When I was a child I was always scribbling away: I’ve still got a huge collection of stories, plays and comics in the attic from that time. Then in my teens I got distracted by exams, boys, and my first job, and eventually the writing tailed off. I had a successful career in architecture and design, and it wasn’t until many years later, when my ten year old daughter complained that she couldn’t find any good books to read, that it occurred to me to take up writing again. I had recently had to give up my job due to health problems, so it seemed the ideal opportunity to fulfil an old ambition. Since then I’ve written many articles on health, nutrition and family history, two books on nutritional therapy, and two children's novels..

So this summer, in preparation for the work ahead, I’ll be rereading children’s classics such as Swallows and Amazons, Phillip Pullman’s Northern Lights, and Tom’s Midnight Garden. Plus, as an Essex author, I look forward to reading Strange Magic, a tale about witches, magic and a centuries old mystery, by Syd Moore, another Essex author.(less)

If only half the stories about Richard and his parents are true, fact is in truth stranger than fiction. If I turned the story into a novel, nobody would believe it!

Finally, it’s over. I’ve completed the degree I started almost twenty five years ago. Why has it taken so long, you may ask? Because half way through, I got side-tracked into becoming a full-time writer, and for a long time that took priority. But when the Open University launched a course in ‘Children’s Literature’, I knew the time hd come to get back into studying. We studied a fascinating mi... Read more of this blog post »

I found this book genuinely unputdownable. It is the first book in a series, and if the subsequent books are half as good, I won’t be disappointed. It is set in a small town in the Australian outback during a two year drought, when livestock and crop ...more
