Holly and sister Kelly reach for the stars with a new children’s book!
Holly and sister Kelly are fulfilling a lifetime dream by writing a series of children’s books together called L’Etoile, School for Stars.
This new series for young readers is set in a stage school, and follows the lives, friendships and dreams of stardom of the pupils.
The first book in the series, First Term at L’Etoile, follows the journey of twin sisters Molly and Maria Fitzfoster as they enrol at L’Etoile. In a first term packed with drama and dance, midnight feasts and makeovers, the twins learn that loyalty and friendship are just as important as stepping into the spotlight and shining on stage.
The novels combine Holly’s runaway imagination and intimate knowledge of the entertainment industry, with Kelly’s creative mind and love of writing. Together, the sisters have created a glittering series of friendship and adventure.
“Kelly and I were both a couple of drama queens growing up, always putting on little shows at home for our parents and making up stories together," Holly says. "The lovely experience of actually sitting down and creating L'Etoile, School for Stars has brought back so many 'make-believe' memories for us, which would have otherwise been long forgotten. We hope the readers enjoy the world we have created.”
Kelly adds: “It's been a life-long dream for Holly and I to one day write our own children's story, and to have the opportunity to work this closely as sisters in our thirties, on a project like this, is just so special. Writing L’Etoile has re-awakened the world of friendship and make-believe we shared growing up, for us to now be able to share it with other children. We hope the books are as joyfully received, as they were joyfully written.”
L’Etoile, School for Stars is the perfect story for any young child who has ever danced in front of the mirror, sung into a hairbrush or dreamed of becoming a star… So sit tight, get ready for laughter and tears, and enjoy this wonderful journey of friendship!
First Term at L’Etoile will be published on the 20th June 2013 by Orion Children’s Books, followed by the next instalment in the series, Second Term at L’Etoile, later in the summer.
