Donna Freed with Wanda Whiteley, author of The Goldhanger Dog

Jul 29, 05:51 PM

As a commissioning editor at Harper Collins, Wanda Whiteley was in the business of saying no to the majority of authors who came her way. She founded manuscriptdoctor.co.uk so she could put her expertise to work for new authors. Wanda then decided it would only be fair to put herself in their shoes and the result is her debut historical novel, The Goldhanger Dog. The young protagonist, fifteen-year-old Dela, has an unusual relationship to animals which has caused her East Anglian neighbours to brand her as a witch. She finds shelter in the court of Princess Mary in the dangerous times of uncertain succession while the boy-king Edward lay on his deathbed. An immersive read with some delicious magical elements appropriate for young adults and beyond.
