The Chatswood spooks are in trouble. Spookiness levels at the Chatswood Manor are at an all-time low, and their boss is not impressed. The spooks need to improve their scare tactics or find another house to haunt.

But the spooks have no intention of moving on: they still have plenty of unfinished business to attend to. Rallying together, they haunt the hallowed hallways of Chatswood Manor like never before.

The spooks, however, get the fright of their afterlives when Ivan the Fearless shows up…

The Chatswood Spooks: A Frightful Recipe is the first in the Chatswood Spooks series. Aimed at readers from Grade 2-4, each story is illustrated with detailed line drawings and is bursting with silliness.

What they’re saying:

The characters have engaging personalities and there’s a gentle humour which adults reading aloud will also appreciate.” — Carolyn at ILovePrettyThings.com.au

“The ghosts have pleasant and distinct personalities. The scary stuff is very non-scary, appropriate for very young readers. The narrative and dialogue are engaging and accessible” — Amazon reviewer PopBop

” Not only is it a surprisingly fun tale, it has its moments of humour as well.” — LJ DeVet (author

Rock Your Destiny!
^
Gina Santiago is a thirteen-year-old “Nuyorican” with rock star dreams, so when she’s accepted into the prestigious New York Academy of Arts and Talents for art instead of music, she’s crushed.
&
To make matters worse, the student body at the Upper East Side school is divided into “schollies” (students on scholarship, like her) and “dollies” (rich kids with “dollars”).
*
But Gina discovers that there is one thing that brings schollies and dollies-and dancers, singers, actors, artists, and musicians-together: music! Maybe she can make her dreams come true after all….
^
What they’re saying about it:
*
“Track one of the Arts Angels, Drawn to you, is a incredibly exciting, well put together story about a passion for music. I love the way the story leads the reader through all the feelings Gina is feeling. For example, the band moments make me happy, but when scenes with her mother come on I’m sitting with my nose against the paper of the book. This book is a fantastic, exciting and beautiful. It’s fantastic to see how the band grows, how relationships between characters are made and especially how some problems solve, but other mysteries appear again. Still stuck in the story, I really can’t wait for Track 2. What’s going to happen between Gina and Willow, and what about the two bands? Loved every bit of it. I really can’t think of anything negative to comment on. It was a wonderful story! Really well done!”
