Do you want to know a secret?
Beneath the very ground on which you walk and beyond the stars above your head, are more worlds than you could ever dream of. There are monsters. Be afraid. Magic, wielded by witches and sorcerers. Epic adventures in worlds far across the ocean. And fearsome weapons which threaten to destroy everything.
Jimmy Crikey is a brave soul who faces some pretty scary challenges. Solving mysteries and averting mayhem, his incredible courage allows him to free up his abilities to shine and rise above every challenge in his path, on his way to discovering why he looks so very strange.
With a bright red mop of unruly hair, big blue eyes, a small snub nose, pointed ears and enormous feet, poor Jimmy is ridiculed by the neighbourhood children and runs away in search of a world where he fits in. Following a midnight flight through the forest, he stumbles into a lost, underground world called Roombelow and magic, adventure, danger and excitement await.
From the little lady who lives at the bottom of a well, a starship that wants to take him home, trolls, little people, traders and diamonite stealers to water sprites, witches, helpful dolphins, and interplanetary warfare, Jimmy learns the biggest lessons of his life.
Guest Post From The Author
Talk about your favourite kind of character to write about
The underdog who against the odds comes out on top. Morally true to his/her ideals. A natural leader with hidden, almost supernatural talents
Talk about your least favorite kind of character to write about
Double dealers who seek to deceive.
Describe your ideal writing space.
The place is less important than my state of mind. When a story is flowing the surroundings are immaterial. Latterly, though I am sat in an armchair with my lap top, alternating attention between the story and the TV.
Describe your ideal home library.
Mostly made up of reference works, dictionaries, thesaurus, encyclopaedia, geographic, the natural world and, latterly, Greek mythology.
With fiction, as a general rule, once I have read a book, I rarely return to it.
The author will be raffling off a copy of the book during the book tour!
About the Author
Wallace Briggs (1943 – present). My formative years were experienced in and around Durham City. Married in 1964 to a girl I first met at the age of eleven,Pat and I spent many happy years in the North East before employment almost took us off to emigrate to Jo’berg, South Africa but plans were changed in the final weeks and instead the company moved me to Sussex.
After more than twenty years in Sussex, then Hampshire, employment was again responsible for the move to beautiful rural Lancashire.
Jimmy Crikey was born one rainy day, many years ago, during a family holiday in Great Yarmouth, to entertain my son and his new found friends for an hour or so. The story expanded over the following wet afternoons in the cramped confines of a beach tent, and more and more adventures were required to keep the children entertained. Many years later I decided to commit to the written word. Now retired I look forward to sharing The Amazing Adventures of Jimmy Crikey with a wider audience. These began as several short, twenty minute duration, stories but after an encouraging review from a major Publisher I brought them together in this offering and hope they will bring a sense of wonder and enjoyment to another generation.
