About the Book: Ellie is no stranger to surprises, so when Amara, a magical mynah bird, visits her one morning and delivers an invitation to a mysterious gathering, Ellie takes it all in her stride. This, she hopes will be the start of her training and the beginning of her search to find the lost Earth Witches. But is she really prepared for the adventure? Will she be strong enough to overcome the dangers that lie ahead and will she learn to control her newly found powers?
About the Author: Though Rebecca’s background is based in science, having studied Sports Therapy and worked with the young physically disabled, she has always had a very big imagination and love for faery folklore and nature. Her first children’s book, Bryony Fairview: Weather Witch, was published in 2020 and she caught the writing bug big time – starting the second book almost immediately! Ellie Juneman: Earth Witch (in training) covers the importance of being kind to the world around us and focuses on the power or our own words. Being a mother of two very active, magical children, she has a constant source of inspiration and loves to be able to share this journey with them. Join them in exploring her magical worlds!
About the Illustrator: After a lifetime of service, initially in the Defence Forces and then in the Civil Service, Chris discovered his creative side in retirement. His artwork had been displayed in several exhibitions before he turned to illustrating his first children’s book, Bryony Fairview: Weather Witch, and he was very happy to be able to illustrate the second in the series Ellie Juneman: Earth Witch (in training). He is a grandfather of six and has thoroughly enjoyed channelling the magic of his grandchildren into the illustrations for these books.
