Rosie Morganabout this book: 'Arthur and the Last Knight', is a fantasy for young teens.
It takes place in Cornwall, U.K.,my beautiful home county.
The story, although set in the present day, pulls in Sir Bedivere, one of King Arthur's knights of the Round table, and a sword which may well be Excalibur - the sword in the stone.
However, the Arthur of the title is Arthur Penhaligon, a skateboarder. His life and those of his friends is about to be changed, forever.
His destiny is unique.
And this is only the beginning.
I have taught in Cornish schools and LOVED it.
The young people, the county, and the Arthurian myths associated with it are the inspiration behind my book.
If you go on to my facebook page you will find photos of some of the places which feature in the story. The moors and the animals that live there, the coast and the historic fishing port. Even the little train that links them together.
I wanted to write the sort of book that I enjoyed reading when I was younger.
That drew me in to another world.
I hope that I've succeeded.
