More About the Author
As a child I use to take five books a week from our local library and sit in our front room with a large bag of apples beside me. I munched away at the apples as I became immersed in the adventures the characters were having in Enid Blyton's 'Famous Five' and Malcom Savills 'Lone Pine Club'.
My stories are written in a similar but updated style to these old classics. There is no bad language, no vicious violence, no goblins or monsters, there might be a peculiar old lady who
could possibly be a witch, a bully who is always thwarted and 'baddies' that are always stopped from making a getaway by the various children in each of my books.
Many years ago when I was a young girl there were no computers, no x-boxes or computer games, we played in the woods, making bows and arrows, rope swings from trees, dens from bales of straw; hours of fun using our imagination.
I write the type of story I read as a child. Who do I write for, well possibly myself but more so for you. Come and join my characters and use your imagination as you follow them on their adventures.
Have a look at the opening free chapters of my books to see if there is one that you would like to get 'lost' in.
Happy reading, Angela.
'Izzy's Quest for Gold' In my latest book we meet nine year old Izzy, her older brother Josh and eleven year old Theo whom they make friends with when they go to stay on their grandmother's farm high in the Northumberland hills alongside Hadrian's great wall.
Spooky noises, sightings of the 'golden warrior', unpleasant characters who show too much interest in the Roman coins the children find. Kidnapping and a chase through the woods all lead to the exciting climax of this story.
'The Southwold Adventure' features Poppy, her sister Lily and their friends whom we first met in 'Guardian of the key'. This time they are at the seaside where they have small parts in a film being shot at the fairground. A diamond necklace belonging to the leading lady is stolen. Did a member of the cast steal it? Ollie comes to the rescue of the friends when they are locked in a fishermen's hut as one of the thieves makes his escape...
'Finch'. I hope my American readers will enjoy reading about the young American boy who is sent to a Suffolk village school when his father is posted to an American airbase in England. Espionage agents are trying to steal the plans of a new aircraft. Young Finch makes friends with John, Tony, Polly and Jennifer at the new school. Is one of their teachers in league with the espionage agents? Read this exciting story to find out how the boys track and bring about the downfall of the agents.

This is a conventional adventure that has been written in an exciting but plain and straightforward style that would probably suit an early reader. And I mean that in a good way. The set up, two sisters move with their parents to an old house in an out of the way English village, in which the younger sister finds a mysterious silver key, is unexceptional. The events that follow this discovery are equally predictable. The resolution is efficient and just as predictable.
The strength, and the appeal that I see, is that the book is crisply and clearly written. The pace is extremely fast and the plot develops quickly. Vocabulary seems age appropriate. The characters, (sisters, neighbor girl, helpful school mates, understanding adults, parents, bully), are all presented just as you would expect. The action is easy to follow, and the story just barrels along.
There is no irony and no goofing on the genre. There are no odd missteps or weird changes in tone. Descriptions are effective and dialogue is straightforward. There are no red herrings and no confusing shifts in the storytelling to throw off a young reader. The general tone is suspenseful yet upbeat and I would expect it to thrill rather frighten a young reader.
I could see a young reader getting a kick out of this book and feeling a certain sense of satisfaction at having completed it. I could also see it encouraging that reader to develop a taste for more advanced and complex magical adventure tales. That alone seems to make the book worth a look for your younger reader.
Please note that I found this book while browsing kindleunlimited freebies. I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
