About the author:
I live in the UK in the county of Hertfordshire, have done all my life. I'm married with three children and three grandchildren. I've known my wife since we went to infant school. We used to walk home together at about the age of eight and have been together as a couple for over twenty eight years. It's the ultimate childhood romance story. My wife is, and always has been my best friend, and the one person in the world I trust the most. Aww, I hear you say, and I guess you're right. Life is hard, and having a life-long friend to share it with does make it much easier.
I'm a young granddad, which is great fun. I absolutely adore children. So much so, that I worked as a volunteer for about six years helping to run the Stevenage 17th Brownie pack. I'm still a member of the Girl Guiding Association, though not an active member at any more. Kids are cool. They can teach us adults so much if only we would take the time to listen to them.
Working with children is what inspired me to start writing in the first place. Kids books obviously. I haven't always been a writer. I spent most of my life working in the building trade as a carpenter. I actually wrote most of my first fantasy series, Truth Teller, whilst at work at the side of the road in a builder's van. It was the only place I could get piece and quiet from my crazy household. And believe me, my house is a crazy place to live.
How can ten-year-old Charlotte ever envisage that magic really exists? The place for other realms belongs in a child?s fairy tale. Or so she thinks, until she discovers the strange shopkeeper and begins an adventure that changes her life forever.
Discovered alone in a far away forest, Charlotte embarks on a journey encountering heart-stopping dangers and real life monsters, but a far greater threat shadows her every move. Even the strength and skill of her new companions cannot protect her against a ruthless druid assassin.
But in this realm, Charlotte is not the vulnerable little girl she thought she was.
