About This Author

I dreamt of being a writer from when I first picked up something that would leave a legible mark on the page. Expressing myself through writing stories, poetry and plays has always been something that I felt compelled to do. An avid reader, particularly of fantasy novels from the likes of JRR Tolkein, CS Lewis, Terry Brooks, Terry Pratchett and Robert Rankin amongst a host of others, plus a love of all things mythological and magical, I knew that one day I would write a children’s fantasy story. Like most authors, even those writing of imaginary worlds, I called upon my own life experiences and the traits and personalities of loved ones (and not so loved ones!) to create a whole new existence. And so, The Long Ears Legacy was born. The Harp of Elvyth became the first book in the series and it follows the adventures of a young girl, Lizzie Longton, as she makes her way through two quite different parallel worlds. One with all the everyday realities of living in the human world and the other filled with magic and mystery. Book two, The Dragon Flyers and book three, The Light Knights continue Lizzie’s story and I am currently working on the final book in the series. I'm proud to say that the books have received fantastic reviews and feedback from readers from all over this planet, from the UK and Europe to the US and Canada and from Australia to Asia. A born and bred Londoner, I currently live in Lincolnshire England with my family (who might recognise bits of themselves in the books) and our two dogs Wally and Luna. So, my message to all you prospective writers out there is, go for it! Follow your dreams and they will come true, one way or another. Don’t forget, in the words of that old adage - “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”
