Anna Strange and the House Fantastic is David’s first foray into the world of speculative fiction, quest, adventure, drama and fantasy. Two more books are in gestation at the moment, continuing the adventures of Anna Strange.
Anna Strange is stranger than she thinks. When a mysterious house summons the 12 year old Anna, it engulfs her in a journey of discovery and adventure through rooms of fantasy, mystery and revelation. Anna is about to find out just how strange – and how real - she really is.
