Every family has its secrets, but Clara’s family secret is, frankly, unbelievable… Clara…
I am D.A. McGrath, author of children’s fiction.
I was born in Chester, England. I became hooked on books after winning a “Winnie the Pooh” story in a school competition at the age of seven; and so, began my lifelong passion for reading and writing.
My career initially took me in another direction, as an accountant in the National Health Service, however, an ever-intensifying need to make up stories led to the creation of Clara, the main protagonist of the ‘Full Moon’ series, in 2011.
After hobby writing for five years, I decided that I enjoyed being an author more than anything else in the world, and so began my professional writing career. My first book, “Under the Light of a Full Moon” was published in September 2017 and was followed by ‘A Gypsy Curse’ in February 2018 and ‘A Gypsy Secret’ in July of the same year.
I am in the process of writing the fourth book in the ‘Full Moon’ series, which I’m planning to publish in December 2018, and I have an outline for a fifth book, introducing a new villain, which is scheduled for 2019.
Coming Soon! Christmas (okay, there, I said it!) is very heavily on my mind at the moment because I am getting ready to publish my fourth book in the Full Moon series “Gypsy Legends” in December 2018, and the story is set during the winter holiday/Christmas break! And, goodness, I’ve got a lot to do […]
