Sam Wilding is fast becoming an established children’s author. Best known for his fantasy epic, 'The Denthan Series', his most recent children's novel, 'Windscape', is an adventure story that tackles the Wind Farm Debate. 'Opinions about on-shore wind farms are deeply divided but, in this delightful eco-thriller, Sam succeeds in presenting both sides of the argument, skillfully avoiding coming down on one side or the other.' Sam also writes under his own name - PAUL MURDOCH, and has a new fantasy series - THE PECK CHRONICLES due for release by STRIDENT PUBLISHING. The first book in this newly adapted, exciting, 7 book series for children and young adults is called TALISMAN. You can pre-order in the BOOKs tab. Fing out more at
