Author Information


Born in sunny Birmingham in the late 80's I always wanted to write as a child, so as I grew and explored my love of working with animals and people I used all these experiences to create my first story and from there I was hooked! My Children and my animals are my main source of inspiration always giving me new ideas and stories to write. I studied as a Youth Worker and i'm also a qualified early years practitioner as well has having lots of random qualifications including in animals and sports ;) My first book ever published is called Sox and Pals and is about my Raccoon Socrates, a very special raccoon that helps educate people all about animals and how to care for animals properly

My Thoughts:

The Plot: What a great story! I really enjoyed the adventure and the comraderie of our main characters. It was a fun read that I am sure young readers will enjoy very much. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next.
The Characters: All of our characters were amazing. Our three main characters were interesting and worked well together, even with their separate issues. They each worked hard to overcome things that would be difficult for anyone and supported each other throught those problems, even when they didn't know what was going on.
Was It Worth Reading?: Yes!! While this book is clearly meant for a younger audience, I completely enjoyed every thing about it. I realized as I was reading that 2 out of 3 of my monsters would totally love this book. I recommend The Curse of the Nomed to young readers of adventure and give it 5 ot of 5 crossbows.

My Thought:

The Plot: Holy Intensity! I really enjoyed The Devil's Poetry and I was a little nervous going into the sequel, cause you know, sequels suck. But On Holy Ground took us to a whole new level of.....everything. More mystery and intrique and a better understanding of our Cadevari bad guys.  The story moved along very quickly, with twists and turns and bumps in the path that had my heart pounding.

The Characters: Callie is once again an amazing lead role. Putting myself in her position, I would have fallen apart. Miles is one of those characters that I was never sure if Callie could trust, but he was still a great character. I will let you come to your own conclusion on whether Miles is a good guy or not.  Amber really comes into  play this book as the kick ass heroine, a rock solid friend for our girl to lean on.  All of our characters, whether friend or foe, or even unknown, where very well writen and I enjoyed them all.

Was It Worth Reading?: Definitely! As far as sequels go, On Holy Ground is one of the best! I really enjoyed the cat and mouse game Callie played with the Order. I totally recommend both books and give On Holy Ground 5 out of 5 crossbows.
