LORRAINE ELLIS is a local author from Paull. The Hedon Blog is delighted to announce that her autobiography, Mini Hen Legs & Ladybird Ladybird Fly away Home, has been published as a paperback by Chipmunkapublishing.
The book recounts the author’s struggle against a terrifying mental illness that afflicted her as a child and an adult.
Lorraine told us: “The book is split up into two parts the first story: Mini Hen Legs concentrates on my childhood to adolesence. Ladybird Ladybird Fly away home focuses on my adulthood and my battle with bi polar.”
Specialist publisher Chipmunkapublishing has this to say about the book:
“It tells of an experience she endured at the age of five and how this experience shadowed her growing years thus leading her into confusion and insecurity. At the tender age of fifteen Lorraine began to hear voices in her head and became paranoid and delusional. It is a vivid account of those years giving a true insight into how it feels to suffer with serious mental health problems…
Lorraine is an inspiration to all who come across her… Lorraine represents a remarkable example of a recovery journey for someone experiencing severe mental illness”
The publication of the book is fantastic news for our very own local writer. It is Lorraine’s second book to be published! As Blog regulars will know, Lorraine’s first book Pease Pudding Hot was published as an e-book in 2009 and in print in 2010.
The new book is available to order from Chipmunkapublishing, W.H Smiths and will soon be in stock in Waterstones on Jameson Street in Hull.
