And if you’re looking to dive into an adventure, why not try Sharon’s brilliant book The Shiver Stone – reviewed here by Rachel Ward

Carys has a lot on her plate: a mystery to solve, a new friend to help, a dog to look after and her father’s girlfriend to ignore. Risking the dangers of the sea and cliffs around her home town of Carreg, and watched over by the Shiver Stone, Carys and her friend Jago must face their greatest fears in this novel for middle-grade readers (9 to 12). This is an action-packed story that manages to balance a vivid sense of place (the Pembrokeshire coast), with a delicate portrayal of family relationships and a tense, thrilling plot. Sharon’s writing is engaging right from the start, carrying the reader through to an exciting and satisfying ending.
