About Darren Lewis:
Darren Lewis was born in Cardiff in 1975 and now lives with his family in Norfolk. Although an avid reader of many genres it wasn't until his daughter, Ellie aged 6, asked for a story of her own that inspired him to put pen to paper.
"Ellie and I would like to make up bedtime stories, mainly about a kangaroo that traveled the world and have adventures."
These bedtime stories would lead to a first book in the trilogy. 'Ellie and the Rabbits' in which our young heroine meets a group of talking rabbits.
"My main goals were to induce a sense of wonder for my daughter, a sense of purpose and the importance of helping others."
A short book of poems for children followed and the sequel 'Ellie and the Dragon' was published in August and the trilogy was completed and published in December 2013 in 'Ellie and the Battle.'
Darren was interviewed for his local newspaper recently, for more details please see www.derehamtimes.co.uk (please search for Darren Lewis)

Daddy nearly lost his fingers today! He was trimming the bushes in our new garden when CLANG! He tried to trim a metal gate!
Daddy looked through the gate and saw a big, old abandoned house. He thinks its haunted but that's silly. He tried to open the gate but it wouldn't budge so we'll oil it tomorrow.
It's quite exciting and scary! What could be in there? It gives me chills thinking about it!
