Having grown up in the Mediterranean and having later lived and worked in various
countries, Amelia Curzon eventually settled permanently in the United Kingdom.
She is the mother of two grown children who provide her with much of her
inspiration in life. Amelia's interests include horses and all other animals, the
environment, reading, and of course writing.
Amelia has been writing short stories and poems since childhood and had created
and narrated many stories to her own children in their younger years. Insomuch as
her stories have always been about animals it seems only natural her first novel be
written for the genres children and teen and contain lots of four legged creatures.
Amelia wrote the first draft of Mungai and the Goa Constrictor a few years ago,
proudly sent the finished product to a handful of traditional publishers and after only
3 rejections felt totally defeated. Silly! But that was then. The story was put safely
away. After setting up and building up her own company, she forgot all about the
manuscript. Until that is, her son found it, read it and passed on to his sister to
read. Between them they persuaded Amelia to try again. Spurred on by her
children's faith in her, she decided to approach the task of re-editing and updating
and the mammoth and mind boggling mission of self-promotion. Armed with bucket
loads of good, and some bad, advice Amelia plunged headfirst into the daunting
world of self-publishing.
Mungai and the Goa Constrictor is now published as an eBook on Amazon and
soon to be in paperback on Createspace.
