Tara takes a magical journey into print

By -

At Coventry, we teach our journalism students the importance of being factual, but we’re delighted that Tara Behan has broken that particular rule.

She has had her first children’s book published, two years after graduating with a degree in Journalism and Media.

The Legend of Everwinter is a fairy story inspired by the works of JK Rowling and JRR Tolkein, as well as Disney films.

It tells the magical tale of three companions who set out on a heroic journey to fulfil an ancient prophecy. Along the way they must overcome mystifying challenges and treacherous conditions in a harsh but stunning land – illustrated by Tara’s partner, Matthew Hill.

And no, it’s not strictly factual.

Tara attended Saint Thomas More School and King Edward VI College in Nuneaton before studying at Coventry University. Since graduating, she has gained experience as a news reporter, and has worked as a press assistant and a freelance writer.

The Legend of Everwinter is published by Hampton Bond International, priced £3.99 and is available to buy from www.hamptonbondbooks.com and all major online book retailers.
