Authors For Charity

Authors For Charity - what exactly is that? Pretty much what is says. Myself, Jennifer Loiske, my daughter - Megan, Elizabeth Glanville and Laura Warnes met up and decided to write short stories to go into an anthology - the proceeds of which would go to charity.

Our first book was for children. Tales of an Old Wizard was published in 2013 and the money we raised helped fund an activity club for teenagers with Epilepsy.

TALES OF AN OLD WIZARD is a collection of short stories for 9+ readers. All the profits from this book go to charity. The world has forgotten the real, old magic and no one remembers how to make a fire by snapping their fingers, or how to raise waves with a whisper. Greum is a wizard. He used to rule the elements but now he doesn't bother. The only magic left in his life is that in the stories a young boy delights in tricking out of him. Stories of dragons, warriors and sorcery.
As soon as we'd finished this book we began discussing our next one and where the money would go. Laura had beaten cancer twice and asked that the money go to the unit that treated her. We agreed immediately. Joining us for our next collection is Drue Fairlie , and we decided to write stories for Young Adults, on a paranormal love theme. And what better title for our book Paranormal Love.

Witches, werewolves, mysterious creatures and haunted dreams...these are just a few encounters of the third kind that you will come across in the anthology of stories about dark love and forbidden romance. 
Sadly during production of Paranormal Love, Laura was diagnosed with cancer once more. and this time lost her battle. The proceeds from this book and any copies of Tales of an Old Wizard that are now sold, will go to the Sussex Cancer Unit that treated her and Paranormal Love is dedicated to her memory.
Please help us to make a difference to others that are treated on this unit by buying either of these books, which we hope will give the reader some hours of enjoyment and escapism.
Thank You from all of us.
