Shalbey Bellaman was born and raised in Africa, spending most of her time outdoors with her brothers and sister whilst watching out for snakes or monkeys. When she wasn’t doing that, she was reading everything she could get her hands on or entertaining her siblings with ghost stories. She still feels like the girl who ran barefoot and climbed trees in the African sun or escaped to far-away places through the stories she read, and this is why she writes for children. Her favourite books are about family, animals, dragons, magic and the supernatural, and her writing reflects this. She lives near London with her husband and their three sons live nearby with their families.

Jack in the Wallows
by Shalbey Bellaman
Jack and his cousin Katie are snatched by a grumpy leprechaun and whisked off to the kingdom of Kindling on a mission to save it from invaders called Gangrals. They meet extraordinary creatures; some friendly, some hostile. As the kingdom’s last hope, they must fight the invaders and outwit a traitor with a deep-seated grudge against the queen.
