About Gabrielle

Gabrielle is from the North East of England. Her first job was in the video-games industry where she worked on games for PC, Playstation and XBox. She currently teaches computer games development at Teesside University where she runs the Animex festival of Animation and Computer Games and gets to meet all of her favourite game and animation creators.

She has always loved exploring castles and when she visited Castle Coch in Wales and saw a carving of The Fates over one of the fireplaces, an idea for a book crept into her head. When she got home she started typing the story of Alfie Bloom, the boy who inherited a castle. She has now written three books in the series.

  1. Dear M’s. Kent,
    I would like to thank you for an incredible journey through The Secrets of Hexbridge Castle. The story was magical, with fantastic highs and lows. I felt I was on a roller coaster ride that I didn’t want to end. Sadly it did! I finished the book inside of 2-1/2 days. It is now 7 hours after finishing the book and I want to read more about Alfie, the twins and all the magical adventures they encounter.
    I have already referred your book to one of the kids I watch. I can hardly wait to share it with the other 3 families so their kids can experience the spine tingling adventure.
    Thank you again.
    Jacki a.k.a. Auntie to all the kids I watch

    PS: I might just be your oldest fan at 65 yrs and counting! ?
    I hope to read more from your mighty pen…

  2. Oh please, please keep writing Alfie’s story. My 9 yr old son and I are on the third book and are riveted. Thank you for bringing the passion of reading to my somewhat reluctant son. We are dying for more!! Thank you! Melanie and Will

    1. Hi Melanie. Thank you for your lovely comment! I’m on maternity leave at the moment so only just checking in to my site and was delighted to read that you and your son are enjoying the series! I do have more in mind, but have been asked to work on a couple of other books right now. But Alfie and friends WILL return… as may some other characters 😉
