Gabrielle is from the North East of England. She grew up in the 1980’s riding her bike into trouble, drawing monsters, reading comics, playing video games, and hanging out at the arcades in Seaton Carew. Her first job was in video-games working on games for PC, Playstation and XBox. She ran a games and animation festival and taught game design to university students for sixteen years and is now a full time writer. She is the author of the Alfie Bloom series and is excited to be writing books about Nessa and Demelza, stars of the super cool video game, Knights and Bikes.
Welcome to the sleepy island of Penfurzy, where nothing exciting ever really happens. OR DOES IT? Adventure awaits Demelza and her new best friend in the whole world, Nessa, as they explore the island and uncover the mysteries of the Penfurzy Knights. With a honking pet goose sidekick, quirky islanders and a legendary treasure to find, it’s up to Nessa and Demelza to ride their bikes, solve the puzzles before them, and face down danger with frisbees, water-balloons, feathers …. and a toilet plunger. THEIR FRIENDSHIP WILL WARM YOUR HEART. THEIR BRAVERY WILL MAKE THEM LEGENDS.
