about me


I have lived in Salisbury, UK all my life. I love living here as it is so historic and I love anything historical.

I am what you might call a reclusive writer as I love staying in and working on my book or coming on this totally addictive website and dream of one day reaching the top of the ed's desk chart and of course getting that elusive agent/publisher.

If anyone would like me to have a look at their book, please don't hesistate to ask, as long as you don't mind returning the favour and if anyone would like to contact me by email, my address is: sandra.newman24@btinternet.com.

The Crown of Crysaldor

Sandie Newman

After a dark age of three hundred years, an adventure begins to restore Crysaldor. The crown must be found that was thought lost forever.


It is the year 1050. In Crysaldor, a fierce battle rages between King Horius and his evil brother, Dorin. Following the battle’s devastating outcome the kingdom’s name is changed to Dorinia and all talk of Crysaldor, forbidden. As the magic in Crysaldor only works when the king’s crown is complete, Dorin removes its diamonds and throws them away, forcing the kingdom into a dark age. Over time, Crysaldor becomes a legend that only a few remember.

Three hundred years later and the time has finally come for the crown and diamonds to be found. A group of friends including a young girl, a ranger, a pixie, a fairy and a baby dragon, begin a thrilling and perilous adventure that will take them all over Dorinia. As they follow the Unicorns of Alorvia they discover the windy Ever Mountains, the Valley of Fire and the very heart of Crysaldor itself.

Together they must somehow find the courage, determination and strength to find the lost crown and diamonds and restore Crysaldor before the magic fades forever.



Cover by the brilliant Bradley Wind

OMG Dee! This is brilliant! It reads like a published novel. I love how it starts, straight in there, is very clever at slipping in descriptions and just flows so well. I just had to stop and comment and can't wait to get back into it. I love the beginning by the way. How he goes for the bead and en... view book

This is an incredible story, I love the way you seemlessly go from the present day to the past in the first couple of paragraphs, that doesn't always work but does here, very well. I loved the part with Papaw and Kabe on the boat and how Papaw describes things. The part about the cotton candy being ... view book

This is an excellent read, gripping, humourous and flows so well. I especially liked the part at the beginning with the two boys saying 'hello mum' that made me laugh. As I said this flows really well and is intriguing from the word go. Will be back to read more. view book

I have only read a little of this but will certainly be back for more when I have time. It is funny, which I love and you have the gift of putting the reader actually there, travelling with you, it's incredible writing and absolutely riveting. I will be back to read more very soon. On my list. view book
