Geri Halliwell-Horner Releases Young Adult Novel After Seven Years
Geri Halliwell-Horner, former Spice Girls singer, has finally released her young adult novel titled ‘Rosie Frost and the Falcon Queen’ after seven years of hard work. In an interview, Halliwell-Horner compared the release of her book to a pregnancy, expressing both excitement and trepidation. The novel follows the story of Rosie Frost, an orphan who attends a school for extraordinary teens on Bloodstone Island. When the island is threatened, Rosie must participate in her school’s Falcon Queen games to save it.
A Long Time Coming: Halliwell-Horner’s Writing Journey
The book has been a long time coming for Halliwell-Horner, who previously released a children’s book series in 2008. She dedicated hours to writing in her shed, often getting lost in the process. Her husband, Christian Horner, was supportive but eagerly awaited the finished product. Halliwell-Horner’s daughter, Bluebell, also took a similar approach, waiting until the book was complete to read it. Throughout the novel, humor is used to balance serious themes such as grief and climate change.
Incorporating History and Personal Experience
Halliwell-Horner incorporated historical figures like Anne Boleyn into the book, despite being advised against it. She felt that Boleyn had been given a raw deal and could relate to her experience of leaving a child behind. The author also drew from her own experience with grief, using a personal memory of being told about her father’s death as inspiration for the opening chapter. Halliwell-Horner’s passion for words, which she discovered through her studies in English literature and drama, has always been at the heart of her creative endeavors.
