about the author

Elizabeth Dooley

As a child growing up in the suburbs of Manchester, England, there was nothing more Elizabeth liked to do than curl up with an exciting adventure story. Freedom to roam and play in the fields and woods near her home fuelled her adventurous spirit. Reading continued to feature large as she studied English at Leicester University and then went on to teach in Primary schools. Having married, and with three small children, her taste for adventure was satisfied by living for ten years in Chile, South America, where she wrote a book about the British pioneers of sheep farming in the wilds of Patagonia. Back where she grew up, and now with three grandchildren, she continues to love stories, including those found in the Bible.

In The Vanishing Tom and Ali build a secret tree house in Fern Valley. But when Tom finds an even better hiding place, he has no idea it will soon turn into a near death trap.

In The Vortex Jim seems intent on making Sameer’s life a misery as The Venturers face the challenges of a week at an Activity Camp. Find out if Sameer will become his friend indeed when Jim is swept away towards a watery end.

In The Villa identical twins Jill and Jackie enjoy confusing everybody as The Venturers are involved in an archaeological dig taking place in the village. As well as discovering Roman coins and jewellery they have to track down and catch the thief who steals the finds, and the vandals who threaten to ruin the dig.

In The Verdict Laura is devastated when the cash box she has been entrusted with at the school fair is stolen. It’s Guy Fawkes night and as the bonfire roars and rages out of control and fireworks explode all around them, can The Venturers catch the thief and recover the money?
