Spell Sisters Books

At last, some new work to post on my neglected blog!
I've been working on the covers and b&w illustrations for the first four books in the Spell Sisters series for Simon & Schuster, written by Amber Castle.
They're due to be published on 1st March 2012.
(They can be found on Amazon here)
The stories are set in and around the magical world of Avalon - 
so lots of lovely images to illustrate!
I'll post more artwork after they've been published, but in the meantime I'm working on the illustrations for the next four books!


  1. Mary! Welcome back to the outside world!
    We have missed you while you were locked away in your studio illustrating these books... but what a lot of lovely work you have created :o)

    I look forward to seeing some of the inside illustrations when you are able to share.
    Now... you deserve a day off, and a nice cup of tea with cake.

  2. Mary, these are absolutely gorgeous!

  3. Well done, Mary. Following on from what June said, and will we see YOU again soon?

  4. Oh they look FAB Mary! Soon my two possums will be old enough to read these. What a treat, they adore anything magical. : ) x Alisa

  5. Thanks for kind comments! I will post some more illustrations from the books soon...
    Frances - sorry, sorry, I haven't arranged to meet up - will try to fix this soon, honest!
    Alisa - aw, to calling your little ones possums!!! Actually, even if they're not old enough to read the stories just yet, the publishers have created a spell sisters website where you can download pictures to colour/activity sheets etc. Here!

  6. Very nice, rich illustrations Mary
