OUT NOW ON KINDLE AND IN PAPERBACK: The Shadow of the Tudor Rose.


In 1588,  Elizabeth the First faces the greatest challenge of her reign. A plot to invade England and overthrow the Queen has been hatched by her bitterest enemies, the Spanish.

Arriving in Elizabethan London, my young time-travellers overhear a conversation that leads them into a web of conspiracy. Can they solve the mystery of the Tudor Rose?

Don't worry, that's not the end of the series - there are still plenty more adventures to come. Where will it all end? Will the twins ever find their parents? And will Uncle Richard finally believe what the children have been telling him? Keep reading to find out what happens ...







Max has just had a very strange experience. Was it real or was it all a dream? I'll leave that up to you to decide when you read Max's latest solo adventure. Look out for Max's Undercover Adventure which is available on Kindle and also in paperback...

Following on from The Shadow of the Tudor Rose, the 10th and 11th books in the series will be The Shadow of the Witchfinder and The Shadow of the Shifting Sands.



The county of Essex was a perilous place to be in the mid-seventeenth century, thanks to the existence of a certain Matthew Hopkins, otherwise known as the “Witchfinder General”.

The Lancelot twins, their talking cat Max, and friend Charlie, are about to find out just how perilous. Having travelled back in time once again, still on the trail of the twins’ missing parents, the children are in great danger, especially when Jemima is overheard conversing with Max. Suspected of sorcery, it’s only a matter of time before they fall into the hands of … the Witchfinder.




Miles and miles of nothing but sand; huge dunes like golden mountains stretch as far as the eye can see, and a heat haze shimmers beneath the punishing glare of the desert sun. This is the sight that greets four young travellers from the future when they arrive in the heart of the Rub’ Al Khali desert.

But what has brought them to this inhospitable environment? Only Max the talking Tonkinese cat can answer this, for he has been here before…





And, of course, Max will continue to have the occasional solo mini-adventure. Watch out for his next short story, Max's Hallowe'en Adventure...


("Oh no," groans Max. "That sounds far too scary. Do I really have to? Couldn't you write something else, like Max goes on a nice, relaxing holiday?")


Oops, perhaps I shouldn't have mentioned it in front of him!
