Becky is a typical thirteen year old girl. She likes Facebook, gossiping and plenty of sleep. So when she and her brother, Joe, are invited to stay with their ‘loony’ Uncle Percy at his stately home, she thinks it’ll be the worst summer ever. What she doesn’t realise is that Bowen Hall is also home to a baby Triceratops, two Sabre-tooth tigers and the mythic hero, Will Scarlet…
‘The Time Hunters’ is a thrilling adventure that takes Becky, Joe, Uncle Percy and Will on a quest through time to find the legendary Golden Fleece.
The Clock is ticking….
I’ve been really enjoying the YA and middle-grade fiction I’ve been reading recently but I have to say, The Time Hunters 1 is a cut above the rest.
I so enjoyed reading this book. It was enthralling and a terrific mystery perfect for adventurers of all ages. But the best part for me was how it made history interesting. I loved this book enough to grab the entire series and add it to my reading list AND I bought copies for my middle-grade readers! I can’t wait!!

I’m an independent author and am perhaps best known for my ‘Time Hunters’ series. I wrote the first draft of ‘The Time Hunters’ in 2006 when I took a year’s sabbatical to live in the South West of France.
I’m delighted with the success ‘The Time Hunters’ series has received. Not only has the series sold over a hundred thousands of copies on Kindle/paperback across the UK and the USA, but the reviews have been overwhelming.
I am currently writing a new novel entitled ‘Zak Fisher and the Angel Prophecy.’
I live in Crewe, England, with my partner, Lisa, my daughter, Alice, and my son, Will.
I also like Naan breads, blob fish and chives.
