Article about ‘The Travellers’ up on SCBWI UK’s website

Have a look at the article up today on the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators ‘Words and Pictures’ blog ¬†http://www.wordsandpics.org/2016/03/UK-travellers-YA-book-Rosemary-Hayes.html

Also worth reading is an article from the Advisory Council for the Education of Romany and other Travellers Рwhich talks about cuts to Traveller education in Cambridgeshire  http://acert.org.uk/blog/2016/01/14/acert-campaigns-to-preserve-cambridgeshire-traveller-education/

All the families I interviewed for my series of stories were based in Cambridgeshire where, currently, they have excellent support from staff in traveller education. So many would lose out if this was taken away from them.
