Bury St Edmunds author Julia Blake is on the lookout for a treehouse.

And anyone who has one which can be photographed to be used on the front cover of her new book could be in line for a prize.

She has already written four paperbacks and the latest publication, entitled “Fixtures and Fittings”, is ready to be printed apart from the cover.

“All I need now is someone locally who has a treehouse that I could get photographed,” she said. “And they will win a £25 gift voucher from Marks & Spencer along with a signed copy of the book.”

Her previous compositions include “The Book of Eve” which is set around people who live at Ickworth Park; “Becoming Lili”, set in Bury in the 1990s about the coming of age of an ugly duckling who is bullied at school and unloved at home; “Elairs For Tea and Other Stories”, a collection of short stories and poems; and “Lost and Found”, a fast-paced romantic suspence story.
