Yay! My Festival interview by Matthew Toffolo has been promoted to one of the best NEW stories of the month! Thank-you.
Film rights to raise awareness of women’s exploitation are quite another matter. Aren’t they? I’m thinking…
Who could be interested in going to see an empowering film lifting the lid on grooming? #me2
Novel Transcript Reading of WHAT IF I GO? by Polly White
Huge thanks go to Wildsound for hosting an extract from my manuscript, as part of their Novel Festival. Special appreciation goes to actor Kate Fenton.
Here, I’m raising awareness of how a vulnerable student gets taken in by an exploitative predator. This extract shows the grooming of a fifteen-year-old girl. Beware of the last violent scene!
Please help me give a heads up, send the link to Freshers and college students so they don’t fall prey to gangs.
This was in the Times today about taxi drivers in Birmingham. I feel that my research was accurate, I’m sorry to say.-
Taxi scandal: criminal culture in the Birmingham cab trade
Let’s be wise and spread the word to save others falling prey to criminal subculture.

As we commemorate the , it is important to remind ourselves of the importance of the family for our stability.
It sustains humanity, socialising and preparing children for growth and development.
Enjoy your family, today.
All we want to do is keep our children secure.
Threats from organised crime are growing in the UK. So stay safe by downloading my novel, What If I Go? for your new adult family members.
This is the proof
Have a great day!
When the continued climb seems difficult and beyond our own strength…There’s nothing like reading to encourage us to write. At present, I am reading poetry by TS Elliot. What with the snow and cabin fever setting in and all!
That may sound heavy but it fits in with this time of year, really! See or hear ‘The Journey of the Magi’ on Google, to join me. I think it infers that to see beyond we need to keep looking upwards.
When I think I have it not so easy, this poetry is levelling. It works for me.
Also, getting by is easier with a friend up front. So let us hold on tight!
That’s apparently on Monday the 13th of November. If you didn’t know, don’t worry neither did I. What a shame that we have to be reminded to do something as fundamental to our well being as to be kind!
Let’s practise before Monday, shall we? Not because it’s a special day but because we can…
I shared a meal with someone this lunchtime. It was a lamb roast lunch, all but for the Yorkshire puddings, that I forgot. The pudding was pineapple upside down cake and custard (made with fresh pineapple.) I know! It tasted better than it looks, my smiley pud.So much for the diet. I’ll start tomorrow.
What do you recommend as the best way to show kindness? All ideas greatly received.
Big hugs! I could be my centenary day today. ♥ Its a big ask but ask then it shall be given…
Yay! I can’t believe it’s been a year that I’ve been here! If four more folk follow today, then I’ll have a hundred followers. Thanks! Your support makes me happy. What I rely upon is the generosity of my followers to spread the news about my novel. Then, we can empower college & Uni students to stay safe and avoid falling prey to gangs. Or even anyone else heading off for ventures new.
So, to give a heads up to young adults then just direct them to Amazon or even better download a copy of ‘What If I Go?’ for a fresher you know. It could be an essential part of their kit leaving home.
Remember, it’s because they’re worth it. And so are you!

I found this on Pinterest and agree whole heartily with the creator.
I am grateful for your time to help me spread the word on keeping safe. Please encourage summer reading for students. They matter. I wrote What If I Go? as a heads up on the signs of grooming and violent controlling behaviour. Let’s help stop the perpetrators?
This short story mirrors my own, What If I Go? It is suitable for a younger audience if you find my novel too challenging this will more subtly warn young adults onward of the dangers of taking hard drugs.
It also raises awareness of the sensitive topic of sexual exploitation within a short story.
The book is called ‘The Bigger Fish’ by Magdel Roets see
I highly recommend this empowering quick read. Happy Reading!
