I have spent all my life working with words, in public relations or as a journalist.
When I couldn’t decide whether to write an adult or a children’s book, the spirits from the other side intervened.
My mother-in-law Eileen sadly passed away after a long illness. Four months later my wife visited a medium in England called Julie Wise to see how her mum was managing on the other side. I’m a sceptic, so I stayed away, but my wife brought a recording home.
During the reading my spirit guide - apparently a Buddhist monk – barged forward unprompted to declare I was born to write children’s books and my sons (Zach and Samuel) were here to help me in that quest.
My wife encouraged me to write a children’s book.
Who was I to argue with her...or the spirits on the other side?
Sixty days later I wrote ‘the end’ even though I know it is just the beginning.
Ms Hamilton, a mysterious substitute teacher, takes over a class of eleven-year olds for a week. She asks four children to write a story in a strange dark green book, but their adventures become real, taking them through time from Ancient Egypt into the future. In each exciting episode, the children must defeat Aggie, an evil step-mother, who is battling to keep them trapped in their new reality.
