A KEIGHLEY writer is proving ever-more prolific since giving up minute-writing to concentrate on fiction.

Debbie Spink, a former deputy clerk for Keighley Town Council, has just released her seventh book.

And following hot on the heels of new romance Educating Maggie will be a book about a real-life relative of Henry VIII.

Debbie, who writes under the pseudonym Debbie Chase, self-published You To Me Are Everything, The Confessions Of A Pet Sitter and What a Catastrophe (Teddy’s Tale) before leaving the town council.

She went on to have two pocket novels published with My Weekly magazine, Planning On Love and Romance On The Run, which are available to buy on the My Weekly website.

And she also self-published a book of poems called I Wasn’t There.

But it is Educating Maggie – released by World Castle Publishing on August 20 – that gives her the most pride.

Debbie said: “I’m really excited as it is the first of my books that is not self-published and it is good to have the support of a publisher behind me.

“There’s nothing better than knowing that the stories that you write are being read and hopefully enjoyed by people.”

Educating Maggie is available from worldcastlepublishing.com, and from online book sites including Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Educating Maggie is the story of Maggie Sears, alone after the death of her beloved husband, who meets old flame Stephen Gates at Bloomers the bakers.

A meeting with Stephen’s grown-up children doesn’t go well, and her new job in a school looks to be spoiled by her curvaceous co-worker.

A new friendship might just help her overcome insurmountable problems to gain her heart’s desire.

Debbie said she was half-way through her next novel Puppy Love, a romance centred around a dog/cat sanctuary.

She added: “World Castle Publishing has also accepted my next novel A Step Back in Time which will be available within the next few months.

“This book is based on the story of Margaret Pole who, for the last 20 years of her life, lived in Warblington Manor or Warblington Castle as it was sometimes called, in Warblington in Hampshire, which is near to my birth place, Emsworth.

“She was the second cousin of Henry the Eighth and was executed by beheading under his orders in 1541.”
