Accidental Hero

Rated 4.00/5 based on 2 reviews
No one could have imagined George Ainslie a hero. Heroes are majestic, sublime. They look like Christopher Reeve. George is so bland his own mother wouldn't pick him in a police line-up. Also, he's a bit of a bumbler. Things happen to him through no fault of his own. How did he get to be a hero? George has friends in High Places working hard to keep him out of trouble and not always succeeding. More

About Jenny Harrison

I only started writing in 1995 in my late 50s (yeah for us late bloomers!). Debbie’s Story - the story of childhood sexual abuse - was a huge hit when published in 1997, one of those books that appeared just at the right time and in the right place. It was second on the bestseller list for that year.
We immigrated to New Zealand in 1997 and in 2000 I co-authored a book called A New Life in New Zealand with my good friend Surita Nortjé. That has since become the preferred textbook for potential immigrants to New Zealand.
After that there was a lull when I wrote almost exclusively for magazines and newspapers, in particular Connections and Migrant News.
In 2006 I published a gift book called To the Child Unborn, a delightful book filled with wisdom and love which, I think, is the best thing I've done.
2007 and 2008 marked the start of my life as a fiction writer. I wrote The Falling of Shadows, The Indigo Kid and Accidental Hero - all set in the fictional small town of Panui. You can buy print copies through my website, www.jennyharrison.co.nz
I recently launched the fourth book in the Panui series, Rusty & Slasher's Guide to Crime, on an unsuspecting world.

Review by: Shauna Bickley on Aug. 01, 2012 :
George has a guardian angel, but he's not so sure he wants one.
Life might have been a bit dull before, but now things are definitely getting out of hand and moving faster than he would like.

Follow George and his wanderings around Panui and meet up with a few old friends.

Review by: Vicky Adin on July 12, 2012 :
This was such a quirky, funny read. Real laugh material. Wren's sense of humour rings loud and clear as we follow the hapless George as he gets into all sorts of difficulties he has no idea how to get out of. But there is always someone looking over his shoulder...
