Part of P+H Books’ Childhood 6 of 1 series, “micro-memoir” Chicken & Hen is the story of when my family adopted a tiny, talkative three-year-old from the other side of town. It’s available as an anthology (e-book and paperback) or as a standalone story (e-book and paperback). It’s been a Top 5 book on adoption on Amazon.co.uk and has consistently stayed in the Top 40 for books on siblings. Who knew there was such a category?
Childhood 6 of 1 stars amazing authors including US author, activist and superhero Tania Katan, English writer and poet Sophia Blackwell, Trinidadian writer and artist Andrew J. Fitt, writer and disability rights activist Hillary Savoie and Trinidadian-Canadian writer and illustrator Tracy Craig! I’m proud to be a part of this bunch!
5 star, A Family Love Story
In this short memoir about adoption Aefa Mulholland takes the reader right into her own 10 year-old world of bewilderment, disappointment and sheer joy as her family seeks to adopt a child. And then takes us into Brian’s life and what he brought to her and to the family. It wasn’t always joy, but what shines through is the love. I came away feeling sore for Brian’s thwarted search for a positive life, despite all the love, and full of joy for Aefa Mulholland and Brian’s Wee Joe and all their adventures together. A must read! – Jennifer, on Amazon.co.uk

5 star, Beautiful recollection, honestly told

5 star, Must Read
This little gem had my laughing and crying all in the space of half an hour. It is a must read for anyone. – Barrie, Amazon.co.uk
