About the Author:

Dr Jean Flitcroft, born in 1964, lives in Dublin with her husband and three boys. She attended Holy Child School, Killiney and studied science in University College Dublin. On being awarded a Welcome Scholarship she went on to Magdalen College, Oxford University where she obtained her doctorate. She started as a script writer for medical and scientific films and later became a travel writer when her obsession with travel won out. It was on these journeys around the world that she started writing books for children. The Cryptid Files: Loch Ness is the first book of a series that covers the globe in pursuit of the weird and wonderful creatures of cryptozoology.

Review:

'Vanessa is back with a thrilling adventure in Mexico, where her courage and intelligence are tested to the limit by the terrifying presence of el Chupacabra: a creature that feasts on the blood of animals. Jean Flitcroft has written another wonderful book, one that immerses you in the heat and scents of Mexico. It is so suspenseful you'll find yourself missing your bus stop because you can't bring yourself to put the book away!' - Conor Kostick, bestselling author '... [a] fast-moving tale.' The Irish Times 'Wonderfully atmospheric writing ... gives that prickly-back-of-the-neck-feeling ... Another gripping yarn that pulls the reader in to a mythical, exotic world. It is an assured piece of storytelling' Books Ireland
