pulled out a dusty silver helmet with curled horns on both sides. 'Do you think I should take this helmet with me?'
'Are you actually listening?'
'Oh for goodness sake. Should I take this helmet with me?'
