I'm a person who loves writing, and this appears to be in my DNA! My grandfather, his sister, uncle and son were all published authors (from the late 19th century to me since 1987).
All my stories have humour throughout, and elements of morals and ethics. They're all safe for both children and adults to read.
Many of them have been reviewed and you can read these in subsequent pages (not all were written by people I know!).
You can also preview them online.
And, of course, all can be purchased as paperback or Kindle editions.
Why should you buy my stories? Here is some feedback from readers of various ages and nationalities...
Ian has distinctly shown his superb literary imagination and style of description as he writes the feelings the main character of the book, Ranga.
To me it is one of the best books I have read that initiates a child into an alien country while at the same time working as a text of study.
I love the type of story full of faith in dreams.
This delightful story comes with a sparkle of freshness and simplicity and the reader will be left wondering how much is fact and how much is the imagination of the author.
The witty anecdotes and vibrant characters ensure a wide appeal.
Many teachers would enjoy reading this yarn aloud for both its humour and its nostalgia.
This is one of the most beautiful stories I can say that I have read in a long time and it brought tears to my eyes.
Hearty congratulations to Author Ian Burns and a special mention to Lauren Eldridge-Murray, whose illustrations are captivating and hilarious.
A fine read for children and grandchildren. And you will enjoy it also. No doubt.
