Janis Mackay


We watched Janis Mackay authors meet. She spoke to us about her inspiration for the Magnus Finn books. She lived in a cottage near a beach in John O’Groats in Scotland there was something in the sea that looked like a hand it disappeared at the different tides. So one day she asked somebody what it was and it was a mast of a sunken ship from the war. Then Janis wrote Magnus Finn a boy who could breath on land and under the sea and ended up writing three books. Janis Mackay also read from her books The Accidental Time Traveler. We had to think what we thought could happen next if a stranger grabbed your ankles. I would like to read some of her books especially Magnus Finn.
