Guest Bio

Born in Australia, Sharon moved to the UK at the age of six, where she was based until moving with her family back to Australia in 2008. Forging a love of fantasy literature and history from an early age, these elements have greatly influenced her own writing. Archaeology has been a major part of Sharon's life and her love of ancient culture and mythology can be felt in her story telling. Sharon adores her 'island life' that she now shares with her husband Andy and dog Rollo.

With S B Postlewhite

Meet S B Postlewhite, author of 'The Dumnonian Compass' 

About 'The Dumnonian Compass'


But between her parent's antics and the mysterious creatures that keep turning up, 'normal' is not happening for her. Darcy is the daughter of two eccentric, and obsessive archaeologists, who are so work focused, they often seem to forget she exists.

On a family holiday to Cornwall, Darcy discovers there is a task before her and it is hers alone; one that challenges her ideas about the world and more so, about herself.

In exploring the strange happenings, Darcy becomes trapped in an alternate world where the rules are vastly different from those she knows. Sent on a journey by a stranger, Darcy begins to understand that being true to herself is more important than 'fitting in', and friends can be made in the most unlikely of places.

She realises her physical journey is to find a way back home; yet her emotional discovery is to value real love, true loss and the knowing of the right things; this is the hardest path for Darcy to travel...
