Elijah Barns

Born via a woman, in a cross-fire hurricane, the Lancastrian Elijah Barns was raised by a Border Collie and subsequently bequeathed the soul of a black, Native American Scotsman that loathed buttons and loved animals.

The books you see you before you has been tormenting and fermenting the already tormented and fermented mind of it’s author for too many moons and could no longer be contained.

Therefore, blessings must go to Lisa from Green Cat Books for having the courage and fortitude to believe and let it run free.

If you would care to pry into the psyche of the author, as an exercise in somehow understanding his tickage, his thoughts and inspirations are steadfastly rooted in the following locations, objects and folk of lore, for which, he assures us, he is eternally grateful and would recommend highly.

Book 1: A Bustle In The Hedgerow

You are standing in present day northern England in the village of Windlestraws, up in the very hills that once were home to the local witches of the 17th century.

Jet Splinters, a handsome, mysterious yet naive black cat has been sent there by his master to meet with the beautiful and unsuspecting witch, Jinny Lane.

Whilst just around the corner, the faeries that dwell in the hedgerow are in need of Jinny’s help to prevent a despicable developer from establishing a golf course on their sacred domain.

If you think you have a notion of how this tale might unfold … think again.
