Author Biography

The writing career of Jemima Pett can be traced back to when she was 8 years old. The evidence is a small booklet found in her mother’s box of treasures, written in a very childish hand, entitled "The Little Stream".
Jemima has created articles and event reports for newsletters and magazines ever since, but early fiction attempts failed for want of suitable inspiration: characters and plot eluded her. She had a career in business and in environmental research which kept her chained to a desk for many years. Determined to keep writing, she ended up doing manuals, reports, science papers, blogs, journals, anything and everything that kept the words flowing. Finally the characters jumped into her head with stories that needed to be told….

She now lives in a village in Norfolk with her guinea pigs, the first of whom, Fred, George, Victor and Hugo, provided the inspiration for her stories.

Book Review

The Princelings of the East is an enchanting tale that will delight boys and be very much enjoyed by girls. This fourth to sixth grade chapter book will keep young readers enthralled for hours on end. You will find well-rounded characters, an interesting plot and many adventures within the pages of this book. I truly enjoyed the tale and loved the telling. It relates a completely new idea in a medieval fantasy setting. The plot will be enjoyed by all the inventors or thinkers in your home. It will be a welcome volume in any home, school, or library shelves.

George and his almost identical twin Fred, live in a castle where they work hard at not being seen. For some years now, the power is being sucked from their castle and they wonder who or what is the cause. George, being the inventor, and his brother, Fred, the thinker, unite their talents to figure the answers to this dilemma.

They have never been beyond the marshes that surround their castle, but they both know they need to go and see if other castles have the same problem. In their travels, they meet some interesting people: princelings and others that will help them discover what is afoot. Meanwhile, they learn much from those they meet.

The Princelings of the East is a medieval fantasy with a touch of time travel that is very well written and easy to understand. It stays on age level and keeps the reader alert for the thought provoking results. What a wonderful tale with a great story. Well done.
