The late Eugenie Summerfield began her writing career creating stories for BBC Radio Four’s children’s programmes. These included the national favourites, Listen With Mother, Let’s Join In and Listening Corner. More than 100 of her stories were broadcasted on these programmes, and it was on Listen With Mother that Wriggly Worm made his first appearance, winning the hearts of listeners, young and old. Over a number of years, Eugenie also wrote for Yorkshire TV’s programme My World, as well as a number of children’s books, including Nelson’s Story Chest series – and of course the published collections of the Wonderful Wriggly Worm stories: Wonderful Wriggly Worm and Wonderful Wriggly Worm Rides Again.
Eugenie died in February 2016, in Gloucestershire. Her funeral service was held at Gloucester Cathedral and her obituary appeared in The Guardian Newspaper-www.theguardian.com/books/2016/apr/28/eugenie-summerfield-obituary
