Michael Firman.jpg

Michael lives in rural Sussex with his wife. His story telling started when his eldest grandchild was old enough to appreciate a bedtime tale. Rather than read to her he began to craft stories about the trees, plants and animals that live in his garden. As time passed and a second grandchild also enjoyed these tales of adventure and daring, the stories began to create a whole world that lived and went about its business right in his garden.

His grand kids, Poppy and Rudi continue to enjoy further developments in the lives of the characters that populate these stories and Tommy Twigtree and The Carrot Crunchers is the first in a series charming garden tales.

mini obc about the author

Rebeeca Palliser.jpg

Rebecca Palliser is a young primary school teacher whose experiences in the classroom inspired her to write to have an influence on her pupils. 

She is about to embark on a Masters programme where she hopes to continue to write alongside her studies. 

She takes inspiration for her stories from her travels exploring different cultures and cities, spending time with her little dog Darcy and of course her biggest muse, the delightful pupils she is fortunate to teach.

A sweet book about the stationary in your classroom not wanting to be bashed, broken and lost.

I read this to my little one on my Kindle. She liked the cover and the pictures inside the book, however the writing is pretty small and the font isn’t child friendly (even I had to look closely) but not sure if that’s just because it’s a kindle version or if the paper book is the same.

She enjoyed the book and looking at the pictures. We talked about why we don’t break the things in the classroom and what happens when we do, she said her friends would be sad if they couldn’t colour or if the glue was dry they couldn’t do any sticking, she got the gist of the story.

Eternal Seas -Cover Reveal.png

mini obc about the book1

Such a small parcel shouldn’t cause experienced smugglers much trouble, but this parcel is far from normal. Lost and scared after a violent storm, Finn and his sister, Aria, take shelter on a remote island. They discover the parcel contains a relic belonging to a long forgotten people. Locked inside are powers which will change their lives, and the world, forever. As Finn realises his connection to the relic, a vision strikes him – but what does it mean? Who should they trust? And if they decide to follow their hearts rather than their orders, will they manage to deliver the relic in one piece? Chased across the seas as they try to solve the mysteries within the parcel, the fate of this ancient people depends on them. Finn and Aria must choose between what is right and what is easy – and time is running out … With brave protagonists and life lessons of courage and honour, Eternal Seas speaks from a `flawed’ character perspective that everyone can relate to. Young readers who enjoy daring plots and exciting adventures will delight in this original story of different races and tough choices.

mini obc about the author

Lorraine-16.jpg

Lexi Rees spends as much time as possible sailing and horse riding, both of which she does spectacularly badly. Attempts at writing whilst horse riding have been disastrous, so Eternal Seas was written on a boat; the storm described in the book was frighteningly real.
