The Mystery of Craven Manor: An Adventure Story for 9 to 13 year olds by Joy Wodhams

When 11 year old runaway Matt Bright is rescued by Samantha Cooper and taken to her creepy home, Craven Manor, he has no idea that he's entering a trap.
What is the mystery of Samantha's parents? Who is the sinister Mr Higgins? And the even more frightening Great Aunt Dorothy who lurks on the top floor? What do they want? And why won't they let Matt leave?
When Matt finds his life in danger he tries to escape, and there is only one route. And so begins the most terrifying experience of Matt's life. (Warning to readers: Do not try this at home.)
Suitable for boys and girls aged 9 to 13.

About the Author

I've enjoyed writing as long as I can remember and at the age of seven produced my first magazine, selling it to my friends for one old penny. Several decades later I became a real magazine editor and went on to sell short stories and features on a regular basis to national magazines.

I come from quite a creative family (five generations of theatre and circus gymnasts, trapeze artists, singers, musicians and songwriters) but I'm rubbish on a trapeze, I can't sing or dance or even crack a joke without forgetting the punchline. However, I am a painter and art tutor, and most of all I love to write, so I hope some of you out there will be able to pass a happy hour with one or more of my books.

Seven of these are available on Amazon Kindle:
Three adult novels (AFFAIR WITH AN ANGEL, THE RELUCTANT BRIDE and NEVER SLEEP WITH A NEIGHBOUR), two collections of short stories (THE FLOATER and THE GIRL AT TABLE NINE) and two novels for children aged 9 to 13, A LION CALLED BUSTER and THE MYSTERY OF CRAVEN MANOR.

Oh, and if you're interested in taking up the pen, laptop or tablet and having a go yourself, do take a look at my creative writing blog, THE WRITER'S DESK, at, where you'll find tips on how to improve your writing skills.
