Sally Mills Island to Island Book Signing & Meet the Author: Colwyn Bay

Aug 19, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Island to Island – From Somerset to Seychelles: New book shares the highs
and lows of managing a nature reserve in paradise

Sally Mills and partner, Melvyn, swap their life in Somerset and embark on an adventure of a lifetime
managing a nature reserve on a remote island in the Seychelles. Living amongst a million seabirds
and some of the rarest wildlife in the world for twenty months, Island to Island is their story.

The author says:
“Whilst my illustrated novel portrays the drama and life changing experiences of living by nature in a tropical
paradise – with a limited food supply and no modern conveniences, it also explores the highs, lows, and
dynamics of such a rare ecological ecosystem. It reveals how influential external factors can be in such an
environment; from natural phenomena to the consequences of human actions, together with the dangerous
unforeseen cocktails that can be produced when the two are combined. Island to Island is a rare insight into
the impacts that people can have on the natural environment, and the key role that we as a species play in the
conservation of these delicate, precious and very beautiful communities that I feel so privileged to have
witnessed first-hand.
The novel is dedicated to my father, who believed in me, encouraged me, and enabled me to flourish. After all,
as his daughter, I was in his eyes a bobby-dazzler. As an expression of humble recognition and gratitude, the
funds raised through sales will be donated to St Kentigern’s Hospice, who I can never thank enough for the
sensitive and compassionate care they gave him.”

Join Sally at the launch of her book signing and meet the author at Colwyn Bay Library 3pm-5pm

Sally Mills will make a contribution to St Kentigern Hospice for every book sold
