Author Damian Harvey

Mystery and Thriller

cooperation, ingenuity, patience, respect for animals

When new neighbours move into the house next door, twins Jazz and Mortimer can’t help being excited. The house has been empty for ages and they have been hoping to have neighbours with children their own age. But Jazz and Mortimer are disappointed to learn there are no children – just a man who goes by the name of Dr Salamander and his elderly housekeeper, Mrs Heckle. They are an odd couple and the children long to find out more about them. But the twins have another mystery to solve – why are the neighbourhood pets disappearing?

Thank you Laila, 

I am really happy that you liked it  - especially that part of the story. That little bit was tricky to write as I didn't want it to sound too complicated. Sometimes when you write a story, you have everything in your head but ot's not always easy getting it right when you write it...

Have fun reading

Hello Everyone...

It has been fantastic reading all of your comments. I had a lot of fun writing about Dr Salamander and the twins, Jazz and Mortimer and feel as though we have all been on an exciting journey together.

Now that you have read the whole book you know that Dr Salamander is invisible so you can finally see him without his wig and sunglasses... and now I can ask you something without spoiling it.

What would YOU do if you were INVISIBLE???
