The Bellamy Bird has received a great review from AusTARS, The Arthur Ransome Society, Australia, the organisation that celebrates the work of wonderful children's book writer, Arthur Ransome.
'Time travel, sailing and a mystery...make for an entertaining tale!'
This review means a great deal to me as I am a huge fan of Swallows and Amazons and the subsequent books, (my favourite being Pigeon Post and Coot Club). I would recommend them to anyone who loves British stories, sailing, or who has a sense of nostalgia for simpler times!
I am pleased to announce that if you bought 'A Bella Street Mystery: The Secret Formula' or 'A Bella Street Mystery: Doc Gutson's Revenge' as a paperback on Amazon, you can now download a free copy of the ebook as a THANK YOU for your support! There is also a special edition of the first two books in the series coming soon with a great new cover. Stand by!

Clare grew up in Constable Country not far from East Trimley where Kate Summers and Detective Vicky Allard solve their local mysteries and where The Bellamy Bird is set. Clare lived for many years on a street in Manhattan just like the street where Bella and Felix live although she was never chased through Central Park at night by a couple of failed fashion-world gangsters. Clare now lives on a high cliff next to a lighthouse in Australia where she plots and writes with her faithful chocolate labrador by her side.
