Book Tour: THE TEMPLE OF THE CRYSTAL TIMEKEEPER, The Chronicles of The Stone Book Three By FIONA INGRAM

Continuing the adventure that ended in Britain just a
short while ago, cousins Adam and Justin Sinclair, with their friend Kim
Maleka, are now hunting for the third Stone of Power, one of seven mysterious
stones lost centuries ago. The third stone might be located in an ancient city,
hidden in the depths of the Mexican jungle. When their small plane crashes in
the jungle, Adam, Justin, Kim, and James are rescued by an uncontacted tribe.
James, who is wounded, must stay behind as the kids, with only a young boy,
Tukum, as their guide, make their way through the dense and dangerous jungle to
find the city. River rafting on a crocodile-infested river and evading
predators are just part of this hazardous task.


Of course, their old adversary Dr. Khalid is close
behind as the kids press on in search of the lost city of stone gods. But he is
not the worst of their problems. This time Adam will clash with a terrible
enemy who adopts the persona of an evil Aztec god, Tezcatlipoca, and is keen to
revive the ancient tradition of human sacrifice. Adam, Justin, and Tukum must
play a dreadful ball game of life and death and maybe survive. Will they emerge
alive from the jungle? Will Dr. Khalid find the third Stone of Power before
they do?

 

 

 

I am a children’s author,
but up until a few years ago, I was a journalist and editor. Something rather
unexpected sparked my new career as an author—a family trip to Egypt with my
mother and two young nephews. We had a great time and I thought I’d write them
a short story as a different kind of souvenir…. Well, one book and a planned
book series later, I had changed careers. I have now published Book 3 (The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper) in
my MG adventure series Chronicles of the
Stone
, with many awards for the first book, The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, and a few for Book 2, The Search for the Stone of Excalibur,

and one already for Book 3! I also teach online novel writing for aspiring
authors and I find that very satisfying. Relaxation time finds me enjoying
something creative or artistic, music, books, theatre or ballet. I love doing
research for my book series. I love animals and have written two animal rescue
stories. I have two adorable (naughty) little dogs called Chloe and Pumpkin,
and a beautiful black cat called Bertie.

Top Ten List
My Top Ten (in no particular order):
1. Travel – I have been fortunate enough to visit many countries but there are still more on my list.
2. Animals – I love animals and wish I had tons of money to donate to many of the causes I read about. One day, I will!
3. Movies – I LOVE movies. Detective, thrillers, animal feel goods, historical series, adventure, action, marvel character movies, I love it!
4. Books – I LOVE books, of course, and still have many of my old childhood favourites inherited from my parents and grandparents.
5. Music – listening to music, mainly classical and movie themes, is very relaxing.
6. Theatre and ballet – would you believe it I started out studying drama at university, went to drama school in London and mime school in Paris, came back home and ended up in writing and publishing.
7. Writing – not just writing middle grade adventures though. I have an alter ego named Arabella Sheraton who writes Regency romances and has actually written more books than I have. Arabella is the proud author of eight books so far. Do I have a problem wearing two hats? Not at all. I love jumping into a historical fiction romance and having fun.
8. Antiques and collectibles – I have inherited so many beautiful antiques (furniture and collectibles) but that hasn’t stopped me browsing flea markets and antique shops to enjoy the beautiful items of yesteryear and sometimes buy.
9. Friends/family – getting together with good friends is something that can’t be beaten. I love having friends/family over and making a great dinner for us to enjoy.
10. Giving talks on child literacy – I didn’t start off as an expert on child literacy, but after I fostered and later adopted my daughter Mabel (a disadvantaged young African girl) I had to learn pretty quickly because she came to me just about illiterate at age eleven. From my experiences in teaching Mabel to read, I then was asked to address many institutions and groups on the topic. I enjoy helping parents and teachers to get kids to love reading.
