how it started

Jem's story...

I’m Jem McCusker, author of the Stone Guardians and the Rise of Eden, book one of the Stone Guardians Fantasy Series.

I live in Brisbane, Australia with my husband and our two children. My eldest son, Sean asked me to tell him a story instead of reading one. I didn’t know where to start so I asked him what it should be about. He said he wanted it to be in Ireland because that’s where daddy is from and granny and granda too. Right, I thought, no pressure here. I’d half thrown something together in my head when he then requested it be about a frog.

As it goes, I managed to craft up a little something that has a taste of Ireland and a quirky frog with long legs and personality to spare. I enjoyed the story so much that I created a cast of  accompanying characters, a dash of humour, a lot of adventure and a large dose of imagination.
