About the Author

As a child I was a reluctant reader.  I didn't see it as reluctance, I just didn't see the point:  there were comics and a picture is worth a thousand words right?

I am now an avid reader and regret missing out on so many good stories as a child.  Fortunately, with children of my own, I'm now managing to catch up, reading stories to them every night before bed.

There isn't anything quite like a good book to let you escape from the world for a while.  True, films are great, but they don't engage you as much as a book.  A well written book will get your imagination working, filling the story with colour and energy: a film is a depiction of somebody else's imagination.

In fact, I enjoy reading stories to my children so much, I started to write my own.  And bearing in mind my own reluctance to read as a child I have written them to be as engaging as possible, to draw the reluctant reader into a land of imagination and discovery.
