A Gypsy curse that must be broken, a dangerous secret that cannot be revealed… 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” storybook 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, my passion for writing could not be suppressed and it eventually burst out in the form of Clara, the main protagonist in the ‘Full Moon‘ series.

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, ‘A Gypsy Secret’ in July 2018, and ‘Gypsy Legends’ in December of the same year.
Living in the beautiful county of Shropshire, I have plenty of inspiration for Clara’s adventures and am in the process of writing a fifth book in the ‘Full Moon‘ series, yet to be titled. Including a new nemesis for Clara and her friends to overcome, it’s scheduled for publication in the latter half of 2019.
