Grace's Secrets

Long-listed for the 2020 Davitt Awards!

I couldn’t stop reading this book even though it made me cry! I love Castle Faerie and Glen Hollow. I just wanted to know what was going to happen next because things just kept happening one after the other. I wish I could time travel like Grace did. It would be so cool to go back to the castle in the olden days like she did but I don’t think I could do all the things she did. I’m not that brave. This book was a massive adventure that kept me holding my breath until the end. I would give it a ten out of ten. I want the next book NOW!

But unsolved problems have a way of following . . . A map of the castle’s secret passages sends Grace on a time-travelling mystery that will challenge her very existence and all that she loves. Can Grace save herself as well as her family? And how will some of her favourite children’s authors help her on her quest?



D-Bot Squad

I am writing this on behalf of my son, Jamie, aged 5. He wants me to tell you how much he loves the D-Bot Squad books - he thinks they are 'so good' - and wants to know if another series is in the works. He's read all 8 books...multiple times!
Thanks for helping to bring such fabulous books to kids, and getting boys into reading. 

Best wishes

A world kids love using words they can read.


Dinosaurs are back and on the loose! It’s up to the D-Bot Squad to catch them.
Hunter Marks knows everything there is to know about dinosaurs. But will it be enough to build a d-bot that can catch a real dinosaur?


Dinosaurs are being bred in secret on a faraway island. But now some have escaped and D-Bot Squad needs people who can catch them using robotic dinosaurs that are stronger, faster, smarter than the dinosaurs. Hunter is chosen but he will need to think fast and learn about teamwork if he is going to catch them!

This is one school day that will be anything but normal ….

Harriet Clare


I am the proud mum of a very brave eight-year-old girl named Elaina. I am writing to you to thank you for sharing your talent and bringing laughter and joy to my little darling when she needed it the most. Recently my precious girl relapsed. During her stay in the hospital, trying desperately to recover sight to her left eye she spent her days reading (amazingly). With sight in one eye and immense passion for your books (Harriet Clare), Elaina managed to complete book 3&4 in the series in the last ten days of her treatment. Harriet Clare brings her so much joy and happiness, warming her little heart when she has needed it the most. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for putting a smile on her face, thank you for the beautiful giggles and the inspiration you bring. It is going to be a long journey to recovery for her, but I know Harriet Clare not only eases the road but encourages fun along the way!
