UK Children’s Book Author Tamsin Wood Teaches Life Lessons Through Fairy Tales

Originally from Jersey in the Channel Islands, Tamsin Wood moved to the UK mainland and began her journey as a children's book author. From a simple bedtime story with two characters based on her children that evolved into an entire cast of fairies, Tamsin was inspired to create Canglford Nock Creations. Her books are born from her love of writing, motherhood and storytelling. To date, Tamsin has authored more than a dozen rhyming fairy story books filled with life lessons that teach children to be "kind, be brave and to be a good friend." Her books also delve into important issues such as loss and developing crucial mental health coping skills as well as seasonal books in celebration of Christmas and Easter.
