As it’s charity as yer’ll be needing.’It’s hard being born and raised on a small farm in the harsh, unforgiving 19th-century Midwest.Harder still if, like Charity Molton, you’re an un-worldly and innocent child.But Charity has qualities that surprise everyone – perhaps because they’re qualities everyone else lacks.About the AuthorJon Jacks has written over twenty books, mostly for Young Adults and Children, including Glastonbury Sirens, The Lost Fairy Tale, Sleeping Ugly, and Nyx, Granddaughter of the Night.‘Could there be anything more exciting and rewarding than writing stories that appeal to teenagers?’ Jon says.

‘They want stories that involve them, stories that stretch their already extensive imaginations, stories of magic, romance, action and adventure – all the things that are so sadly lacking in much of today’s adult fiction (The Snow Child and the spectacular Game of Thrones being welcome exceptions).‘New Adult fiction is a world of immortals, guardian angels, vampires, spiritual contact and romance reaching across any form of boundary, even death.

Twilight, The Hunger Games, Immortal Instruments, The Knife of Never Letting Go, Pretties, Fallen, The Forest of Hands and Teeth- even the titles scream out at you that you’re in for an exhilarating ride.‘They’re all stories that, through their seamless intermingling of a reality we can recognise with another, more frightening world, take on an almost fairytale-like quality, much as we see in Dickens’s A Christmas Carol- a story that has been retold many times yet, whether transformed into a modern morality tale or featuring Scrooge McDuck, it still taps into and excites our imagination.‘How many versions of A Christmas Carol can you think of?‘Chances are, you won’t be able to think of them all!’
