Sally Christie - Author

About the Author

Sally Christie's first job, nearly thirty years ago, was with a publisher of children's books. While she was there, she had a go at writing herself and (cunningly calling herself Syd Carter) sent the story to an editor in her own office. It was accepted. She has grown up a lot since then, with two notable results: The Icarus Show is a much better story than Syd's was; and she felt able to submit it to David Fickling Books under her own name.

Matt is new, quiet and shy. Jazzy is outspoken, popular, confident. They'd never normally be friends. But things in the village of Burnham Stone aren't normal: Matt has seen something extraordinary up in Burnham Wood. And Jazzy is the only one who believes him. With the help of Matt's little dog and Jazzy's little sister, the two make surprising discoveries - and unleash such a powerful force that nothing can ever be the same again. A wonderful story about friends, growing up, and the very real magic in the world around us.

The Sisters of Versailles A Novel

Author: Sally Christie Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/06/2016

Goodness, but sisters are a thing to fear. Court intriguers are beginning to sense that young King Louis XV, after seven years of marriage, is tiring of his Polish wife. The race is on to find a mistress for the royal bed as various factions put their best feet, and women, forward. The King's scheming ministers push sweet, naive Louise, the eldest of the aristocratic Nesle sisters, into the arms of the King. Over the following decade, she and three of her younger sisters, ambitious Pauline; complacent Diane, and cunning Marie Anne, will conspire, betray, suffer, and triumph in a desperate fight for both love and power as each becomes the king's favourite for a time. In the tradition of The Other Boleyn Girl, The Sisters of Versailles is a clever, intelligent, and absorbing novel that historical fiction fans will devour. Based on meticulous research on a group of women never before written about in English, Sally Christie's stunning debut is a complex exploration of power and sisterhood-of the admiration, competition, and even hatred that can coexist within a family when the stakes are high enough.
