About the author (2012)

This book is written with an audience of children aged 8 years and upwards, and teenagers, in mind. As a parent, and grandparent, I have knowledge of the type of story children enjoy.. After College, and University, there followed a period of studying English with a view to teaching. Nowadays, writing is for pure enjoyment, rhyming being the ultimate challenge. I live on the North coast of Cornwall, with an amazing backdrop of ocean views, an ideal environment in which to write.
