Book Description

Treespeaker by Katie W Stewart

A Treespeaker is one with his forest, moving with its spirit, inseparably bound to it.

Terrifying visions warn Jakan that a visitor to his tribe is not who he claims to be. As the villagers fall under the spell of the stranger’s mind-bending sorcery, Jakan grows desperate to be rid of him. Events take a sinister turn when he accuses the stranger of sacrilege — and it is Jakan, not the outsider, who is expelled from the forest.

Join Jakan on his perilous journey across a blighted land as he searches for the secret that will save his people — and himself.

“Treespeaker is an intricately woven book that reads like an old oral history. It flows beautifully; with the story so deeply rooted in nature, the writing seemed to take on a life of its own and bloom in its own right.” Sift Book Reviews

In the author's own words

Who am I? That depends on what you want to know. As you’re reading this, you already know that I’m a writer. I’m also an artist, mother of three lovely children, farmer’s wife, school library officer, IT curriculum support person and lover of anything Celtic, especially the Celtic harp. I could list a thousand other things I am, if I thought about it hard enough, but I see your eyes already glazing over, so I’ll spare you.

My writing: I’ve been writing ever since I can remember. I started school in a small village school in England and writing long stories was greatly encouraged (not necessarily good long stories, but long all the same). Reading was a big thing too, at home and at school. We always had a house full of books. I loved to disappear into magical places, go on exciting adventures or be terrified by the scary pictures.

Despite my love of books and writing, though, I didn’t seriously start to write until 12 years ago. Up until then I’d been sidetracked by my other love – art. I have a need to create and it was so easy in those days to just pick up a pen and draw. Art was the one thing that had set me apart from my siblings when I was younger (they were good at it too, but not so interested), so it was also a bit of a security blanket. Then, after the adoption of our second son, I found myself in a strange place. After three years of jumping though hoops and walking tightropes to get to the point of adoption, I now had no pressure on me to do anything. I had two beautiful boys, but no one telling me I had to finish something by a certain date. I missed the angst! So I enrolled in a writing course and that’s how it all began.

Since then I’ve finished three novels, started two sequels and have at least five more stories quietly bubbling on the back burner of my brain. If wishes were fishes, I’d earn a living at writing and illustrating, but that might be a lonely life and I love the job I have, so I’m happy where I am.
