Description - The Disappearing Sister by Elizabeth Cummings
What do you do when someone you care about is hurting, when their behaviour is making it worse? How can you help them if you are the youngest and no-one is listening? This book tackles the tough topic of eating disorders and how a family has to work together to help the big sister get better. Eva loves her big sister very much. Anna is clever, smart and fun. But one day Eva notices that her sister is staring to behave differently and that she seems unwell. Eva wants to help but doesn't know what to do. So she confides in her friend Jennie who helps her find a way to help her sister. A moving, yet hopeful, account of a family working together to help a loved one recover their health.
Formally a primary school teacher from UK, I now live in Sydney writing for children and adults alike. My works often take a child's perspective to explain the world and to reflect on important life experiences. My poetry is aimed at general audiences and as well as working on some collaborative ventures and YA projects.
I am currently developing two distinct picture book series. Firstly, 'The Elephant in the Room Series' providing a "way into" conversations with young children about difficult subjects matter dealing with family and mental health. Secondly, a series of books about characters in a fictional town I have created called 'Verityville'. The daily lives of these characters are often based on real events and people I have met through my life.
I am also working on three poetry collections; A Beach For All Seasons (Coogee inspired poetry), Requiem (Words of Remembrance For Those Who Have Touched Our Lives) and Untitled, The Spectrum of Our Minds (Poetry on Mental Health).
My work with 'Elephant in the Room' has lead to presenting at an international storytelling conference at Mansfield College in Oxford UK and a distribution contract with Dennis Jones & Associates. I have published four books to date and won last year's SCWC Writer's prize for a poem about gender and identity. Find out more about my work on website: elizabethmarycummings.com
