Agatha Christie and Emily Bronte

 Since I started writing bedtime stories for Sleepiest, I've been given wonderful opportunities to write about my favourite authors. And Agatha Christie and Emily Bronte are right at the top of my list.

You can access Sleepiest by clicking here.



This story is about Greenway in Devon - the one time home of Agatha and her family.





This one is about the lovely town of Haworth in Yorkshire where the Bronte sisters lived, and how Emily was inspired by the beautiful landscape of the moors to write Wuthering Heights.

The Magic Begins - A Jupiter Twins Story

 This Sleepiest bedtime story has been one of my favourites to write. It involves a magic school beneath the streets of the city where I live - Leeds. It's the first day of school for the Jupiter twins,  Lily and Jake, and they enter the magical school via the steps outside the town hall - which is opened by a stone lion who comes to life.

The second story in this series will be released soon.

These are photos I took of Leeds Town Hall and the steps which, possibly, lead to a school of magic.

A Home On Mars

 I watched a lot of documentaries about possible homes on Mars before I wrote this Sleepiest bedtime story. It's amazing what scientist already know about the distant red planet and how, one day, it'll be possible for humans to live there. This story is about the first people who leave Earth behind and set forth towards Mars to build homes there.

Dreaming Of Barcelona

 This Sleepiest story was a lot of fun to write and I got lost in research for days over Gaudi's amazing buildings.

This story concerns an architect who is looking for inspiration for his own work, and where better to go than Barcelona?

Whispering Pines

 This Sleepiest bedtime story involves a man who wanders through a forest. He meets an enigmatic storyteller who tells him an enchanting tale about the trees.

Steamboats Of The Mississippi

Sailing down the Mississippi is a dream of mine so writing a bedtime story about it is the next best thing, and I got to research the amazing works of Mark Twain.
