Join author, chef, music & pop culture journalist, traveller, vinyl collector and rock n’ roll obsessive Shane Pinnegar’s journey as he writes and publishes novels, reviews movies, books and music, and muses on a life spent in hot & sweaty kitchens and smokey & sticky bars, travelling exotic destinations in planes, trains, automobiles, boats and more, climbing snowy mountains and drinking cheap wine and fancy cocktails on sunny beaches, and whatever else he can think of. All the while he’s been searching for purpose and fun in equal measure, more or less (sometimes more of one, sometimes less of the other), and which one you’ll get on any given day is a lucky dip.






When Jada and clan are attacked by harpies atop the mountain where they live, she must learn great courage to protect their unicorn herd and her family.

The tweenage warrior-in-training will need to draw on her father’s wisdom and leadership and new-found magical powers she doesn’t yet understand if she is to defeat their attackers.

She is given strength in this adventure by the return of her ‘imaginary’ childhood friend Bando, and the special bond she shares with a unique unicorn named Baby.

As Jada goes into battle she discovers that in sacrifice and selflessness there can be found great power.

Jada: Mountain Warrior is a positive and uplifting fantasy novel for teens, young adults & beyond, full of action and adventure and some special messages about finding oneself and finding courage, with a little help from those we care about.
