about me

I am very new to writing in some ways...this is the first attempt I have made to write a book but have written many short passages (mainly fictional) to use as a teaching point for KS2 pupils. I am a passionate reader and true believer in developing the imagination of children. My ideas for this book, have come almost totally from make-believing with my own children - infact the names of characters and places in it are constantly used in our household, or on walks together. Any feedback would be greatly received!

Beyond the Clouds

Kate Curtin

Maisy, aged seven, constantly insists she has dragons living in her mouth, much to her older brother Jack’s annoyance!


Little do they realise how close to the truth Maisy actually is, and the adventures they are about to encounter.

Before long, they meet Nertitia and Emeraldo, two dragons who desperately need their help to conquer the evil Thundor, who has already succeeded in destroying part of their beautiful kingdom beyond the clouds. As well as destroying Ionia, Thundor has also stolen the enchanted Rainbow Jewels and has imprisoned the King and Queen of Ionia.

Will Jack and Maisy have the courage to help them? Can they stop Thundor from destroying the whole of Ionia? And will they be able to withstand the perilous voyage they are about to face? Only time will tell…

Hi Benedict, I've just read the first 4 chapters of your book and I'm hooked! Ch1 I love the mixture of emotion, tension and humour you create and think your characterisation is excellent. The relationships between Bart and his gang is fab - a cross between Jack Sparrow and his crew and Robin... view book

Hi Christine, I can imagine teenagers would love this! I was sucked right into the storyline and want to know what the connection is between the main characters and the dreams.

What a talent you have - so clever to be able to bring the lesser characters into the forefron... view book

Hi Harry, I'm hooked! I love your style of writing - your humour reminds me of Ben Elton and the relationship between AJ and Bench is kind of like the TV series 'An Idiot Abroad'. I love it! I'm so impressed at how easily you intermingle their crass, laid back attitude with real, raw emotion and tr... view book
