I write fiction and non-fiction, usually for school-aged readers but not always. I can write in Indonesian but I’m better at English.

Tiger Stone is a mystery adventure story set in fourteenth century Java.

According to John Nolan, reviewer at the Children’s Book Council of Australia, “Tiger Stone is a harmonious blend of mystery, adventure and the supernatural which skillfully introduces the lower to middle secondary school reader to a fascinating, if little known, time, place and culture.”

You will find a sample chapter, teacher resources and more information on the Tiger Stone website.

Tiger Stone, is available from booktopia.com or you can order it at your local book shop. If you would like to order a copy directly please email info@derynmansell.com – I’ll even sign it for you. The cost is AU$14 plus postage but if you are ordering in Australia you get free postage until I run out of the prepaid postbags that I had forgotten I had and rediscovered in a recent flurry of decluttering.
