Jem McCusker


I’m Jem McCusker, author of the Stone Guardians and the Rise of Eden. Book one of the Stone Guardians Fantasy Series.

This will be my debut novel and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to share it, with it’s release scheduled for December 2018, followed by book two, Stone Guardians and the Sons of the Master in June 2019.

I live in Brisbane, Australia with my husband and our two children. My eldest son, Sean asked me to tell him a story instead of reading one. I didn’t know where to start so I asked him what it should be about. He said he wanted it to be in Ireland because that’s where daddy is from and granny and granda too. Right, I thought, no pressure here. I’d half thrown something together in my head when he then requested it be about a frog.

As it goes, I managed to craft up a little something that has a taste of Ireland and a quirky frog with long legs and personality to spare. I enjoyed the story so much that I created a cast of accompanying characters, a dash of humour, a lot of adventure and a large dose of imagination.
