I'm a writer of children's picture books and two novels. You can find out more about my first YA novel, THE RIDDLES OF EPSILON at www.riddlesofepsilon.com, while
Other details of my books can be found if you type in my name to google. As for me, I'm generally considered a bit spooky, a bit mad or both. Maybe I am...

My new novel The Hunt for the Seventh comes out of September 30th 2008!

“There are many wonders in this world that will remain quite beyond your reach unless, in fact, you reach for them.”
Christine Morton-Shaw, The Riddles of Epsilon

“What the tide takes away, the tide brings back.”
Christine Morton-Shaw, The Riddles of Epsilon

“There was no answer. I looked up.
Epsilon’s light shone out onto a picture on the wall.
A round picture in a square frame.
The golden symbol of O. The One. The symbol of perfection.
The symbol of eternity. The One without beginning or end.
The One who is the beginning and the end.
The One to whom time is meaningless. The One who could do whatever he wanted with time. What had Mrs. Shiling said, in the kitchen, a year ago?
“Time is nothing. Not to him. A moment in time. What is that t him?”
Quivering from head to toe, I stared up at that simple O.”
Christine Morton-Shaw, The Riddles of Epsilon

Alyssa Thanks so much for adding me as a friend! I loved The Riddles of Epsilon and could hardly belive it when I saw you had requested to be my friend. I read your book in an evening and then bought it and read it out loud to my little brother. I didn't know about The Hunt for the Seventh untill now but I can't wait to read it as well. I know they say don't judge a book by its cover but just looking at the cover of The Hunt, it looks like a cool book. :)


Meghan Thanks for adding me. I really enjoyed The Riddles of Epsilon. =)
