This then leads to Jacob wanting to follow in his footsteps in seeking a similar career in the army. This book is published in aid of 'Care After Combat.' Some Veterans Are Still Fighting ... For Their Lives http: // In addition to 100% of both author and artist's royalties, $0.25 from every e-book version sold, and $1 from every PRINT copy sold, will go to Care After Combat.

Author Biography

Rosita is married with two children. She has worked as a legal secretary, a childminder, nursery assistant, and as an accommodation provider for fostered teenagers. She attributes former health problems to not eating properly as a child, thus many of her books are aimed at encouraging healthy eating and have received positive feedback from Jamie Oliver's team. In addition several of them raise money for various charities. Lynn Costelloe is a retired teacher and lives in Sheffield, where she divides her time between caring for her two grandchildren and writing and illustrating books for children, which include several by Rosita Bird. Simon Weston C.B.E. is a Falkland's War Veteran, author, public speaker & charity supporter. In 1982 he was aboard the Sir Galahad when it was destroyed at Bluff Cove in the Falklands Islands. He suffered 46% burns to his body and went on to have numerous operations. He is a much-loved public figure, actively working for many charities. Simon is trustee of the charity Care After Combat, and kindly provided the foreword for the book My Great Grandad was a Soldier, by Rosita Bird. This book forms part of the Crimson Cares range of books: royalties from this book benefit Care After Combat.
