Today I’d like to introduce the third of the authors who will be sharing the Books, Beautiful Books stall with me at Mill Road Fair on 6 December. Saffra Monteiro has already achieved an impressive amount in her young life, having tackled teen bullying and severe ill health to gain academic qualification with flying colours. She has since become a published author with Pegasus, interspersing her writing career with acting and modelling. You can get to know a little more about Saffra from the following press release and links, and she would be delighted if you’d come and meet her in person next Saturday.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Destiny Falls is the first in a saga of three novels. It follows the unique story of a nineteen-year-old girl. Solly is beautiful, talented and courageous – the linchpin of an Alpine Search and Rescue unit, and the leader of a highly competitive ski tournament team. With the handsome and charming Gwain by her side, a host of colourful friends, and an abandoned wolf cub for company, what could possibly go wrong? But hidden away among the snowy peaks, all is not well in the sleepy village of La Tourunche. Not long after Solena’s awaited return, a mysterious and elusive figure begins watching her from the woods. Is he a figment of her imagination or real? And what is the secret behind the talisman hanging on the wall of Madame Perregaux’s dress shop? As the plot begins to thicken, a member of the team begins to wreak havoc and with time their motivations become all too clear. Events take a turn for the worst and matters are left on a jaw-dropping cliff-hanger – quite literally! As lives hang precariously in the balance, all hope seems to be lost. But will someone come to the rescue or is it too late for Solena?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in Cambridge, nineteen-year-old actress, model and writer, Saffra Monteiro, known by her friends as Bambi, is very young for someone who has already had a far from ordinary life. Early teenhood was made impossibly hard for her by bullying, followed in her mid teens by extremely poor health after contracting a severe form of flu. As a true fighter she pulled through the worst of it – writing during her illness became a crucial life line and creative outlet which saved her. Now a strong minded young lady, she has completed her GCSEs and A levels with flying colours. She has immersed herself in the world of writing and is passionate about what she does. It is a huge achievement for her to be one of the youngest writers to be published with Pegasus.
Copies of ‘Destiny Falls’ can be purchased direct from the publisher by visiting our website at Pegasus Publishers or by calling 01223 370012.
