Meet the Author


Robin Chambers

In the 1970s I wrote my first fantasy and magic stories - "The Ice Warrior and Other Stories" - which were published by Penguin.  This book of short stories was followed by two other books in the same genre, published by Granada (my Penguin editor at the time had moved to Granada Publishing).
    After a professional lifetime in education, I am now writing a very long magical fantasy story "for bright children between the ages of 10 and 110" with the over-arching title "Myrddin's Heir".  The first five books - Book 1: "A Wizard of Dreams, Book 2: "Amazing Grace", Book 3 "The Quality of Mercy", Book 4: "Gifts from the Gods" and Book 5: "When the Cat's Away..." - are now in the Amazon Kindle Store at 99p per copy.
    Clearly this is one of the best bargains currently to be had in the literary universe.


Books by Robin Chambers

A Wizard of Dreams (Myrddin's Heir, vol. 1)

Gordon Bennett was born on 7th August 1999 with extraordinary powers.  Where have those powers come from?  Who – or what - is “Zack”...?  His mother begins to notice when he is 5 months old.  Key events indicate his powers are getting stronger...
    How does he deal with bullies?  How about ghosts, fairies and wizards...?  How seriously weird do things get around his eleventh birthday?  And what has his sixteen greats grandmother to do with it...?
    Very few children get to go where he gets to go...
At the end of Book 1 he finds out for certain that he’s not the only one.  There’s a girl in the frame...
This story will make you laugh quite a lot, but I warn you that in places it makes me cry.

Amazing Grace (Myrddin's Heir, vol. 2)

A girl born on 25th December 1998 plays an increasingly important part in Gordon’s life (and he in hers).  Grace can read minds, and she has healing hands...
    Could her father really have been a God?  And what has the most powerful wizard our world has ever known to do with all this?  The answer lies in the Land of the Forever Young (and of the Dead); but Gordon and Grace can only get there by leaving their bodies behind...  
    Gordon’s parents discover the whole truth, and Gordon's and Grace's best friends Nick and Miranda play an increasingly important part in events.  The four children work on something that could help YOU to write really good stories...
    Can the clock be turned both backwards and forwards?  And can their guardian angels help Gordon’s dad catch a serial killer...?

The Quality of Mercy (Myrddin's Heir, vol. 3)

Where were Gordon and Grace, while their bodies were in that dell in Wales...?
    How do fairies cope with growing old...?  And what has that to do with the wedding of William Wales and Catherine Myddleton...?
    Can Gordon and Grace take on the combined might of wicked wizardry and witchcraft in Chester?  And what very interesting discovery about Miranda and Nick does Gordon make along the way...?
    Why is someone trying to kill them all?  And what do Nick’s father and Miranda’s mother have in common...?  
How do The Fantastic Four sidestep The Famous Five to become The Super Six?  And who do Gordon and Grace find themselves rescuing...?
    So much happens in Book 3 that it has taken 13,000 more words than Book 1 and 4,000 words more than Book 2 to tell you about.

Gifts from the Gods (Myrddin's Heir, vol. 4)

Certain “gods” decide to show themselves, after Gordon helps hominids on a planet many light years away...
    When is a pony not a pony?  And what is Groc the Knocker up to now...?
    How can the children work together when the girls are in the grounds of a haunted stately home in Scotland and the boys are in a medieval castle in Ireland?  The answer has a lot to do with Lucifer’s rod...
    What has an evil Goddess kept screaming for centuries at the top of a tall tower, where the walls ooze oil and look eerily like skin?  And why does the God of the Sea feel the need to get involved?
    And if that wasn’t enough, this is the part of the story where The Super Six become The Eight Team: when Nick and Miranda acquire their very own guardian angels...

    What plans does Adolfo Aragon have to inherit Mortlake’s crown? And how much help might he get from the Capo dei Capi in London – the infamous Enzo Potenza? Just how evil ARE some of the other members of the ruling clique?
    Carman, the Goddess of the Damned, does not take the death of her daughter The Morrigan lying down. To which of her sons does she assign the task of destroying Myrddin’s Heir and his three loyal friends?
    Gordon and Grace return from holiday and find out their houses have been bugged while they were away. Soon after that they find out what happens when you don’t fight back.
    They are left with no choice. They have to go to war…
