I found this article rather interesting. It’s about a young girl, Libby Rees, who was nine when she wrote her first book, a self-help book about coping with sad situations, prompted by her parent’s separation.
She’s now publishing her second book at twelve, which seems to be about coping with new situations at school, bullying, and staying true to yourself. They’re part of a three-book deal with Aultbea Publishing.
I haven’t read the books, so I have no idea how good they are. To me, the story itself is pretty interesting. To first write a book at nine is pretty ambitious. To write a second before twelve is equally so. To land a three-book deal is downright impressive for a new author who’s an adult, but managing it as a child is amazing.
