Fantasy  stories for CHILDREN

WITH wonderful creatures and characters you’ll want to meet!

welcome, I’M SHALBEY!



Jack in the Wallows – my debut book – is a little like The Faraway Magic Tree by Enid Blyton, The Chronicles of Narnia by C S Lewis and Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkein.

Get it now on –  or 

Twelve year old Jack and his cousin Katie are snatched by Hero, a grumpy leprechaun, and whisked off to a mysterious world brimming with unique and wonderful creatures. But not all is as it seems.  There is a deadly menace; the land has been overrun by fierce Gangrals, and Jack and Katie are expected to get rid of them. If they don’t their own world could be in danger too.

Although the queen and her subjects have magic aplenty, magic alone cannot solve the problem. Now, as the kingdom’s last hope, Jack and Katie are expected to fight the invaders and outwit a dangerous traitor with a deep-seated grudge against the queen.

“What a wonderful imagination this author has. Extremely well-written, the story flows and takes the reader with it, accompanying Jack, who is struggling with his parents splitting up, and his brave cousin Katie, into a magical world full of fascinating creatures. Many times their lives are in danger and the whole storyline is gripping. There is also a message here about conserving the environment. Highly recommended.”  Minskip
