Synopsis:

Between Two Worlds is the compelling and beautifully-crafted sequel to Beyond the Hedge, which showcased magical realism at its finest and introduced readers to a fantastical land like no other with deliciously eccentric characters who live in our hearts forever.

About the Author:

Scottish author Mairi Craw graduated with an MA in English Literature and History of Fine Art from Glasgow University. She worked for BBC World Service in London before starting her own publicity and design business which she ran from her home in Dorset for several years. Mairi began her writing career on a whim and quickly discovered she had a unique way with words, a passion for story-telling and a limitless imagination. She has never studied creative writing and plans nothing in advance. The novels unfold as she writes, and characters introduce themselves along the way. This allows Mairi an enormous amount of freedom and gives her writing a freshness and immediacy that is often hard to find in an overcrowded literary world. As far as she is concerned, there are no rules and there are endless avenues to be explored. Between Two Worlds, the sequel to her first novel, Beyond the Hedge, is the second reality-based fantasy inspired by her childhood in Scotland, and continues the adventures of Sandy Henderson and her wildly eccentric fairy friends. Mairi moved to the Pyrénées-Orientales in southern France with her family and a lively bunch of animals in 2007 and Between Two Worlds was written in this magical, inspirational part of the world. The cover image is Mairi's own work and she has already embarked on a third novel in the series.
