Local woman Helen Buck has written a children’s book, which is being published through Amazon.
The book entitled The Dragon In The Park is a story about a huge dragon that lives in the local park.
“The story features the ‘Dear Dragon’, a wise lady, a phoenix, wise people, blessings, special water, friendships and a celebration surrounding a playground that is built at the park where the ‘Dear Dragon’ lives,” Ms Buck said.
She is both the writer and illustrator and said it is a juvenile fiction, fantasy story suitable for children up to primary school age. It’s in large print.
“The story is filled with light and ancient healing energies to help the children with their life, as the little ones need lightness, blessings, positivity and protection. It’s especially good to read to children before going to bed,” she said.
Ms Buck is a well-known healer who works with energies of the land, ancient wisdom and forest knowledge.
She was inspired to write the book while thinking about one of the local parks.
“I felt I needed to go and connect with the land energies there,” she said.
“And that’s when all my inspirations started, mainly about the times of myths and legends.
“I had such a deep connection with the ‘spirit of place energies’ at the park that I ended up running a workshop to help others connect deeply too.”
