A Norfolk-based author has written a children's book to support a bereavement charity.

Jamie Payne's creation, Big Feelings, aims to help youngsters deal with overwhelming emotions like anger.

The book centres around Payne's character, Biggle-Dink, and was developed in collaboration with Nelson’s Journey.

Jamie said: “Readers of my books will know that Biggle-Dink sometimes struggles with tricky feelings and emotions, so creating a custom book in this area seemed a logical fit.

"In the book, Biggle-Dink experiences a few different emotions but it focuses on how they deal with anger."

The author initially aimed to raise £100 from the book project, but thanks to sponsorship from local businesses, 750 copies will be printed and sold with hopes of raising more than £3,000.

Jamie discussed his collaboration with the charity and said: “I am so honoured that Nelson's Journey allowed me to work on this book on their behalf - it is a project I will never forget.”

Becky Bushell, funding and marketing officer from Nelson’s Journey, said: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to collaborate with Jamie on this unique project.

"It’s been wonderful watching how Biggle-Dink explores these different emotions and learns how to grapple with feelings of anger.

"The book reflects the range of emotions that children go through and offers a helpful guide for them to understand their feelings better and help them deal with their anger in a healthy manner."

Jamie will be signing copies at Roys of Wroxham on Thursday, May 30 from 11am and at the Cromer Pier 60s event on Saturday, June 8.

All profits from the book will be donated to Nelson’s Journey to support their work with bereaved children.
