The Ancient Forest is ready for printing and I trust it will be successful.

My concern is for the number of young people who grow up without a knowledge of the supernatural.  I don’t  like  preaching and yet I want to remind them that these things are present. They may need them later. This is a cosy novel and quite small. It would make an inexpensive present for birthday or otherwise. There is plenty of  activity and pathos as well as a romance. Some young people I know would relate to a hard-done-by orphan who finds himself a serf in the Forest Inn. We watch his character grow as he fights an evil in the forest. Mis adventure takes his best friend to Van Dieman’s Land but there is a resolution at the end where all characters find peace.
