The Sienna Series

The Sienna Series is about a funny and headstrong girl with a sense of adventure. She loves solving mysteries and has an instinct for detective investigations.  

Adopted by the Taylor family, the series also touches on the loss of her parents and her trying to fit into a new family alongside her compelling obsession with solving mysteries.  

It will take you on a magical journey of laughter, tears, and heart-warming family fun.   The series is based around Richmond, North Yorkshire, UK, not too far from some of the authors extended family.

Book 1 – The Doll’s House

(Just click above)

An adventurous 8-year-old girl uncovers a dark mystery in her new adoptive home. Unable to ignore the spooky events that follow she takes on the investigation.

The Doll’s House is for children primarily aged between 6-11 years but easily has a window of one year below and above this age range. Interestingly, since being published, the book has attracted even a larger age range – including adults!

The Doll’s House is available to purchase via Amazon, Waterstones & all independent bookshops (although they might have to order copies in). 
For signed copies, please purchase the book before contacting the author for her to sign. She will advise how you can get your copies signed.

I hope you enjoy and do please leave a review on Amazon after you have read this. It will help tremendously.

Thank you.

A little bit more about the book.

When Sienna is adopted by Inga and Matt Taylor, she is intrigued by the story of their daughter, Anika, who went missing a few years back. But who could have taken her? 

Or did Anika run away? Will the same happen to her?

Discovering Anika’s doll’s house in a locked cupboard is the beginning of a mystery that Sienna feels compelled to solve.  

The wonderful front cover of the book was created by Steve Ince (previous edition cover by Michael James Cain).

This is the dolls house that my auntie Joyce left me after she died which inspired the book. The story is set in Richmond, Yorkshire, a wonderful little town which plenty of scope for mysteries and adventures. As my aunt lived in Doncaster, Yorkshire and as I have many family still living there, it was important to me to still hold that connection. THE DOLL’S HOUSE book is dedicated to my aunt.
