Meet the Author

Who am I? A children's author. I cover all market sectors from those aimed at the very young (often to be read to them) up to the Young Adult market. All my books slot into specific imprints according to length and target audience. As follows... Snippets - Shorter books aimed at younger readers or adults looking for something to read to them at bedtime. BratReads - No, not books for brats, books that are themselves a little brat-ish. By turns, funny, awkward, anarchic or just a little thoughtful. TeenReads - As the name implies, books for teenagers. Adventurous and rebellious. I am now working with talented artist Janice Carr, who will be creating the illustrations for my books. We are also collaborating on several exciting ideas on books about the world and how we see it. Look out for some interesting developments in the future. I may be contacted on ghosthunter457(at)gmail(dot)com

When i read this i was confused at first because before i had read a differrent version of this

This is a great quick story short retelling of a very famous Greek myth. When Arachne boasts that her woven tapestry is better than the Goddess Athene, she doesn't think of the consequences. This is a short story, only 22 pages, but well worth the read. If you don't already love the Greek legends, this will at least get you interested.

Through Arachnids(beautiful) work that took MONTHS, she was trying to please the( Greek) gods, she only angered Athena. Athena ripped the tapestry (woven) into shreds. Arachnids work was DESTROYED, she took the longest strand and hung herself, to save her Athena tured her into a spider
