AnneMarie Callan - children's author of Skellee, the Skellee Rescue Service. This is a series of modern-day folklore children's superhero storybooks and is for children aged 3 to 8.
She has recently moved into creating books for older children. 'The Secret FootBall Games With Football Quiz', being the first. This book is geared for children from the age of 6 to 96 :) which is very likely to make any reader smile from the antics within the story, as well as warm their heart with compassion.
With regard to the Skellee Superhero stories, there will eventually be 26 books. Each Skellee, the main characters in the stories, is named after a letter of the alphabet. She has recently introduced an interactive quiz at the end of each story as an addition to the books. This has gone done well with parents as it encourages their children to discuss the book and take note of what was happening within the story. A great comprehension tool for young children.
The Skellee Superhero stories have lived in her head for too many years to remember!
AnneMarie was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved to the UK in her teenage years. She now lives in Spain and travels between the UK and Spain regularly. Previously, she created a successful fashion design business and uses the internet to inspire others to follow their dreams of becoming a fashion designer.
Recently she has taken up art which is something she has always wanted to do, so combined with writing the children's stories and now illustrating them in her own fashion, AnneMarie feels she is living her dream life.
