The Machu Picchu Mystery Cover Reveal

I’m so excited to reveal the cover for the new Monstacademy mystery!

The mountains are full of secrets…

Trixie, Gloria and Colin are off on a trip to Peru to study ancient monsters. When they arrive and find that the children of the local school for monsters are disappearing, it becomes a race against time. Has a dark secret that’s been trapped in the mountains come back to haunt them all? Has an ancient Inca curse been released? Or is it somebody much closer to home?

The Machu Picchu Mystery is perhaps the spookiest Monstacademy mystery yet. With Trixie and her friends on the case, whatever evil is at large has a fight on its hands!

Can they find the missing monsters and solve the Machu Picchu Mystery? There’s only one way to find out…

The book is officially released on December 7th, but grab a copy from the store here and get it a few days before everybody else!

Countdown to publication

With publication deadline looming large in the forefront of my mind, I’ve had some great news this week with the delivery of the illustrations for The Halloween Parade. The illustrator, Amalia Rendon, has done a brilliant job capturing the characters and bringing them to life, I can’t wait for you all to see them in situ.

I’ve attached a teaser to whet your appetite.

Not long to go!

Halloween Parade Cover Reveal

It is with great excitement that I can finally reveal the cover for the upcoming first instalment of the Monstacademy series of books for children. It is titled The Halloween Parade and will enter editing at the end of this month. Thank you to all of the amazing beta readers who have and continue to give me great feedback on the story so far.

Due to the earlier than expected editing slot and hopefully with a fine wind and some eager work with my illustrator, I am hoping that you will all get to meet Trixie Grimble and her monstrous friends either before Christmas or not long after! Keep those fingers crossed!

Anyway, enough of the chit-chat and time for the cover!


I would love to hear your comments, questions and excitement in the comments below!
