Wizards by John Booth

Jake has a secret hidden in his bedroom, under the carpet. It is a game that every child knows and plays. But for Jake, there is one small difference. This game takes him to strange and wonderful worlds. He calls it hopscotch and it helps him find missing people. It helped him find Jenny.

Jake is a wizard but he doesn’t have a clue.

But that’s not all; Jake has yet another secret, hidden away in the attic. It’s an accident, a strange object from another world. Jake has forgotten about this secret, but that’s all about to change. Because this secret is about to hatch!

Jenny doesn’t think Jake is weird - she likes weird. Princess Esmeralda of Salice thinks Jake should repay past mistakes. Evil wizards, kingdoms at war, chases, rescues, an offer he can’t refuse …

Jake is a wizard and his life is about to get interesting.

About the Author:
Hi, my name is John and I am a writer.

I had always dabbled in writing but in late 2006 I discovered I could write novels and in the next two and a half years I wrote 16 of them. To be honest, at that stage they weren't very good because I hadn't found my voice.

I joined Authonomy and spend a year editing and promoting a book called Shaddowdon to win a gold star. Harper Collins reviewed that book and their review was very positive.

Somewhere along the way I found out how to write and I went back and selected some of the best of those novels I'd written and kicked them into shape. Three publishers have found those books good enough to publish and the first two are now in print. Shaddowdon and others are in the pipeline.

I write because I find it highly enjoyable. I also get a kick out of others enjoying my stories. What could possibly be better?
