Overview

The Techno Festival has come to Hopplescotch Realm. Inventors and magicians from each of the different realms have all kinds of gadgetry and magic spells on show at the festival - more than you could ever imagine!
But there is mystery afoot!
Who is this Techno Wizard who always cloaks himself, and why does he have such a sinister appearance? Who are the Techno Pirates? Are they trying to ruin the Festival or are they trying to frame the Techno Wizard?
As usual in Hopplescotch Realm, things are not always what they seem. Join the kids on their fun adventure as they meet some weird and wonderful characters and unravel the mysteries.

Whilst Abby and the Hopplescotch Realm was a fun read, Julie Folkers' second novel, Anika and the Techno Pirates, is action-packed from cover to cover. Abby returns to the Hopplescotch realm to attend the Techno Festival, but this time it is not all fun and games. Trouble is afoot... Who is behind it? Could it be the Techno Pirates? Or is it the mysterious cloaked wizard? Julie Folkers has really outdone herself with this fantastic new novel. I thoroughly recommend this book.
-Jeremiah Rattray, aged 15

It is always a joy to see someone move steadily through the stages from writing student to published author. Julie Folkers is a big thinker. Why write one book when I can write a series? This must have been the question in her mind. Anika and the Techno Pirates is the result. That's quite a significant achievement.

-Brian Morris, Principal, New Zealand Institute of Business Studies.

If you thought Abby was a good read wait till you read this one!
It totally blew me away, couldn't stop reading! Action packed action along with mystical stuff that creates a mystery of it's own.

About the Author

I write mystery, fantasy fiction with witches and 5 kids who are training to take over to solve the realms' mysteries...ooky spooky stuff, even learnt the Tarot for book 2 to give it the real flavour it needed.

Julie was born and raised in Christchurch, New Zealand, where she is now residing again after living on the rugged West Coast of the South Island for nine years. She has worked and served overseas with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including a three- year posting to Bangkok, Thailand. After completing a diploma for Professional Writer of Children's Stories, she wrote her popular first fantasy novel for children, Abby and the Hopplescotch Realm. This was written as the first in her series of stories about the adventures of a group of children and other characters in a different world. Julie's series has grown to 4 books in total now with the 5th being penned, it is extremely popular, read her reviews on her website and enjoy her books
Julie lives with her two daughters and her cat, Moochie and her dog, Bailey.

Contracts have expired with my publisher so I am releasing books digitally and left over printed stocks are available through my website or online shops till stocks expire.I will then look at print on demand

The series is all written in past tense, Abby was 5th on our best seller list when it was first published in 2003.
I found a version of Abby in my computer that was typed in present tense before the publisher wanted it changed into past tense for publication, I hope you enjoy it! It's not as long or as detailed as the final one but still a rollicky read.

If you liked reading Harry Potter you will love this series and now with the help of digital publishing it is easy to bring the series to a world wide audience.
Most adults love my books too, Magical can even teach some adults how to keep a step ahead of teenagers and stop them playing the 'game'
