The Wozard of Iz ebook is alive!

Hooray! After 5 years of writing and trying and rejections and all that other stuff that writers go through, I have finally decided to publish my own book. It’s called ‘The Wozard of Iz and the Great Blue Ruby’. It’s all about a rubbish wizard called Pancho Tonto who, no matter how hard he tries…
