Reading Force July 2021 book of the Month

Home: Quote

Stacie Wildney grew up in a small beach town in Essex. She met her husband Stan in 2007 just a few months before he enlisted in the army. They married in 2009 and had their first daughter Poppie in 2011. Stacie’s husband's work has moved them to 6 different towns so far and counting. Stan has been on numerous tours and in between that exercises, that can see him away for just a week to a couple of months.

They had their second daughter Isla in 2019. It wasn’t until after Isla’s first birthday, that Stacie had the idea to write a story for Isla. Stacie’s husband was getting ready to go away for a short period of time, but due to COVID 19 he had barely been away in almost a year. Stacie was wondering how her youngest would deal with her daddy suddenly not being around every day, she wanted a way to explain to her that some daddies work away and it’s ok that you will miss them but also to provide her with reassurance comfort. 

Stacie has always loved reading to her daughters especially the stories that rhyme. 

This is where she had the idea for Macky Monster's Daddy Works Away, she wanted to create a lovable friendly monster that would share in her daughter's experience and give her character in a book whom she could relate to. Stacie soon realised her story could be beneficial for many other children that may experience missing their daddies when they have to work away for a period of time. 

This had led to other ideas for Macky Monster adventures to support children with other big emotions and experiences they may have such as starting school.

Stacie hopes you enjoy reading these stories as much as she loves creating them and looks forward to sharing more with you.
