A Fylde wordsmith is hoping a kind-hearted Express reader can help her realise a dream by publishing her poetry collection.

Sharon Wadsley has tried for years to get her book, Life Lines – A Lyrical Laugh at Life, produced by a major publishing house, but all her attempts have been overlooked.

The 48-year-old, who lives in Bleasdale Road, Lytham said: “I have written for years and years.

“But it is so difficult to get published. I’ve sent manuscripts but they’ve been returned without even being looked at. I’ve even self-published some copies, but no-one has responded.”

Sharon, who grew up in Bispham and moved to Lytham with husband Roy, added: “I’ve tried everything now and I hope someone can help.

“These books are great. They are quite unique and I believe they will bring a smile to the faces of readers, but as yet I’ve had no joy with it being published.”
