'MOOJAG and the LOST MEMORIES'
READERS' FAVORITE 5 STAR REVIEWED 2023
The stand-alone sequel to our award-winning neurodivergent, dystopian cli-fi mystery ‘Moojag and the Auticode Secret’
When Nema returns to Gajoomdom, she discovers three forgetful grannies who have totally lost track of time. If she and Moojag can’t help them remember, everyone’s memories are in danger. But turns out not everyone is exactly who they thought they were. Who will they rescue? Will they rescue them in time?
The Lost Memories, inspired by the author's gran, dementia, and the effects of a pandemic on people with disabilities, shows us the power of memory, the importance of forgiveness, and the value in letting go.
A multigenerational story for readers 9yrs and over.
“Vivid, vibrant, compelling, laugh out loud… An imaginative futuristic adventure that draws you in and keeps you hooked. But it's the characters who win your heart.”
READERS' FAVORITE, 5 star review.
“A really great book …captivating adventure. The world is really dense with really fun and whimsical pieces of technology, but still there is a real sense of peril that runs through the story. I have never been so scared of a marshmallow chamber! I love how it pushes back on the idea of older people being useless, not by erasing the things they may find difficult, but by highlighting their strengths …the things they still remember end up being as important as the things they have forgotten."
Alex Falase-Koya - Award-winning author, MARV / BREAKFAST CLUB ADVENTURES

'GOALKEEPER: Memoir of Poet Peter Street (Games, Secrets, Epilepsy & Love)'
RUBERY BOOK AWARD SHORTLISTEE 2023
One 'alone, but not lonely' boy's triumph over adversity, motivated by his dream of becoming a professional footballer and a longing for truth and connection.
Street's childhood memoir is a sensitive and honest portrayal, through a poetic autistic lens, of growing up with undiagnosed autism and epilepsy in an unconventional family during the 1950s and 60s. A unique and vivid social document of the period, highlighting much of the discrimination still faced by minority and disabled communities today.
