The one where I share some tips about hedgehogs

It’s the final day of Hedgehog Awareness Week in the UK and I posted a true or false quiz yesterday. Today, I’m sharing the gorgeous graphics that my publishers, Boldwood Books, pulled together with my hedgehog dos and don’ts.

They’re divided into 3 x categories of food and drink, in your garden, and finding hedgehogs. Hope you find them interesting and perhaps you might be able to do something in your garden over the weekend, if you have one, to help hedgehogs. It’s been very dry lately so even just putting out a shallow dish of water would be amazing.

I’ve really enjoyed researching hedgehogs. The British Hedgehog Preservation Society’s website has been exceptionally helpful and I have a gorgeous book called The Hedgehog Handbook by Sally Coulthard which I picked up in the gift shop at Castle Howard when I went on my Christmas visit with my fabulous author friend, Sharon Booth, last year. It’s available on Amazon and, if you are interested in hogs, I highly recommend it. You can find it here.

IMG_8294Finding Love at Hedgehog Hollow is available for pre-order now – out on 2nd July – and is the first part in a trilogy. The second part (not yet named) is out in January 2021 and I’m writing it as we speak (well, not exactly as we speak as I can’t write a blog post and a novel at exactly the same time but I will be working on it this weekend) and it’s packed full of hedgehogs and I’m learning new things every day.

If you are worried about a hedgehog or find an injured one, you can call The British Hedgehog Preservation Society but make sure you do call them and not leave a Facebook message as it is not regularly checked. There are rescue centres all around the country too so a quick Google should help find yours. Here’s the links to The British Hedgehog Preservation Society if you want to find out more about their work:




And find them on Twitter @HedgehogSociety

Telephone: 01584 890801

And if you’d like to pre-order my book, you can do so on Amazon, Kindle and AppleBooks. Here’s the Amazon link and I’ve pasted the blurb below.

Have a great weekend and stay safe.

Big hugs

Glad to have a distraction from family feuds and match-making, Sam vows to fulfill Thomas and his wife, Gwendoline’s, dreams of restoring Hedgehog Hollow to its former glory, and to open a hedgehog rescue centre.

Throwing herself into the task at hand, little does Sam realise that the keys to love and happiness may also be found at Hedgehog Hollow, when she least expects it…
