The Long Staff, by Clare Wilson, is the first book in the Staff Wielder Series. It follows the adventures of a young Tom MacKay, in the wrong place at the wrong time, as he finds himself dragged back in time to fight great evil using a magical staff he knows little about. Forced to learn the lore which is his heritage in a matter of weeks, he struggles against dark forces to help keep himself and his family alive. A baptism of fire, the little boy who is obsessed with magical adventures finds himself in the middle of a story he can't put down.
From Hamilton in Lanarkshire, Clare has a History degree from Strathclyde University and now lives in London with her husband. Having spent some time trying to find some magic in various fields, she is now concentrating on her career as a writer.
