Several years on, EK Books has blossomed from a handful of titles to the impressive children's imprint of Exisle Publishing stabling titles by well-known creators and rising new talent that expound the premise 'books with heart on issues that matter'.
Fortunately for me, domestic violence is an issue that matters very much to them.
EK Books team for being foresighted and bold enough to not only take on this delicate subject but for embracing Flick's story with as much enthusiasm and determination as I.
As Holyrood Lane's illustrator, Nicky Johnston and I will attest, they are a pure joy to work with.
Thank you EK Books!
Come back soon - it's almost publication day!
