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. Next in the series: 'No, Papa'.Interludes - A series of short books aimed at the Young Adult/Crossover audience. Mystical, mysterious and sometimes a little scary, you might want to read these with the light on.Tales of the Night - Full length ghost stories for the YA/Crossover market. Next in the series: 'Heretic'.I may be contacted on ghosthunter457(at)gmail(dot)com

    Even though its short it is a good story.

    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

    Wonderful Retelling

    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.
