Product description

About the Author

Anne McAlpine was born in Scotland. She grew up there and it's where she still lives. But she's also travelled all over the world. She's visited every continent except Antarctica - somewhere she really wants to go as she absolutely loves penguins. Before she was a full-time writer, she was a primary school teacher for many years. She's written stories since she was a child. She began by making up stories to tell to her four little sisters. Then she wrote plays for herself and her friends to act out. There's never been a time in her life when she wasn't making up and writing down stories. But because she was so busy being a teacher and being a mother to her own children it took a very long time to get her first book written. When she's not reading or writing, she enjoys reading, going for long walks and she loves spending time with her friends and my family - most especially her two grandchildren. The Silver Locket is her first book for children. It's an exciting historical adventure. She wrote it mainly for nine to twelve-year-olds, but she hopes anyone who likes a story with a bit of history, danger and time-travel in it will enjoy it. It's set in Scotland and during the course of the story three twelve-year-old friends from the 21st century travel back in time to 1746 and the Battle of Culloden. They have to help Bonnie Prince Charlie, the leader of the defeated Jacobites to escape from King George's Redcoat army. And they mustn't fail because if they do then history will be changed and they might not even be born. She got the idea for the book when she was still a teacher and she went with a class of Primary 6 children to the visitor centre at Culloden in Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. There, she and the children got to dress up as Jacobites and Redcoats, and they re-enacted parts of the battle out on the battlefield site. It was while they were doing that that Anne got the idea for The Silver Locket. She had one of those 'what if' moments that all writers get and she thought, 'what if we were all suddenly transported back to the time of the real battle?' And that was it. Her writer's brain was off and away...
