Martii writes unique stories for young readers that will fascinate, entertain and spark the imagination.
Books are amazing places where anything is possible. Within their covers, books hold worlds to explore, adventure in and wonder at. Martii creates books that are doorways to the fantastical worlds that are bought to life by imagination.
Martii’s life has been enriched by books since she was very young. Over the years, as a mum and grandma, teacher and teacher-librarian, she has had the privilege of sharing her love of stories and story-telling with many young people. These experiences have given her precious insight into what makes stories enjoyable for young readers. And this has inspired her to create her own unique stories for young people so that they can explore the strange, twisty and wonderful ‘what if’ worlds that are just beyond the here and now.

She has been asked by her family’s guardians, to learn the secrets of their magic and help them retrieve what remains of the sleeping potion from the evil alchemists who created it. With these last few drops they hope to create a cure and set Vreni and her family free from the curse.
