Dr Niamh On The Plum Tree

Childhood Imagination Sows Seeds of Future Brilliance

Farewell To Plum Tree Books

new dr niamh logo with heart final2Dear friends and followers, some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been around for some time. I have been very busy, caught up in the publishing/writing world and on a massive learning curve. There has been no time to blog or touch in with any of you.  I am launching my own brand of children’s books. I perceive a gap in the market for what I want to do (I would do it anyway) and have decided to take the very deep plunge into doing what I love.

I am very excited about this. I am drawing on my Ph.D, which was all about learning through the imagination to specialise in childhood imagination. And what better way than to pour my knowledge and experience into writing and publishing children’s books? I hope you will follow me over to my new website: Dr Niamh Children’s Books where everything will become as it should be. P.s. Please follow me on twitter: @DrNiamh and I will follow you back!

My new space is filled with magic.  I hope to see some of you there and that you will subscribe to my new site.

One little house-keeping message is that I will also post my blogs to here for the time being during my site move; (the site is on wordpress.org, which doesn’t have the facility to reblog!)

Thank you for your support.

About Dr Niamh

When I was a little girl (a very, very long time ago), I used to love learning new, really big words like ‘discombobulate’. As I grew, my love of words grew too, until I loved them so much, I could not stop writing them down. One day, as I was scribbling a particular word, a very peculiar thing happened. The word shouted at me, “Stop! Don’t put me there!” As you can imagine, I was shocked and nearly fell off my chair. When I recovered somewhat, I said to the word, “Could you stop shouting, please? I am not used to it.” Can you guess what happened next? No! I thought not. The word said, “I might be small, but I will misbehave if you do not use me properly. I will not tell the story you would like me to tell. I will say something entirely different!” I dropped my pen. I hoped that by dropping my pen, the word would stop talking. Alas! It did not. It carried on chitterchobbling, even after the ink had dried. I was in a pickle. I could not allow my words to run away with my story, now could I? I don’t know about you, but when this sort of thing happens, there is only one thing left to do if you prefer not to spend your time arguing. “Very well,” said I. “I will do as you ask if you will just be quiet and allow me to concentrate.” Since that day, I have been paying special attention to every word I invite into my stories. After all, a story should say exactly what it means to say and not be led astray. With love from Dr. Niamh, Ph.D in Learning Through The Imagination and Founder of Dr Niamh Children's Books. www.drniamhchildrensbooks.com
