About the Author
Stephen Wand grew up in rural Lincolnshire where his insatiable appetite for adventure stories made him a regular visitor to the local library. From there he would enjoy books by such as Rosemary Sutcliff, Henry Treece and D.K. Broster. These, along with many others created a life-long love of fiction and a burning desire to write. For several years he studied the writing craft, following which he achieved publication of a number of non-fiction articles in UK-based magazines before turning his attention to fiction Stephen now works as an editorial freelancer and writer and lives in North Lincolnshire with his wife, Julie, teen-age son, Josh and border terrier, Freyja. ‘The Door to Caellfyon’ is his first novel. The journey will continue in ‘Flight of The Sparrow’ and ‘The Hammer of Caellfyon’, both books scheduled for release during 2016.

The prose is delightful and draws you in to the story where you learn about Levi, Poppy and the villagers of Skenmarris and their plight. Levi has to grow up very quickly early on in the plot and you can emphasise with him as he realises the gravity of his situation and the role he has to play. The backdrop to each scene is perfectly realised by the colourful descriptions of the town and surrounding countryside, fenland and moor. I can't wait to find out more about Levi and Poppy's adventure and I would recommend it as an engaging read for kids (10+) and adults alike.

A very good read with many twists and turns to keep you guessing,don't want to put it down once you have started
Excellent page turner transporting you to another fantastical place with problems & power struggles galore.2 January 2016
Once you enter Caellfyon the story grips your imagination and all of a sudden you realise that you'll have to put it down in order to sleep!! I like the way that you learn about the characters through their verbal interaction with each other rather than having to wade through huge amounts of prose. The author seems to have hit the right balance between prose & dialogue, both providing very vivid pictures of the characters, the scenery & the story as it unfolds before you. I normally speed read when the descriptions become a little weighty but this was definitely not the case with this book. I can't wait to see how Levi & his sister's characters develop further in the next book & to watch how they interact with the indigenous folk of Caellfyon......, book number 2 asap!

Very well written novel which will keep the interest of youngsters (target audience) through to the end. All the characters are believable and well developed. Now looking forward to second in the series.
