Check this out Brad in womans Weekly in OZ, go to guestbook- Bab Horton


Prize-winning Author
Babs Horton was born in 1953 in Tredegar, South Wales coutesy of the Pope and the Catholic missionaries who, in the previous year, were berating young women about the evils of birth control.

She moved to London in 1957 and attended seven different schools, miraculously gaining enough of an education to take a degree.

Babs has taught in many Plymouth Secondary Schools and her last job was at Plymouth Hospital School working as a teacher at the Young People's Centre.

She took up a Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellowship at Plymouth University in September 2007.

Babs' first book, 'A Jarful of Angels', won the Pendleton May First Novel Award and she was short-listed for the Authors Club Award. 'Dandelion Soup' was published in 2004, 'Wildcat Moon' in 2006 and her new novel, 'Recipes for Cherubs', has now been published.

Babs Horton's uniquely atmospheric novels, full of mystery, magic and suspense continue to captivate and enthrall readers around the world from school children (key stage 3 & 4) to adults who relish a literary feast of laughter and enchantment.

Hi Brad
I think you will find it was out the 1st week in september, my daughter phoned telling saying she had read a story in the Womans weekly and was amazed that the author was from Tredegar In the short while between purchasing the magazine she has been in contact with Babs Horton and as had a lovely letter in return.
I went to school with her mother and family who were from Four Rows
