The Seeker of Lost Things
By Ruth Hogan
Tilbury Bean (Tilly for short) was my enthusiastic assistant when I was out gathering lost things. Tilly was particularly adept at finding tennis balls. She would scour the undergrowth in the park and very rarely return without one in her mouth. The only problem was, that she would also search for tennis balls on the tennis courts. During tennis matches. Tilly sadly died before I got my first publishing deal for KEEPER, but when I did, and set my own company, I named it after her – Tilbury Bean Books.
