Hello! I'm Tamsin Mori, author of The Weather Weaver. Thanks for popping by!

Are you a day-dreamer, a sky-gazer, a wild-world adventurer?

Do you have your head in the clouds?

Then you're in the right place.

Let me take you on magical adventures around Shetland and beyond - we'll spot puffins, sing to selkies, and track down myths and legends. Perhaps we'll even conjure some weather together. Keep your eyes on the sky!

The second book in the Weather Weaver series, A GATHERING STORM, is OUT NOW!

The Weather Weaver

What if you could befriend a cloud?
What weather would you choose?
What if the weather matched itself to your mood, whether you wanted it to, or not?

Stella has exciting plans for the summer - she'll be spending the holiday in Shetland with her Grandpa, while her parents are away working. But without Gran, Shetland isn't the same as she remembers - Grandpa is gruff and grumpy and the island feels bleak and lonely. The summer holidays look set to be the worst ever, until Stella encounters a strange old woman, who asks her to catch a cloud...
