    “Cane Toads” by Janet Ollerenshaw is published

    Secrets abound in the small community of Little Bidwell

    About the Book:
    The peaceful, humdrum life of the tiny community at Little Bidwell is shaken to the core by the arrival of several and various visitors. Some have come to appreciate the respite and solitude this secluded and semi-isolated spot offers, but others have a more sinister purpose in mind.

    At the centre of events is an ancient chapel whose uses over the years have ranged from place of worship to cattle shed. What will be its function this time?

    A runaway child, a grieving widow, a retired pop star and a large dog, romp through the pages as subterfuge and secrets unfold and the Cane Toad is finally ousted.

    About the Author:
    Janet Ollerenshaw is a retired English & Music teacher and mother of seven children. She has lived in Hertfordshire for most of her life and has been involved with Scouting, animals and arts & crafts alongside her teaching career. She writes for pleasure and enjoys word-craft, so her writing can be prosaic at times as she feels the experience of reading should be more than just a good story, rather like a fine wine, which touches senses other than simply taste and satisfaction and which lasts the test of time.

    Janet has a M.A. in Educational Research from Cambridge and studied with the Open University for her first Degree in Humanities with Music and English Language. She does seasonal work as an exam marker for Edexcel and for the Cambridge International Exam board. Janet also published the “Turning” series of novels entitled “Inside Out”, “Upside Down” and “Back to Front”, along with another cosy British murder-mystery entitled “Secret of the Snail”.

    Excerpt from “Cane Toads”:
    “Excuse me,” she whispered and he finally looked down into her serious hazel eyes.
    “Oh!” he exclaimed, “and who might you be?”
    “It doesn’t matter who I am but I need some help with something important.” She tried to speak clearly but was so unused to talking to anyone other than Christopher, that her voice came out squeakily and rather quietly, “he’s up in the woods; in my den, I can’t carry him,” she said.
    Fortunately for her, Clive did not wait to ask questions. He could sense the urgency in the young girl’s demeanour and reaching for his coat and boots, he asked her to wait just a moment and he would come. She waited, standing on one leg and resisting the urge to run, but did not immediately notice that the dog lady had joined her by the door. “Are we going somewhere?” she asked, not who are you or what are you doing here, and Bonnie was both surprised and grateful. “Yes,” she whispered again, “He’s just coming now.”
