My Current Projects

The series continues - 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 next...

I've just completed the 17th book in the series, The Shadow of the Great Fire.

Watch out for news of publication dates...

 

 

In 1666, as London recovers from a deadly plague, the old medieval city with its narrow streets has become a tinderbox. After a long, hot summer,  a small spark is all it takes for the whole place to go up in flames – but is this a simple accident or a deliberate act of sabotage?

 

Towards the end of August, days before the Great Fire is due to break out, three time-travelling children and their talking cat land on the doorstep of one of the most famous figures of the 17th century. Can they discover why they’ve been sent there before it’s too late? Time is running out…

This story will be followed by The Shadow of the Slave Ship

 

 

 

Newly arrived in the bustling port of Bristol on a ship from the Caribbean, a young boy has fled his master and is desperate to avoid recapture. A stranger to these shores, he has no idea where to go and with the colour of his skin making it hard for him to hide, the runaway slave is almost at his wits' end when he bumps into three other children who have also just arrived in the city. Travellers of a different kind, the trio have not journeyed from another country, but from the future... and they will do all they can to save their new friend.

The Shadow of the Shifting Sands will come next

 

 

 

Miles and miles of nothing but sand; massive 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, otherwise known as the Empty Quarter.

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

Where will their quest take my young time-travellers next? One thing is for sure - each journey into the past is taking them a step closer to finding what they seek...
