Local businessman to publish second children’s book
Cotswolds local Graham Jones has released a second children’s book, Time Travelling Toby and the Battle of Trafalgar, following the outstanding success of his first book.
Graham, who lives in Winchcombe with wife Keston and three young boys, has been delighted with the response to Time Travelling Toby, he says, “As a father I knew that there was a place for a different kind of book, one that children would enjoy but could also educate about key historical events in an entertaining way.
“I love history, and I love passing that passion on to others – the interaction we have had with children when we have taken the books into schools and presented our workshop at festivals has been amazing.
“It’s a fun way of learning about important historical events. Children love playing pretend, and what’s more exciting than pretending to travel in time?” Graham enthuses.
Graham is loving his new role as an author and has written and self-published the books outside of his day job. Having spent his working life in KBB sales – Graham is currently Marketing Director for Mereway – writing is a bit of a departure from the norm, but he says it’s the fulfilment of a long held ambition.
“I love history and literature, so publishing the Toby books has been truly amazing,” Graham comments. “The first book is selling really well and we can’t wait to take this second book out on the road. We have an interactive presentation and workshop which we will be taking around local schools.”
