Author and Publisher: Robin Chambers
Publication Date: April 28, 2013
“Gordon Bennett was born on 7th August 1999 with extraordinary powers. Where have those powers come from? Who – or what – is “Zack”…? His mother begins to notice that Gordon is different when he speaks his first words at just 5 months old and that’s before the really strange things begin to happen!

Amazing Grace, Book 2
Publication Date: April 28, 2013
Amazing Grace chronicles the way in which a girl born on 25th December 1998 plays an increasingly important part in Gordon’s life (and he in hers). Grace can read minds, and she has healing hands…
Could her father really have been a God? How can she have two mums? And what has the most powerful wizard our world has ever known to do with all this?
The answer lies in the Land of the Forever Young (and of the Dead); but they can only get there by leaving their bodies behind…
How will Gordon’s parents react when he tells them the whole truth? How important in the scheme of things are their best friends Nick and Miranda? And quite importantly: how can the four of them help YOU to write really good stories…?
Can the clock be turned both backwards and forwards? And can their guardian angels help Gordon’s dad catch a serial killer…?
Book 2 ends on 27th March 2011 (so they are still in year 7) in a “magical” dell in Wales: where Gordon and Grace aren’t – though their bodies are. And what has Nick just found at the end of a rainbow…?
The Quality of Mercy, Book 3
Publication Date: April 28, 2013
The Quality of Mercy picks the story up precisely where Book 2 left off. Where were Gordon and Grace, while their bodies were in that dell in Wales…?

Can Gordon and Grace take on the combined might of wicked wizardry and witchcraft in Chester? And what very interesting discovery about Miranda and Nick does Gordon make along the way…?

Gifts from the Gods, Book 4

Gifts from the Gods will give you some idea of what can happen when “gods” decide to show themselves…
How on earth can Gordon help hominids on a planet many light years away…?
When is a pony not a pony? And what is Groc the Knocker up to now…?
They need to team up; but how can they when the girls are in the grounds of a haunted stately home in Scotland and the boys are in the dungeons of a mediaeval Castle in Ireland? The answer has a lot to do with Lucifer’s rod…
What has the evil Goddess Morrigan LaFaye kept screaming for centuries at the top of a tall tower, where the walls ooze oil and look eerily like skin? And why does the God of the Sea feel the need to get involved?
And if that wasn’t enough, this is the part of the story where The Super Six become The Eight Team. What are Gordon’s sixteen greats grandmother and a lost soul from the sixth century doing getting in on the act?
What “gifts” might the gods be disposed to give: to help in the fight to make the world a better place…?

Carmen, Goddess of The Damned, does not take the loss of her daughter lying down. How will she be revenged? And how next will she seek to destroy the children who were born to heal the world?

About the Author:
Once upon a time –a long time ago – I was born in Bootle (Liverpool 20) in the UK. There was a war on, but I ignored it and got on with the business of growing up in challenging circumstances. Later, I wanted to follow in the footsteps of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis but instead was plunged into the maelstrom of inner city education as a teacher of English, then as a headteacher. I had a brief go at writing for children in the 1970s and was published by Penguin and Granada. I promised myself I would write something really good when I retired and had the time to do it properly.
It was only after I narrowly survived a murder attempt in Belize at the age of 69 that I realised how easy it is to die without accomplishing a cherished ambition. So I set to work on “Myrddin’s Heir”: the epic story I will leave behind. The first six books are now in the Kindle Store and on Smashwords. Book 1 is called “A Wizard of Dreams”. It’s free on Smashwords and price-matched on Amazon…
This is a long story for bright children from 10–110 years of age. That isn’t everybody.
**Note** these books have been included in my Holiday Blog series because some of the action takes place during the holidays.
