Coleen Degnan-Veness

Hastings, United Kingdom


I have had more than 20 books published for learners of English as a Foreign Language: simplified readers published by Pearson Education and Macmillan Education. Also three grammar books and one travel guide (The AA Key Guide to New York City). I have recently (2015) written and self-published a series of graded readers for native English speaking children called Seaside Readers. So far, there are two title in the series: "Here Comes Fisherman Fred!" and "Fish or Chips?" which sell in local shops, galleries, museums and the Information Centre in Hastings as well as Hastings branch of Waterstones. They can also be bought directly from me.
