Katrina Charman
Katrina Charman has wanted to be a kid’s writer ever since the age of eleven, when her school teacher set her class with the task of writing an epilogue to Roald Dahl’s “Matilda”. Her teacher thought that her writing was good enough to send off to Roald Dahl himself. But sadly, she never got a reply, however the experience ignited her love of writing and reading.

However Poppy is not the only one that is in need of a home and before long their house is filled with cats. With Mum at her wits’ end, Isla needs to come up with a plan and quick!

“The Ember Stone” is the first novel in the “Last Firehawk” series and was released in 2017. Horrible darkness is spreading all across Perodia. Thorn, who is a powerful vulture, uses dark magic (as well as his dark army of spies) to destroy this magical land. Tag, a young owl, might be the only one able to save it. Tag dreams about one day becoming a brave warrior, however he’s small.

Tag and his best friend, Skyla (a squirrel) meet the last firehawk, in this first book. Together, these three friends learn about this magical stone. Could this stone be powerful enough to defeat Thorn?

“The Crystal Caverns” is the second novel in the “Last Firehawk” series and was released in 2017. Tag, Skyla, and Blaze go to the Crystal Caverns looking for a piece of the magical Ember Stone, however they don’t know quite where it is, and they are not the only ones that are searching for it.

The powerful vulture, called Thorn, is also hunting for the stone. And is after Blaze, too. Thorn’s dark magic is rapidly spreading across Perodia, so these friends have to move fast in order to reach this stone.

“The Titanic” is the first novel in the “Survival Tails” series and was released in 2018. Pets are facing danger on the Titanic in this first thrilling installment of “Survival Tails”.

When Mutt, loyal dog, learns that his owner and best buddy Alice will soon set sail on the RMS Titanic, without him, he’s determined to follow her across the ocean. With the help of Leon the rat, Mutt is able to sneak aboard, however it is not long before Clara, the captain’s cat, finds this stowaway.

Reluctantly, Clara agrees to help Mutt track Alice down, on the condition that he help look after this trio of abandoned kittens that she found in a lifeboat. However once the unthinkable happens and this so called unsinkable ship hits this iceberg, Mutt and his new buddies must race against time to reunite with their humans, and also survive.

“Endurance in Antarctica” is the second novel in the “Survival Tails” series and was released in 2018. This group of sled dogs race in order to survive this perilous journey across Antarctica in this exhilarating sequel in “Survival Tails”.

Samson, a sled dog, wants nothing more than to just be a part of Ernest Shackleton’s historic voyage to Antarctica. He wants to feel the snow underneath his paws and the wind upon his face while racing across the fields of ice, and most of all he wants to help out his humans while they find eternal glory while charting the continent. Bummer, his fellow sled dog, only wants to get through this voyage in one piece. Why would he want to face down some dangerous, icy wasteland when he can just stay inside his kennel, all safe and warm?

When the Endurance, their ship, gets trapped in sea ice, leaving the men and dogs without a way home, their journey becomes not about personal glory, but survival. Bummer, Samson, and the rest of the dogs are going to have to set aside their differences and band together in order to rescue their humans. And themselves.

With engaging nonfiction back matter which delves into the fascinating true story behind this book, this one’s sure to keep readers entertained as the second installment in a series of action packed animal adventures.

“World War II” is the third novel in the “Survival Tails” series and was released in 2019. One brave messenger pigeon enlists this group of heroic zoo animals to aid him in completing his mission in an informative and thrilling read.

World War II is raging across Europe and the German army’s got its sights set on England. Francis, a messenger pigeon, carries some important notes back and forth between England and her allies, wanting nothing more than to do his part for the war effort. However when Francis gets injured on one assignment to deliver the most important message of the entire war, one that warns about a coming attack on Britain itself, he finds himself now stranded right in the middle of the London Zoo without a way to complete this mission.

Ming, the world famous panda, has thus far managed to avoid getting caught up in this war. However that’s getting tougher to do while the zoo suffers under its dwindling food rations and German air raids threaten this city each night. Francis lands in Ming’s enclosure, she knows that she is unable to just stand by and do nothing. Enlisting help from a kind zookeeper and a rather resourceful troop of monkeys, Ming fights to help Francis recover enough strength to complete his mission.

However once the war does arrive in London finally, it threatens everybody in the zoo. Ming, Francis, and the rest of the animals have to band together to save themselves. Possibly even London itself as well.
