When Tam interrupts a witches' sabbath, he finds himself running for his life! The great Robert Burns poem retold as a thrilling and spooky adventure. Barrington Stoke specialise in books for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic readers.
I'm a children's writer based in Scotland, and most of my fiction is inspired by the Scottish landscape and local legends. I love writing fantasy adventures for 8 - 12 year olds, but I also love creating stories for other age groups. I've written several picture books, including one about bottoms (which I enjoy reading to infant classes!) and a recent retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, with gorgeous pictures by Celia Chauffrey. I've written retellings of myths for slightly older readers, and a contemporary novella called Drawing a Veil. Maze Running, the fourth and final novel in my First Aid for Fairies series, has just been published, so I'm now looking round eagerly for the next novel idea.
