12 children’s books by the writer and illustrator

Beth Webb is an avid reader of traditional folk stories and is fascinated by the links between landscape, history and myth. As a teacher of creative writing to children, teenagers and adults, Beth often used a reconstructed Iron Age village on the Somerset Levels (The 'Winter Seas' in Star Dancer, Book 1 of this series) and the nearby Wookey Hole Caves, to help young writers to find inspiration. As she worked, the character of Tegen began to grow within her imagination, taking shape and finding her own story. Months of solid historical research followed. Beth investigated as much as she could about the late Iron Age, what people ate, wore and how they lived, but also how they thought. She read every book she could find on historical druidry, and consulted present day druids. She has walked almost everywhere Tegen walked, exploring the River Severn, climbing Cadair Idris in the fog, visiting the Hill of Tara in County Meath, the coast of Anglesey (Mona) and even tracking down the site of Tegen's heartbreak near Alderly Edge. Beth Webb is an author, performance storyteller, broadcaster, journalist and creative writing tutor. She lives and writes on the edge of the Somerset Levels and has published books for young children (Junkyard Dragon), older children (The Dragons of Kilve and The Fleabag Stories). The Star Dancer Quartet, a major historical fantasy based in late Iron Age Britain was originally written for teenagers but the books quickly became appreciated by adults as well. The richness of this unusual and meticulously-researched series has captivated readers around the world, earning stunning reviews.
