Sam and the Sea Witch is a dark, mysterious, and psychologically gripping tale about a boy who lives in a Cornish seaside town. It contains a background of myth and legend, within the Cornish setting, which makes Sam’s story highly atmospheric.
Fourteen year old Sam Camponara is used to getting into trouble; in fact he enjoys the buzz. So when his best friend, Johnny, tells him an old tale about The Sea Witch, Sam sees an opportunity for adventure. But sailing the stolen boat off the Cornish coast in the middle of the night goes terribly wrong and the sea witch turns out to be horribly real. Keeping Johnny as hostage, the sea witch tells Sam he has until the next new moon to find and deliver her missing pendant, lost fifty years earlier. But will he be able to find the pendant in time, will anyone believe Sam’s wild story, and does he even believe it himself?
I am a writer, an artist, a garment printer, a qualified teacher, a husband, and father of three lovely children. I was born and live in the North West of England.
I graduated with a BA (hons) in Primary Education with qualified Teacher’s Status in 2007.
I have always had a fascination for writing and have written stories all my life. However, it was my night school English tutor who recognised my writing talent and suggested I write horror stories.
Cornwall is where I first had the idea for Sam and The Sea Witch. It is the first in a series. All my books are about children in fantastic, and sometimes, harrowing situations.
Some of the other books I have written include Sam and the Beast of Bodmin Moor, The Claw, and The Eternal Flame. They are all the same genre, and I hope each carries a message.
