JANET ALLISON BROWN is the author of dozens of children’s picture books and editor of several volumes of academic papers. She has written explorer guides, restaurant reviews, and articles on a range of subjects including traditional Arabic ship-building and handicrafts, adoption, education, faith and ancient cave paintings. Wife, mother, home-educator, writer and editor, she was educated at Balliol College, Oxford, and lives in rural Derbyshire. She likes stories, and makes them up all the time.
When her mother dies at the hands of a silver-haired figure in black, six-year-old spirit-walker Cora Bloux hides out in her own body. Twenty years later she’s still there, fiercely maintaining an outwardly stable, conventional life.
But when her own daughter is hit by a car, Cora is forced to spirit-walk again—and discovers that the spirit world has been waiting for her.
