Gillian Duce

Gillian Duce was born in Taree, New South Wales, Australia to newspaper owners Mr David Thomas Mills Madell and Jeanette MacDonald on the 27th of November 1973. She grew up in the town of Mareeba, Queensland; a rural area of the north.

As the third child of seven, she learnt to amuse with words from a very young age. Raised with the newspaper industry around her, she found herself drawn to the word. She ran a successful business with her husband, Barry Johns, for several years, but with the gradual loss of eyesight she decided to go back to her true passion of writing. She has had several articles published and her first book, “Magic and Mayhem: Tree of Knowledge” was published by Saga Books in 2006.

Having contained the great threat of the wraith-maker to an area in the Grillion forest, Boh and his friends learn of a way that it would be possible for Dane to form an unstoppable force. As the borderline is pressed, Boh’s psychic reading increases. Who is the vision that Boh keeps seeing of the young man with the slanted eyes, small mouth and flatter facial features? Is he wanting to help, hinder or to be saved? With the quarantined area already being pushed back and widening, they have no choice. They must destroy at least one of the scrolls that are being sought by taking them from the possession of mad man. It is against the vampire clan in the Scarlet Mountains that they go to war.
Boh Pierce is like any other fifteen year old at the beginning of last century. He and his close friends believe that vampires and werewolves are not only real but also evil. It is a challenge, then, to his way of thinking to find out that there is more to the hidden world then spoken of in ‘human’ stories. He is not only a witch, but his uncle a werewolf. This is the story of Boh as he stumbles with six other young apprentice witches to find their way in the hidden world of the other races that inhabit the earth. The truth of witches being the protectors of all races, clans and beings. The underworld which humanity is kept naïve of; with exception of a few.

Boh’s class is sent on their first mission to protect the migration of the low-land elves as they make their way to their summer lodgings in the east. They are made aware of Boron, son of the dwarf monarchy, King Nevin, and his pursuit of the throne of the low-land dwarves. Boh and his class are caught up in the battle which leads to the end of a two hundred year old war.
Boh and his group of mixed, hidden world beings, try to gather their senses after the kidnapping of Frieda, the great vampire witch. They seek to find the elements that wish to control her and stumble into a secondary problem of salvaging an Atlantean flying craft. Elves, witches, werewolves, vampires, dark witches and wraith-makers clash at the fortress of the fauns where they battle for the very freedom of the world.
Boh Pierce, a teen witch, is sent on a journey with his class of six and collection of warriors led by his half werewolf uncle and a dwarf prince. They are sent to find the castle of the unnamed knight to return a sacred item to its truthful owner. On their path they encounter the Lepreharns (disowned Leprechauns) and find themselves caught in a royal disagreement which could cost them their lives.
