The first thing people ask me when I say I’ve written a book is, “What’s it about?” As I answer them I find myself adding more than that. It’s a personal thing, writing a book, and you find yourself saying why as well. I didn’t just want to write a story, I wanted to say something. This book is more than a story; it’s a message and a dream which I hope you will breathe in and savour as much as I have. It’s just the beginning.
Without spoiling it for you, it’s a story of a young woman’s desire to make her mark, to try to change the things she sees wrong with her society – our society. She does this by founding an organisation called The Collective, which draws people together through the power of their positive thoughts, to affect that change. She gives this gift to young people, seeing that they have little to inspire or motivate them and this is where a group of children become the driving force in the story. They learn to work together and to work with a benevolent light force called The Brightness, who empowers them and inspires them.
All is not what it seems, however, as a sinister plot is unveiled within the realm of the Castle where they have learnt to come together. It’s an other-worldly place, created by the imagination of the dynamic and resourceful Scarlett Tang and infused by the imaginations of countless young people. It’s a place of possibility, of hope, which is now under threat.
Perhaps I am a dreamer – I like to think I am – but I am also a believer. I believe in no limits and in the potential for so much more than we see around us. That’s why I wrote this book. What do you believe in?
