Killer Ducks

Killer Ducks (2001) Post 282

Killer Ducks
Killer Ducks is a school story about Jenna, who has moved into a new school and who is still finding her feet. Red Reading Group is putting on a poetry festival, and Jenna will have her photo taken with the others for the newspaper... but on the day, she's running late. The only way to get there is to cross the park and it's full of killer ducks.
Killer Ducks is based lightly on something that happened when a flock of ducks chased my daughter and her friend. The ducks were observed eating a barbecue chicken... not quite cannibal, but not the behaviour of nice ducks, either!


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service.
