Monsters and Creepy Crawlies!

I wrote a book for my children – I wanted them to enjoy reading as much as I did at their age. One of the differences, social media – the solution was easy, link reading with SmartPhones. Now they read on Kindle. I must admit I prefer the touch and smell of paper, but there you have it, I’m just old!

Very Original and Funny in the End – Not Terribly Scary! 
By Rebecca of Amazon HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE on March 28, 2014 Format: Paperback 
You would think that a story about a shark would be a very scary read. While the book does have some suspense and adventure it is perfectlyfine for kids. In fact it might teach children to face their fears.
Basically the story is about a boy named Michael who sees a shark in the park. The shark chases him and eats his homework. You can imagine thestory he told his teacher that day after he barely makes it to the bus. 
I don’t want to tell you the ending of the story because it is so cuteand funny. It is better if it is a surprise. 
This is one of the cutestkid’s books I’ve ever read. Highly Recommended.

When her mother falls ill, brave Kameko sets off on a journey to bring back the jewel from the Monkey-King’s crown, known for its healing properties. Along the way she is helped by both people and kindly divinities, but will the Monkey-King give up his jewel so easily?

A strong female protagonist battling to save her mother. A Red Ribbon winner and highly recommended. The Wishing Shelf Book Awards

The story has a lyrical quality as though it is being told by an oral Storyteller of old. The illustrations seem simple at first glance but are actually quite complex for linocuts (and) suit the storyline perfectly… black and white with touches of red giving it a historic Japanese flavour. Bonnie Ferrante, picture book reviewer.

  • “Wow. Just wow. This was a book I desperately wish existed when I was a young teen. Not only was it an amazingly well-written story, but it reminded me of other great fantasies I have read. Reminiscent of books like Something Wicked This Way Comes. The ending blew me away and left me wanting more. I can’t wait to read the second book!”- A Girl and Her Kindle
  • “This enjoyable teen read mixes suspense and action with funny elements and serious parts. I look forward to seeing where the series goes…in many senses of that word. To know what I’m getting at, read the book.” –The Paisley Reader
  • Humphrey Quinn delivers an epic coming of age fantasy tale that captures the imagination and has created a new literary classic for the ages…

Teen twins, Meghan and Colin Jacoby, have never questioned their uncle’s only rule to live by—never stay in one place for too long. Instead, they’ve traveled the countryside with him in his travel trailer moving from place to place for nearly thirteen years, never having a reason to question why he chose this unsettled life—until now.

All they’ve come to know is about to change in this fast-paced, action-packed saga that blends the modern-day world with the enchantment of a classic fantasy adventure.

Through an unexpected series of events and strange encounters, they enter a foreign world that straddles their own—one of new friends, magical mysteries, and spellbinding twists that send them on dangerous missions and facing deadly enemies that are only supposed to exist in the world of make believe.

But as these encounters and events get stranger and scarier and become all too real, the true quest reveals itself and the adventure will take on a whole new meaning—to unravel the mysteries about their past and revealing why they have to stay on the move, as well as discover where they truly belong and if there’s such a thing as a place called home.
