This is my first attempt at writing a children's story for publication. My last employment was with The Department of the Environment as a Technical Officer. This involved overseeing maintenance and installations in government military and civil establishments in the area allotted to me.
I am widowed with two girls. The eldest has two boys and the youngest two girls who were in my thoughts when writing this story.
Hugh Mckenzie's ingenious book sees a group of young friends from a sleepy Scottish village discover how to travel through time to momentous happenings in both the distant and not so distant past. Through their new found powers they find themselves in the middle of some of Scotland's most important and tragic events, which both thrill and horrify them.
