About the Author

Julie Carpenter is a journalist, writer and editor of over 20 years experience. After gaining a masters degree from Oxford University, she started out as a gossip columnist on The Daily Express. She then became a feature writer and theatre critic there for many years. She has also written news, comment, travel, magazine and lifestyle articles and contributed a regular Sunday Express column. Since having her own children, she found herself re-immersed in the wonderful world of children's literature and began editing for Green Bean Books. Harry and the High-Wire is her first children's story.


Julie Carpenter just might be a witch herself. She certainly casts a spell with these wonderful, odd, thoroughly enchanting stories of small town folks touched by magic, some of it luminous, some dark. The people you'll meet in Whistlestop are fully as flesh and blood as your strangest neighbor, and a hundred times more interesting. Step inside and visit for a while, but beware the fairies and giraffes. Definitely do not trust the snakes, and take shelter where you find it. It's like the man says, "There's always a storm coming in Whistlestop."

- Jeff Weddle, author of Dead Man's Hand

"Tales of the Unexpected" meets "The Twilight Zone" in this wonderful collection of interlocking stories. From deceptively simple ghost stories to complex allegories of xenophobia and mob mentality, Whistlestop is a town that holds up a deeply discomforting mirror to modern American society. Highly recommended.

- Orla McAlinden, author of The Accidental Wife
