CERI WORMAN is leading a double life - just like the character in her first novel.
Ceri, from Penistone, is a children's librarian by day, but has a second career as a writer.
She was children's librarian at Huddersfield Public Library until several weeks ago.
She has now transferred to Barnsley, but returned to Huddersfield on Thursday to launch her first book, The Secret Life of Jamie B: Superspy.
Jamie B is a 12-year-old who thinks he's James Bond and is based partly on Ceri's son, Marcus, also 12.
In his head, he is a secret agent on risky and exciting missions, far removed from his summer job - cleaning cars.
The comedy tale is one of three Ceri has planned for Jamie B.
In the second he will be a rap star and in the third a superhero.
At Huddersfield Library, Ceri read passages from the book with the help of some children.
Her young audience - which filled the children's library - listened in rapt attention.
They then got chance to play games and design their own Bond-style gadgets.
Many also asked Ceri to sign copies of her book.
She said becoming a writer was a dream come true. She said: "I've always wanted to be a writer. The idea for this book came to me after I was inspired by watching James Bond films.
"In a way we all lead double lives.
"As a child I read and that is a way of leading a double life."
Ceri read some of Ian Fleming's Bond novels in preparation, but decided the women were getting a raw deal.
She said: "I've decided to inject a bit of girl power."
* The book is suitable for children aged seven and over. It costs £4.99.
