Jules Garvey Welsh writes about self-publishing for reluctant readers

Originally from the Black Country I settled in Hampshire after completing my teaching degree Jules Garvey Welchat Chichester University. I am married with two teenage children and work part time as a primary school teacher.

My first self-published novel was called ‘The Drefus Academy’ (Agueda). I have a great passion for encouraging reluctant readers and so wanted to write a book which had an exciting story and plot, but which had accessible language for those children who were not quite ready for the more challenging text of popular novels.

The Dreyfus Academy (Agueda) is a sci-fi, time travel novel about a boy with exceptional observation and reasoning skills, who is recruited into a secret government academy, training young people for time travel missions. Encouraged by the positive reviews of the first book, I am currently working on the next in the series.

I have also written an anthology for adults called ‘Beyond the Bell Tower.’ The stories are written from many perspectives. You will see through the eyes of a desperate teenager viewing the world from the bell tower, feel the heartbeat of a woman accused by a medieval witch finder and experience the emotions of young soldiers in the theatre of battle.

This anthology offers passion and danger, intrigue and death and gives us a glimpse into the pain of the troubled mind.

Using a palette that explores the colours of life and loss, I have woven tales ranging from the deepest grey of the trenches, to the brightest hues of an afterlife.
