Welcome to the Walking With Witches website. You've come to the right place to find out more about an exciting story based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Read about the writing and illustrating processes that lead to the birth of a book - from the first seeds of an idea to the printed copy. Find out how research is carried out and how characters are born...and sometimes take over!
Eleanor and her friends are on a trip to Newcastle, visiting the Literary and Philosophical Society. They see odd shadows and hear ghostly whispering voices – and an ancient book in a glass display case leafs open as they watch. Pages stop fluttering and the girls enter the world of a witch hanged on the town moor in 1650.
After finding a witch's treasure, the girls find themselves pulled into a dangerous adventure, threatened by a dark and timeless evil. They follow the trail that the accused witches took around Newcastle, following clues and unravelling an ancient mystery.
