FENELLA MINELLA


Six magical stories about a small girl to whom voiceless objects and creatures speak: a suit of armour, a snowgirl, a mean painting made by her best friend. Even her yet-to-be-born baby brother talks to her.

HERO 41: EYE OF THE GARGOYLE

HERO 41: THE PEOPLE IN THE WALL


Dax Daley is an ordinary boy sent to a special school where kids with a very rare gene are encouraged to develop the super power they didn't know they had till now. Dax's power turns out to be more powerful than anyone else's - and he really wishes he didn't have it.


Published in the UK, but I hold the US book and film rights for these two.

CLICK THE COVERS

Four adventures, unrelated other than by the word 'Young' in the titles.

YOUNG DRACULA inspired five BBC TV series of the same name.


All four of these are still published in the UK and other territories by Barrington Stoke of Edinburgh,

but I hold the US text rights to them.




THE GRIFFIN AND OLIVER PIE


The story of a small boy who finds a large stone griffin in his overgrown back garden. A griffin with a life of its own, a bad temper, and a little magic.

THE BOOK OF JACKS


Eight original stories with more than a dash of humour about boys and young men called Jack. Although previously published in four slim volumes, each called A Pair of Jacks, I have now repositioned the stories to appear as originally intended, as a single volume. So far, I have had just one copy printed, for myself.

A one-off story for World Book Day


Jiggy should have known that a school trip to a natural history museum with class dumbo Eejit Atkins wouldn't be a normal sort of day. But when he and Atkins step into one of the exhibits and find themselves in a real cave with real cavemen, things start to get seriously weird.
