The Gravespeakers Series: For 8-12 year olds

The Gravespeakers Book series

I have two children. From the moment they were born, I made up stories for them when they went to bed at night.

When they were very young they paid no attention to me at all, but as they grew a little older, they started to listen.

“You should make your story into a book,” my oldest son said one day.  It was my turn to listen.

100 days later I published The Dark Green Book of Dreams.

Then I began to work on the Gravespeakers’ series, a set of six books for children between 8 and 12 years of age.

I write 3 books a year so you won’t have to wait too long for the next one to come along.

I absolutely LOVE visiting schools to do book readings from the Gravespeakers series or creative writing workshops.  So if you’d like me to visit your school, ask your teacher to get in touch!
