Josie Dom is a children’s author learning to embrace her individuality. Join her in a world of imagination where anything could happen and the most important things are friendship and kindness.
Josie lives in the small town of Halstead in Essex with her husband Nic Phine (illustrator of the Lum books), their son and daughter, a mixed-up dog (LabLurchTrievOodle), Frank, and a big fluffy ginger cat called Mittens.
Although Josie’s books are too young for her children now, it was their love of stories when they were little which inspired Josie to pick up her pen and create.
After a lifetime in sensible office jobs, Josie is relishing the opportunity to explore her creative side.
The event is part of a day of free family-friendly activities at Chelmsford Library. Find out more here.
