“Ending in a lighthouse, the book is a rollicking good read for children over nine” Sue Leonard, The Irish Examiner.

The Black Viper Gang want to possess the secret of Platinum Fire. If they find it they will gain unimaginable power. But who is the mastermind behind this gang? Simon and Kerry Macken must protect the secret of the flame. How will they make it from the remote Grimhall Fortress to the Land of Fire? Can they escape the evil witch of Anvar and cross the treacherous mountain pass before the Vipers catch them?

The second Ark of Dun Ruah novel is another fast-paced adventure story with Simon, Kerry and friends. The Ark of Dun Ruah transports the reader across high seas and perilous lands on another exciting quest, filled with intriguing characters, trusted eagles and encounters with the enigmatic prophet Malachy.

From the author:

Author wife and mother, I live in Blackrock, Cork city, Ireland near the beautiful River Lee. My love of storytelling comes from my years working as a primary school teacher, presenting on radio and being a mother. I like to paint, act and read books in my spare time.

My fantasy novel for young readers, “The Ark of Dun Ruah”, was published by Currach Press in November 2012. The second book in the series, “Protectors of the Flame” was published in October 2013. The third book, “The Portal of Zebulon will be out next year.

“God has blessed my life in so many ways and I’m very grateful to him for the privilege of writing for children and visiting schools, festivals, shops and libraries throughout Ireland.”
