Ted York

June P Turnbull was born in London but grew up in Yorkshire. She went on to gain a history and education degree and found herself teaching special needs children of all ages. 


She loves to write. After MS took hold, she honestly thought all was over. But she mastered the computer and began to write again, taking up story writing for children she taught, then branched out to write storybooks.


Her husband retired some years ago, and they found themselves in many garden centres, where Harold was born along with Mrs Higgins.


June still has MS, but she won't let it beat her and channels all of her energy into bringinf the Sunny Days characters to life.

Sally King taught English for many years. Since retiring she has written various books including “A Flamboyance of Flamingos” and “Animal Homes”. Her books are both educational and fun, full of colour and vocabulary that she does not want to see disappear from our language.


“Fun with Similes” started as an idea to assist Years 5 and 6 pupils when writing stories in school. She wanted a little paperback book that children could keep in their school bags or on their desks, a booklet they could refer to when struggling to improve their creative writing.


Sally is passionate about language, well written and well spoken. She hopes that her books might enrich our children’s vocabulary and that some of the words she introduces to us in her books will consequently not disappear from our English language.

Proving that not all insurance men are boring, Ted York's first novel was dreamed up on a beach in the South of France in 2008 and features the loves, life and times of a modern Victorian woman.

He then turned his hand to writing children's literature and wrote Red the Robin and Friends.


When not writing, Ted concentrates on his career - spanning 45 years in insurance - and he has recently sold his business, Berkeley Alexander Ltd.


Father of two, and Sussex resident, Ted is also an avid Wolves fan. In his spare time, when he's not doing the chores for his Wife, June, Ted can be found on the Sussex Bridge circuit and, latterly, at a local Bowls Club in Lewes.
