AnneMarie Callan - children's author.
The Skellee books are a series of modern day folklore children's stories and are aimed at children aged 3 to 8. The Skellee characters are superheros who each have super powers, which will delight every young child. They work at the Skellee Rescue Service offices. It is here that the Skellee operator decides which Skellee to send out on a rescue, whether it be a child, an animal or anything that needs their service.
Eventually, there will be 26 books in the Skellee series. Each of the Skellees being named after a letter of the alphabet.
These stories have lived in AnneMarie's head for too many year to remember!
She has recently moved into creating books for older children. 'The Secret FootBall Games With Football Quiz', being the first. This book is geared for children from the age of 6 to 96 :) It is very likely to make any reader smile from the antics within the story, as well as warm their heart with compassion. The interactive quiz was greatly received by readers, so much so that she decided to go back and gradually introduce them into the Skellee stories as well.
AnneMarie was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved to the UK in her teenage years. She created a successful fashion design business and now lives between the UK and Spain. Her small family consists of her two sons and four grandchildren.
