Each book tells the story of a different child.  Maria, Ruth, Crispin, Jack and Callum have all completed their challenges.

Everything now depends on Louise. But when we join her at the beginning of book 6, she has a problem.  She is already dead! Can Louise find a way to overcome this ‘setback’ and complete her tasks?

“I have delivered book readings and creative writing workshops in over 50 primary schools in Ireland and the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive,” Garvey said. “My aim is to get a deal for an animated movie or TV show for the Gravespeakers’ series and I will begin work shortly on my new book series.”

Garvey’s books are available on Amazon, on Kindle and on Audible as audio books. Signed copies of the book will be available at Listowel Writers’ Week for €10 on the day or by contacting Anthony on 087 79 79 2 79
