Through Time To London by Brindy Wilcox
What started as a normal day for Brandy & Brinkley changed beyond anything they dreamed of when Jed visited. The two spaniels were used to having little adventures every time they left the house, but nothing prepared them for that morning.
1665 London was a dangerous place for dogs, so when the two brothers found themselves suddenly in the middle of the plague-ridden city it was a race against time to escape the clutches of the street dogs, the perils of the rats and the dangers of the dogcatchers.
Would they be able to survive in their new surroundings and would they be able to find their way back to the safety of their own home?
Through Time to London is the first in a series that follows the adventures of Brandy and Brinkley, two time-travelling Cavalier Spaniels, who are met with new challenges in their search for the way home.
About the Author
I am not an author who has a desk drawer full of manuscripts that never got finished, I don’t have notebooks full of plots and characters. I am an author that had a dream. Almost 30 years ago I saw a book display in WH Smiths and thought how great it would be to have a book on a shelf in a shop – but people like me weren’t writers, I worked in an office. I didn’t know anyone could write a book, no-one told me that anyone could write.
I thought authors were special people. Then I got Brandy & Brinkley, two wonderful Cavalier Spaniels. Every day was like an adventure to them and so a glimmer of an idea was born. I wrote blog posts about their life, I told stories about them and my thoughts went back to the dream of writing a book.
I thought it would be fun to take the dogs back to meet King Charles, who the King Charles Spaniel was named after, and so a time-travel adventure story was born.
