bookshop

I’ve always wanted to own a bookshop.

This is the best I could do!

Feel free to browse…

When her parents send her to stay with a grandmother she hardly knows for the summer, Elen is furious. Gran lives on a tiny island and doesn’t want her to stay either – it’s not an easy start.
Gran’s idea of childcare is to give Elen a map and tell her to explore. Who is the odd boy on the beach with a puffin? After saving Gran in a storm, Elen finds a picture that she’s sure is a clue to hidden treasure. She investigates – and finds a very different treasure from the one she expected.

Help yourself to an imaginary fairy-cake and sit in one of my imaginary seats.


Have you seen her?
Cardiff 1899. All Nansi knows is that she and her mother were running away from someone, and then she was being fished out of Cardiff docks with no memory of how she got there. Her mother hasn’t been seen since. With nobody else to turn to, she works for Pernicious Sid at the Empire Theatre. She loves it when she gets the chance to perform and dreams of being a star, but Sid also makes her steal, sneaking into rich houses dressed as a maid, telling her the money will pay for a dectective to find out who she is. Life is hard but Nansi is a fighter, determined to protect her friend Bee and, most of all, to find her mother.
Everything changes when Constance and Violet join the theatre. At first it looks like Violet might be Nansi’s big break, but it’s Con that holds the real secret. Who can Nansi trust? As she starts to get closer to the truth, she’s soon on the run for her life.
Can she save her mother? Can she save herself?
Eloise Williams’s wild, dark Victorian thriller has a brave, complex heroine who will break your heart and make you cheer. ‘It’s hard to drown when you’re as good at swimming as I am…’

Look at that rain outside the imaginary bookshop window.

You don’t want to go out in that do you?

Why not buy another book from my imaginary shop? 

‘She will come for you…’
Lark needs a break. Her mother is ill, her little sister has stopped speaking and she’s fallen out with her best friend. When they go on holiday to the Welsh coast for autumn half term the sisters rush off to explore. But this freedom soon gets frightening. Is there a figure in the fog? What happened at the ruined house in the woods? Why does her sister keep drawing a girl in a green dress? As the storms get wilder and events get stranger, Lark must face a long-buried secret to save her family.
A chilling contemporary ghost story from the award-winning author of Gaslight, inspired by and set firmly on the Welsh shoreline.

I know it’s quite a small bookshop but it’s growing all the time! Thanks for calling by. If I were you I’d now go and visit a proper, really real bookshop and smell all the books and then buy all the books and then read them all.
