The Golden Scarab
The Golden Scarab is my first novel and has taken years to get to where it is today. It is a thoroughly exciting and action-packed adventure that I know will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. I’m confident that it will become a favourite for many children and adults who take the plunge and join the quest.
JJ Sterling is a normal 12 year old, living in a normal house, with a normal family. That is, until a normal day turns his life upside down. One day, he’s visiting his dad at the museum, and the next thing he knows, he’s thrust back in time . . . and he’s battling against an army of living statues with his best friend. This definitely isn’t what he would usually call normal. It seems JJ was in the wrong place at the right time, and now he’s on the most awesome adventure of his life.
All is not well in Ancient Egypt and heroes are needed. An evil force threatens the peace, and JJ and his friends have no choice but to be those heroes. Guided by the King of the Gods, they embark on a desperate quest. They must overcome amazing and dangerous challenges, as they search for the only thing that can save Egypt. A magical amulet known as the Golden Scarab is the key to peace. It must not fall into the hands of evil or it will spell disaster.
Heroes take on villains in this action-packed race against time. Who will be first to find it? Only time will tell.

HERE’S THE BUZZ
“Look out Rick Riordan (author of The Kane Chronicles), you’ve got some competition … This book was, quite simply put, a rockin’ good time. The story is solid, the characters are likable, the action is non-stop … I would recommend this book to boys and girls aged 8+…”
★★★★★ review – Mother Daughter Book Reviews
“I was enthralled by it and happily look forward to reading the next book in the series. … One thing is certain: it can be classified as good entertainment. It reminded me in many ways of the Indiana Jones series of movies, and … would make a very decent movie itself. I strongly recommend this for any reluctant readers in the target age group, with the understanding that mom and dad will also want to read it.”

“… I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written adventure novel for young people. The action was fast paced, and in places extremely gripping … I’m very much looking for the next novel in the series about JJ, Linc and Rani. Highly recommended.”
