The Lambshank Redemption

A Leprechaun's Curse


Minty, a happy and carefree lamb is hoodwinked into running away from farmer Joe's farm by Ginger, a wicked and spiteful tomcat. Ginger convinces Minty that she must runaway to find the magic meadow before she is taken away to the slaughterhouse, and then slow cooked in farmer Joe's wife's cooking pot to make the stew.

Here starts the first part of Minty's unique and wondrous adventure that will see her encounter hidden kingdoms of magic and wonder, angels and demon. Along the way Minty will face dangers untold but will also become loyal friends with creatures she never knew existed and even befriend and gain the trust of a melodramatic dragon.

During her adventure, Minty is turned into a gnome by an angry leprechaun, who instructs Minty to enter the land of Lyconia, promising to break the spell if Minty returns with, 'A treasure without measure'.

Lyconia is a dangerous place but poor Minty has no choice but to go into the unknown to face whatever awaits there.

Events unfold that mean Minty must retrieve a magical spinning wheel that is in the castle of lost souls. However, this castle hides truly horrifying secrets within its walls, secrets to scare children the world over.

Hello, many thanks for taking time to pop into my profile.

I live in a small former mill town called Colne in Lancashire, UK. Colne is in a rural setting in the shadow of Pendle Hill, the famous hill forever associated with the 1612 Lancashire witch trials. Colne was also the birthplace and home of Wallace Hartley, the band master on the RMS Titanic; Wallace was also one of the few taken back home for their burial.

The spark to write didn't happen to me until my late forties and came from nowhere as I had never any ambitions to write, but liked to read quite a lot. Favourite authors are J.R.R Tolkien, James Herbert and the author who's stories both C.S Lewis and Tolkien would read as children, George Macdonald.

Photography is another hobby of mine and this year I was lucky enough to bag a runners - up spot on the television show, Countryfile and their 2019 calendar, getting a place on the calendar in March as one of the smaller photo's beneath the finalists.

Thanks again for stopping by, I hope you like my works and if you could spare five minutes to write a review on anything you may have read, that really would be very much appreciated. Perhaps you could follow the link to my author page on Facebook and drop me a line or two there, I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,
