since he was her age. Sarah’s Grandfather believes she is the one that
the Magic Rock is to be passed on to.
So begins an amazing adventure with her Grandfather, that takes Sarah
back to the year 1948, where she meets eleven year old Toby. Together
they share an exciting and scary experience when Toby finds a small canvas
bag in the hollow of a tree.
Val Incoll sought refuge in drawing and painting from a very early age. Pencil, ink, charcoal and pastels were early escapes into the magical world of creation. Val paints from the heart and has never lost that feeling of excitement every time the brush hits canvas. “For others to ‘feel’ the painting, not just ‘see’ the painting is what’s important.” When all the dust had settled and Val’s children were independent with families of their own, a new urge arose, writing. Although winning a writing scholarship earlier in life the opportunity did not arise to fulfill this ambition until Val's mind was 'free' to concentrate on another creative outlet.
