silver-linings

Book Strap-line: ‘The Mendip Hills have a secret they don’t want you to know about.  But I know, Sam Johnson has found out, and so will you if you read Jae Malone’s fantasy adventure trilogy ‘The Winterne Series’.  Suitable for independent readers and grown up children of all ages’.

Synopsis: Christmas is approaching and for 14 year old Sam Johnson it promises to be the best ever… until Fate turns his world upside down. Spending the holiday with little known relatives in a quiet Somerset village is not exactly his idea of a good time. His new uncle leaves the house each night soon after phantom lights appear in the nearby forest. The local bully is out for his blood. And why does Sam think he can hear a wolf howling in the night?

Reviews:
Silver Linings (Volume One): ‘An intriguing read. This book would work well on the big screen.’ Alan Clifford – BBC Radio
‘Trilogy’s stirring start.’ Newark Advertiser.
‘An imaginative adventure with a dark streak.’ Jeremy Lewis – Nottingham Post

About Jay Malone:
jae profile

Jae was born in Isleworth, West London then lived in Essex and Suffolk before spending the rest of her childhood in Sherborne, Dorset, close to the Somerset border.  During those happy years, a visit to Wookey Hole caves and an inspiring History teacher at her school, Gerald Pitman, sparked her interest in the facts and myths that surround the Mendip Hills.  Another teacher, Anne Osmond, was equally inspiring with her love of literature and encouraged Jae in her first attempts at writing.

In her early teens Jae moved back to London and began writing her first book – a story set in Ancient Egypt based on the life of Queen Hatshepsut – it was never finished!

As the years went on and career, marriage and children became her priorities, Jae forgot her writing but never her love of reading and almost always had at least one good book on the go; in particular, historical or fantasy novels.

Years later she moved back to the West Country to the village of Butleigh in Somerset, just four miles from Glastonbury and seven from Wells and fell in love with the area all over again but, unfortunately this was to be a short stay as the family moved to the west coast of Scotland.

Later, Jae met and married her second husband, David, and in 1996, the family moved back to England settling in Nottingham where they have lived ever since near to her grown up children and two grandchildren.

Having originally written ‘Silver Linings’ in 2005, and chose to take the self-publishing route in 2006, Jae founded New Writers UK to support little known independently published authors.  Later that year she organised their first book festival and has continued to arrange and coordinate annual events and creative writing competitions ever since.  NWUK now has well over one hundred members throughout the UK and overseas.

Since writing her books and setting up New Writers UK, Jae (under her given name of Julie Malone), is a regular on local radio, writes articles for newspapers and magazines in the Nottinghamshire area and for the New Writers UK quarterly newsletter.

Reviews: Queen of Diamonds (Volume Two) : Jae gets better with every book she writes and could easily give J K Rowling a good run for her money.’ Newark Advertiser.

‘Jae Malone’s imagination is on the same wave length as legendary J R R Tolkien. She writes with vividness, intensity and sophistication.’- Amazon

fools-goldFool’s Gold

Synopsis: In this third volume of ‘The Winterne Series’ as the end of year Prom approaches, Sam discovers Jenny’s keeping secrets and an exotic visitor arrives putting an old friend in danger. Elven family history, a threat to a queen and a missing elf become entangled in this tale of greed and retribution. Above ground there’s danger. Below, there’s a wedding, conflict and betrayal. And all before summer begins!

Review: Fool’s Gold (Volume Three): Jae has a fluid and easily accessible writing style, while the stories feature richly layered plots where high fantasy, school-year tribulations and dark nefarious deeds interweave. This pitches it nicely into the YA range and also confident top-primary and early KS2 readers. The books have a broad appeal. – Steve Bowkett. ‘Writer, storyteller, educational consultant, Member of Society of Authors and National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE)’.
