The bit about Kirsty-Louise Garbutt
Perfect Reasons Publications' Award-Winning Author Kirsty-Louise Garbutt found her passion for writing when she was eight years old. Her debut Children's book, Santa's Lost Buttons, with a real wooden button from Santa's workshop, was released in November 2021, making Kirsty a published Author at 46.
Taking almost 40 years to become published, Kirsty had this to say; “Never give up on your dreams, they will come true if you just believe in yourself. Remove any roadblocks tampering with your progress and simply go for it!”
Born and raised in the spectacular city of Kingston upon Hull, Kirsty is proud to call herself a Hullensian despite, at 8 years old, moving from the city to Withernsea, a seaside town on the east coast of England, some 18 miles from Hull.
Kirsty’s childhood, growing up with the beach outside her window and having two older brothers and a foster sister to play with, provided a plethora of material for Kirsty to create exciting stories even then. The memories she gathered from her childhood antics and adventures are what inspire Kirsty. The experiences she had, and the people she met are what she draws upon when creating imaginary worlds and characters for her young readers today.
Kirsty now resides in the beautiful village of Keyingham to the east of the city of Hull where she enjoys the country walks right on her doorstep, swimming, and writing. Kirsty giggles with tongue in cheek when adding to her pastimes “and patiently await being promoted to Grandma”. Known as Mama Bear to her grown-up children Nathaniel and Imogen, Kirsty was delighted to welcome Megan to the family when Nathaniel married Megan in August 2021. Kirsty beams with pride when talking of her daughter Imogen being the first to go to university and looks forward to her graduation. Kirsty is very close to her Mum Lesley who claims to be her best friend and with whom she adores and spends most of her time with.
The success Kirsty has experienced to date she credits to her family, friends, and community. Smiling Kirsty had this to say; "Their strength and support have simply been breathtaking. The success of Santa's Lost Buttons picture book is because of them".
With two new titles, Hullabazoodle and the first in the ELF.B.I Series, planned for release in 2022, Kirsty looks forward to a bright and happy future in writing exciting stories for children.
