I also enjoy writing and had my first book, ‘The Meakin Diaries’ published in July 2014 the second edition was released on 30th June 2016, to coincide with the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme which was on 1st July 2016. The book feature the diaries of Frank Meakin, my Husband’s Grandfather who fought for the Sheffield City Battalion in World War 1. His diaries were made into a programme by the ‘Discovery Channel’ in a programme called ‘ The Somme, the First 24 Hours with Tony Robinson’ produced by Dragonshead Productions. The programme centres around Frank and features Sir Tony who interviews me about Frank and his diaries and an actor actually plays the part of Frank – simply incredible!
The Meakin Diaries are available in both paperback (10.99) and hardback (£16.99) from Austin Macauley, Amazon, W H Smith, Waterstones and any other well known book sellers. Alternatively you can contact me on pennystampartist.com.
