Mysteries
and Strange Events – Nine Short Stories
by
Drew Jones
Genre:
Mystery 
 
Mysteries
and Strange Events Volume One brings together an evocative debut
collection of nine short stories from the author Drew Jones. They are
fantastically wide ranging in subject, and includes Jaguar cars,
railway accidents, strange salvage operations, commercial espionage,
greed, science fiction and ghosts – and every reader will find a
favourite within the book. They will all make him stop, think, and
question. This amazing mix is completed with some light humour as the
flamboyant sleuth – Mr Theodore Halfpenny, makes his first
appearance.

 

This
irresistible book will be your perfect companion as you commute to
work, struggle through a long haul flight, or just to keep at the
side of the bed after a long day.

My
name is Drew Jones and enjoy writing about mysterious and strange
events. Some of my ideas are derived from my interest in classic
cars, military airfields and the paranormal. I normally write in my
study in Wales with my Labrador dog Monty at my feet, and many ideas
and plots are thought through on our walks together in the woods.
There are lots of ideas buzzing in my head, many involving our sleuth
Theodore Halfpenny, who will appear in Mysterious and Strange Events
Volume 2 – which I hope to start work on soon!
I
have really had fun putting this collection together – so I hope
you have enjoyed them too. Perhaps you have read them on your
commute to work, on a plane as you travel towards your holiday, or as
a quick read at the end of a long day.
As
with all authors, I would be grateful if you would leave a review on
Amazon – it only takes a second, and is always much appreciated.
It
would be very nice to hear from all my readers, so if you would like
to contact me personally, please email at:

“Think before acting,” her father always warned.
But Princess Guinevere is ruled by her heart. Her betrothal to King Arthur has
not changed this.
When Guinevere and Cedwyn’s latest adventure takes a dangerous turn, they find themselves embroiled in a life-or-death struggle as foretold by Merlyn’s Goddess of the Stones.Renegades–foiled in their attempt to kidnap the princess–steal the children of Cadbury Castle to sell as slaves. Guinevere and Cedwyn vow to rescue the children, but a miscalculation puts them all in more
danger. The plan quickly unravels, and Guinevere’s impassioned decisions come crashing down as Cedwyn chooses to turn his dream of becoming a knight into reality. Will their courage be strong enough to survive, or will one make the ultimate sacrifice?”

I’m a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long past. Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and
Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in these worlds-Ancient Egypt, Medieval Wales, and coming soon, a hair-raising adventure through ancient worlds in search of 5 rare Phoenix Feathers.
All of my books come with Free study guides and/or extensive
Back-of-the-Book materials.
My husband and I love to travel. In 2008, we spent three weeks in
Egypt traveling by local train from one end of the country to the other; in 2014, we spent three weeks in the UK driving over 1700 miles through England, Wales, and Scotland; and in 2016, we spent a week in Iceland. We’ve also traveled to Mexico, Jamaica, and Aruba. Our next big adventure will be to Greece and Italy.

 

When I’m not writing or traveling, our 4 grandkids keep us busy.

  1. When did you start writing and was there a specific event or person who influenced you to become as author?

 

I’ve been writing for a long time; I wrote my first poem in eighth grade. My college years and my teaching career solidified my love of the ancient world and the times of King Arthur. It wasn’t until I retired from teaching literature and writing that I had the time to devote to my own tales which had roamed around in my head for years.

 

  1. Are you currently working on a project, and if so, can you tell us about it?

 

Yes and yes! I have started a new five book series Feathers of the Phoenix, and the first book The Atlantean Horse. Rose from Sons of the Sphinx will share the spotlight in this series with her cousin Jerome. Both of them have special abilities that they are struggling to live with and still be teenagers. The adventure revolves around an old prophecy that says one day when the five feathers of the Phoenix bird are reunited with a white stallion and one-who-survived—both of which were saved from destruction by Poseidon when he destroyed Atlantis—the lost island will rise again long enough for all three to return to their home. It will then disappear forever. Naturally there are those who want to be at the rising in order to steal the treasures rumored to be in that lost city.

 

  1. What is your favorite writing snack?

 

Red licorice.

 

  1. If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would you choose and why? What food would you serve?

 

I would love to sit with young Guinevere from my Guinevere trilogy, but I’m a picky eater. There’s very little food from Medieval times that I would eat.

 

  1. How do you relax, or what do you enjoy doing when you are not writing?

 

I love spending time with our grandkids. We two boys, ages 9 & 4, and two girls, ages 2 & 1. They are a lively bunch and keep us running.

 

  1. What’s your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it?

 

Traveling. I want to visit those places in the ancient and medieval worlds—whose literature I taught–that I’ve read and written about. We’ve done Egypt, Wales, England, Iceland, but have a lot more to explore. Every other year we pick a destination and plan a 3-week trip. Due for the next one in 2018. Wonder where we’ll go?

 

  1. What do you fear most?

 

Losing those I care for most. We’ve had a lot of loses in our family in the past, and just in the last nine months, we have said goodbye to three.

 

  1. What advice would you give someone who wants to write a book some day?

 

Ask yourself these questions:

 

What type of story do you want to write?

Who are you writing for?

How will your characters/plot appeal to readers?

Why do you want to write?
