About The Author
A bit about me; I live in the East Midlands, right in the centre of the UK, and when I'm not writing or working, I'm with the family or walking the dog in the local woodlands, seeking those ever-elusive Fae. Or sitting, pint in hand with the good friends I grew up with. Some of them are hidden in the books themselves; quite a few characters are based on the people I know and love.
And so, to the Cracklocks… "The Cracklock Saga" series of books came about from reading some pretty awful fairy books to my daughter over the years – she's in her teens now and has (with more than a little relief, I have to say) left those behind. But as I read those books with gritted teeth, I always wondered what would happen if someone didn't like fairies, what they would do about it, and could anybody stop them? This idea grew, and the Cracklocks were born. I liked the idea of people who hated the Fae and everything they stood for. And who knew just how wicked those people were?
Described by readers as a “Dark Harry Potter” style, the stories are suitable for YA and adults alike. They do get progressively darker, but that’s where the stories are taking me. It can take over sometimes; if you know, you know.
