THE OFFICIAL FRIDAY NIGHT'S DREAM WEBSITE


Wyckerton is a lively, walled city. Tourists and locals visit every day of the year. They are always welcome and are never asked to leave ... but they do leave, one by one, until only the city's residents remain. And that is when it starts to get exciting ...

Friday Night's Dream: DARK CLOVER 


is available from 


30th June 2017


Launch Venue: Waterstones, West Quay

A story for the younger reader


I have a feeling that I'm going to need a story for younger siblings on Saturday. I'm writing it now - 'Little Witches of Wyckerton' - and will publish the full story here after the event. 

See what you think...


'Little Witches of Wyckerton'


Pippa and Fizz are little witches. No, really, they are. They live in Wyckerton, a city that’s ordinary during the day but magical by night. No one knows except the people that live there and they have to keep it a secret.

Imagine the fun an ordinary young witch could have living there and then imagine what an inquisitive one would get up to. If you can’t quite picture it you’d better keep reading, that way you’ll find out.


(more soon!)

 

 People are talking about Wyckerton...

Sarah Mussi award-winning children's author - Angel Dust, Siege, Riot and Breakdown wrote...

'Wyckerton is a fascinating read, full of magic, intrigue, and dastardly plots. Alfie is a hero in the tradition of all great heroes before him: kind, unassuming and full of stoical courage. I simply loved it.'

Lois was kind enough to say...

'Reads as if written by a very mature & gentle person who is aware of the importance of maintaining loyalties in childhood friendships - a nice lesson for children (and adults!) to follow.'

  N. Morris comments...

'Manhunt is excellent - you really did conjure up such an exciting and well-developed game...'
