About the Author

Belinda grew up in a small harbour town in New Zealand: a glorious place to be a child. She shared a pony with her sisters, and spent most of her time reading, riding, and playing on the beach at the bottom of their road. (Even now, tidal water still tugs at her imagination.) Career-wise, Belinda has enjoyed different combinations of children and books - as a teacher, a librarian, a book publisher, and now as an almost-full-time writer. She has lived in Beirut, and Melbourne, and on the south coast in England, and now she mostly divides her time between London and Key West (in Florida). Belinda lives in Primrose Hill, North London, with her partner, Bruce.

By Patricia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"TREMORS - BRINGING BACK THE DEAD", is a work of FICTION, and eems to be written for intelligent pre-teen readers. As such, it is involving and interesting. (I had, however, first
thought it was a work of non-fiction, a "how-to" book on bringing
back the dead, for real, and so was a bit disappointed upon first seeing it. But then, who knows that this story might lead to further research by experts in the paranormal, on this subject?) Anyway, it is also interesting to note that, though the book was written, published, and takes place in England, that the American spelling, ("Tremors"), is used in the title -- and not the Engish spelling, which would have added an extra "U", ("TremoUrs"). Hmmm....

In the story, (by BELINDA HOLLYER, well-illustrated by DAVID
KEARNEY), young Jamie and his dad find an old photograph of a turn-of-the-(20th)-century family in an old junk shop. In the photograph are seven people -- four children and three adults, all obviously quite poor, standing outside a cottage. Upon closer observation, Jamie and his dad discover that the cottage these people are standing outside of, is the very SAME cottage in which Jamie, his dad and mom, are now living! Naturally, they must buy this photograph -- and do. When they bring it home, strange things start happening....

Jamie has a dream that night, about the four poor-looking children in the photogaph. Wheb he awakes, he discovers that the dirty rag, held by the youngest child, has somehow come OUT of the photograph, and is now in his bedroom! More than this -- the children in hte photograph seemed to have MOVED AROUND in it, and are NOT in thje same positions they were in before!

The next day, Jamie looks at the photograph, and sees to hear the youngest girl whisper, "Mine! Mine! I want it back!" The ghost of the little girl wants her rag back!

Jamie and his father go to the town's library, to find out about the people in the photograph. A family tragedy that befell them is discovered, but with the help of a very modern device, it is, (partially), rectified. However, the story isn't completed...even at its ending....

This is a satisfying, chilly ghost story, with the living helping the dead. It makes one realize that, just being alive and human can have its advantages! It is an unsttling tale, but one also of kindness and hope!

There is one illustation on every page, in this children's book. The illustrations all seem to be pencil drawings, very well done, in, (for this book), appropriately atmospheric black-and-white, although there is a colour illustration on the cover. The paper stock is of very high quality, and the text-size is large and clear, all making this book a pleasure to read -- and, probably, re-read...

All in all, a nice story, with much food for thought, for readers young and old. It is very well written, illustrated, printed and bound. This is a story which will stay with the reader for a long time, and which will probably bring the reader back, for many a re-reading!
