Legend of The Lighthouse Moon, by Helen Edwards

Cape Willoughby Lighthouse

I’m very excited to announce the title for my next middle-grade novel – Legend of the Lighthouse Moon!

I absolutely love this story about 13-year-old Mona McKenna, a girl living in 1970 with type 1 diabetes in an island lighthouse, featuring the stunning backdrop of Kangaroo Island and the gorgeous and endangered sea lions, as well as drawing on the true history of Cape Willoughby Lighthouse.

As usual, I’m weaving nature, plenty of magic, and true history to create a very special and diverse story that’s full of heart and wonder, inspired by my grandmothers who were both born on islands in the UK, the legends from these regions and my life growing up with type 1 diabetes.

Coming 2nd October 2024 with the fabulous Riveted Press!

Cover reveal, blurb, pre-order details, and more, coming soon!! Stay tuned across social media and sign up to the newsletter to keep up to date with everything over coming months.

I’m so excited to share this very personal story.

xx Helen
