Witchy Travel Tales

Listen again:

It was a pleasure to be back in the Feelgood Saturday chair this week while Naomi was away and in particular to chat with my guest, a children’s author from Billericay.

Sibel Beadle started writing her series of “Witchy Travel Tales” when she was getting divorced and she explained how the first story came about when her children went away with their Dad on holiday for the first time. Desperate for a good-night story, each night Sibel texted them paragraphs of an imaginary story which they loved so much that she later compiled the various messages into her first book.

Since then she’s explored many beautiful locations in the World and has written stories about places she’s visited every time her kids went away with their Dad, and she told me how she uses her writing not only to inspire children to want visit these magical places for themselves but also to help them deal with real problems they face in today’s world – without losing a sense of magic!

About Alan Johnson

My radio career began in the late 90s when I ran a number of trial stations in my then home town around the same time Phoenix was doing similar things in Brentwood and Billericay. I joined Phoenix in May 2010 and presented Feelgood Saturday for seven years, also supporting the running of the station for a time as a director. Since stepping aside from regular presenting I've been covering presenters and broadcasting one-off specials, including a show based on my fascination with music samples - I'm a big dance music fan.
