She wrote the Wolven (Wolfling) series, wich i L-O-V-E!!!!!!!

I Really love her books and the Bookcovers are gorgeous! They are a bit 3D. If you move them you see a boy changing into a Wolf. I really love that! I love the fact that Di is very active on facebook. She loves dogs and one of dogs looked like a wolf;-)

(This article is written by me & Di Toft)

 Di: The books are about a boy called Nat and his ‘dog’ Woody, who turns out to be a legendary shapeshifting Wolf whose ancestors fought alongside Richard the Lionheart in the Crusades. We learn that a corrupt government agency is hunting Woody to fuse his special Wolven DNA with that of a werewolf, to create indestructible fighting machines for 21st century wars.

Tell us, what you want to tell us;-)

I’d like to thank you Tazzy, for taking an interest in my work. I’d also like to tell you about a book called Cat Magick that I wrote last year. It’s only available on Amazon in English at the moment, but it’s a cracking tale of cats, witches, and hellcats in 17th century England. It’s funny, scary and exciting, I’m very proud of it. In the meantime, thanks all for reading this, and hopefully, there’ll be another book out soon. I try to keep my writing as entertaining as possible, I figure that if I have fun writing something (and occasionally get frightened if if writing at the dead of night and my imagination runs away with me) then my rradders wll enjoy it too. And maybe just get  a little bit freaked out.
