A Co Armagh woman fulfilled a dream during lockdown when she poured her passion for rock climbing into what she hopes will be a bestselling children's book.

I Want To Climb Like The Animals Do, by I Want To Climb Like The Animals Do, by Ciera Clayton, has been carefully crafted to give a realistic insight into the joys of climbing in the hope that young children - especially girls - will take it up as a hobby.

The Portadown woman, who works as a project manager for a pharmaceutical company, spent 60 hours a week on top of her 40-hour working week researching and writing her book during the first lockdown last year.
