Young author's dying wish comes true
A young Westcountry author's last wish to have her first novel published has come true - two years after she died from a brain tumour.
Talented Felicity Begley, 23, was diagnosed with an inoperable tumour as she wrote a series of books.
She died in November 2011 without seeing any of her work make it into print but parents Keith, 57, and Aileen, 54, have continued to look for a publisher.
The proud couple's efforts were rewarded when a publishing companies wrote back saying they loved Felicity's writing and wanted to publish three books.

Her first posthumous novel 'Fun with Tilly', inspired by childhood memories of her pet Dalmatian, will be published by Unite PC.
Aileen, of Torquay, Devon, said: "Felicity would have been so pleased. She tried ever so hard to get them published while she was still with us and she set us some work to do.
"Looking through her manuscripts was very moving because she had based it on her own experiences.
"She loved children and loved her art and when she set out writing we said 'go for it'.
"Sadly, it was after she started writing her first few that she became unwell. We are so pleased to have been able to fulfil her wishes."
