The Wrath of Siren Summary
Elderfield accepts a Gateway into another realm in a desperate bid to protect the human child, Charlotte, from the Dark Druid. He soon discovers what a massive burden this has placed on him. His good intentions go horribly wrong, threatening the destruction of all his people and condemning, Charlotte, the Truth Teller, to a life she can never escape.

Charlotte returns to an unfamiliar world ravished by a spreading evil. Forced to seek help from a dubious dwarf thief,  she is captured and taken to Siren's underground kingdom. When she is faced with the Dark Druid himself, the true horror of events is unveiled.

A final battle at a mountain fortress is the last stand against an unstoppable evil. The key to their survival rests on a ten-year-old girl and an ancient folklore legend.

Truth Teller Summary
How could a modern day girl like Charlotte ever envisage that magic really exists? Even with her own vivid imagination, the place for other realms belonged in a child’s fairy tale. Or so she thought, until she stumbled across a hidden curio shop and an even stranger shopkeeper. He gives her a gift that resembles an antique snow dome, but this is not an ordinary globe. The world Charlotte has always known disappears as she’s spirited away into a mystical land.

This is the beginning of a lifelong friendship that changes Charlotte’s life forever. Discovered by a young elf alone in the forest, she embarks on a journey in search of a group of travelling Entertainers. She encounters heart-stopping dangers and real life monsters, but a far greater threat shadows her every move. Even the strength and skill of her new found companions cannot protect her against a ruthless druid assassin. But in this realm, Charlotte is not the vulnerable little girl she thought she was.

Author Bio
I live in the UK in the leafy county of Hertfordshire, have done all my life. I’m married with three children and three grandchildren at the tender age of forty-four. I’ve known my wife since we went to infant school. We used to walk home together at about the age of eight and have been together as a couple for over twenty-eight years. It’s the ultimate childhood romance story. My wife is and always has been my best friend, and the one person in the world I trust the most. Aww, I hear you say, and I guess you’re right. Life is hard, and having a life-long friend to share it with does make it much easier.

I’m a young granddad, which is great fun. I absolutely adore children. So much so that I worked as a volunteer for about six years helping to run the Stevenage 17th Brownie pack. I’m still a member of the Girl Guiding Association, though not an active member at the moment, which is a real shame. Kids are cool. They can teach us adults so much if only we would take the time to listen to them.

Working with children is what inspired me to start writing in the first place. Kids' books obviously. I haven’t always been a writer. I spent most of my life working in the building trade as a carpenter. I actually wrote most of my first fantasy series, Truth Teller, whilst at work at the side of the road in a builder’s van. It was the only place I could get peace and quiet from my crazy household. And believe me, my house is a crazy place to live.
