Who or What inspired you to write this book?
Two things: a story in the newspaper about a bus accident killing students returning from a school trip and remembering a girl from high school that no one ever talked to or seemed to care about. I felt bad that I had never tried to say anything nice to her. That got me wondering what would happen if there was a tragedy involving a bunch of high school kids and how would that affect the rest of the student body. Would everyone treat each other better?

I was born in a little seaside town in the North East of England.
England nice…Who or What inspired you to write this book?â€¨
I was sat watching my son play and my nieceâ€™s dollâ€™s house caught my eye. (Book one includes talking dollsâ€¦) I have always said that one day I would write one. I love the old classics such as Roald Dahl and Tolkien. Also movies like The Labyrinth and Clash of the Titans and anything Disney. â€œKieraâ€™s Quest,â€ has a touch of a classic fantasy-fairytale with a modern twist.
This is a quite compelling and yet different kind if book that addresses bullying in schools. It is well put together and will keep the attention of the kids reading it. It is a great tool for parents and teachers to use to talk about this difficult theme. It is a great story to open conversations about this horrible practice. It is well written, has a good pace and the characters are quite believable.
