This is an exciting adventure book for boys aged 8 -14. It’s all based on a house which I often walked past when I lived in Essex. Why had it been deserted? I made up my own story to answer that question.
Available from the same sources as the previous blog.

These three books can stand alone, but are a series about three children (two boys and a girl) left orphaned during the 1994 genocide. The fictional adventures are based on my experiences helping with children in such circumstances. They are enjoyed by both boys and girls, suitable for 7 – 12 years.
They are published by Dernier Publishing, available from firstname.lastname@example.org or by ordering at W.H. Smiths or Waterstones or any Christian bookshop.
As well as being exciting stories, these books give an insight for children of life in central Africa.
This book is no longer in print, although some copies are held by me and also available through Amazon. It was my first biography and tells the story of a Ugandan child who was knocked off his bicycle by a fish lorry and left for dead in a ditch………..the story of his subsequent life has been amazing. I still hear regularly from him and am very proud of all his acheivements.
This book is available through Amazon & is published by Authentic, USA and now distributed through IVP. It tells the story how a lad born into a poor family in the Congo eventually becomes the Archbishop of Rwanda, helping to unify and strengthen the Anglican Church in Rwanda after the 1994 genocide.
