As a child, Tricia loved reading and finding out what would happen next. She turned that love of books to writing for children. Her stories are geared to middle grade but she doesn't stop there. Find out what inspires her to write and how she deals with the changes in the publishing world on my blog at

About the Author:
When Laura Maw was a child, her favorite activities were going to the ocean and picking out another stack of books from the library. She loved reading from a very young age and could never seem to satisfy her craving for another new adventure, another new imagination landscape. Writing is a passion that seemed to come naturally with her love of reading. She too wanted to be able to help someone through a bad day, or to have a unique and thrilling experience on a good day, through the written communication of a story. She has a very vivid imagination that often takes her on wondrous adventures in her dreams. In fact, the idea for Bubba’s Balloon came to her in the form of a very funny dream. She woke up laughing and felt that it was a story that must be shared with others. The character of Ollie was even developed through daydreaming about Bubba’s adventures.

Laura Maw has a B.A. Honors Degree in Mass Communication with a Minor in Psychology and a Minor in Philosophy from Carleton University. Currently, she lives on Vancouver Island with her husband and Tuxedo kitty. She has also lived in Ontario and her childhood was in Nova Scotia. Laura feels truly blessed to have lived on both of Canada’s beautiful coasts.

On a story about how even if you aren't the strongest, the most nimble or the bravest, you are still very good enough just by being you. {I have a slight problem with this story ...}

As a Child were you ever told; you're not big enough or you're to little or you're to young etc. This is a timeless story all children experience in their youth.  Follow the beautiful illustrations as this story unfolds. Book 2 from a series.

Bob is the youngest and smallest little boy in his family. Although Bob is always eager to help no one will give him a chance. It seems no one ever thinks Bob is old enough or big enough and so Bob gets left behind until one very exciting day all that changed.

Pages: 322
Genre: Children's Sci-fi Adventure

Who was the mysterious Hector Lightfoot? What was he up to when he disappeared, and who were the two ghosts once seen in his house? School friends Jamie and Todd are destined to find out when they go to London to spend a weekend with Jamie’s Uncle Simon, who now lives in that very house. Soon after they arrive, Jamie has a frightening encounter with the two ghosts. Hector, a veteran from the First Afghan War, joined a covert expedition to China, and afterwards worked on a secret Government project in an underground lab at the British Museum. He vanished suddenly, and was never heard from again. Simon takes the boys to the lab, where they find a strange contraption – which, unknown to any of them, is a time-travel device. When the building is struck by lightning, the device is energised, and sends the boys back in time to the year 1862. There, surrounded by danger and exposed to disease, they are sucked into a life of crime in order to survive. Only if they can find Hector will they have any chance of getting home again, but he's gone into hiding. As Jamie and Todd struggle to find him, Jamie becomes convinced that the two ghosts he saw earlier are following them…
