Amy created a lovely tale for the competition in 2015 called ‘The Mermaid Kingdom’, which is a short story about a mermaid and a sea monster, earning the chance for her work to be published in paperback.

Amy joined The Birkenhead School after she moved from St Ives in Cornwall and has thrived ever since, enjoying subjects such as Maths and English. She is also a librarian for the school helping other students to enjoy reading.  

Amy said: “I love writing, it is my way of escaping and submerging myself into another world. My favourite subject at school is English and I want to write novels when I am older.”

Head of Year 7, Mrs Kirwan, said: “This is a lovely achievement for Amy and one we are glad she has shared with us.”
