I currently have three novels available to buy in paperback, kindle, and free to read on kindle unlimited. They’re all set in the Siren Stories universe of magic, danger and adventure.

Lilly Prospero And The Magic Rabbit

The first book in the Lilly Prospero series introduces you to fifteen year old Lilly, a shy young girl with an extraordinary hidden power.

After she meets talking rabbit Jeffrey, she discovers her paintings and drawings start coming to life.

As people around her start noticing her gift, she becomes the centre of attention like she always dreamed of being, but it’s harder to cope with than she expected. Soon she must work out who her real friends are, and how to control the ever growing magic inside her, before it’s too late.


Lilly Prospero And The Mermaid’s Curse

In the second book in The Lilly Prospero Series, Lilly and her best friend Saffron travel to the holiday town of Whitstable where they meet a trio of mermaids who need their help.

A Harvester has been pulling mermaids from the sea and harvesting them for body parts to trade on the magical black market. Lilly and Saffron team up with a mysterious coven of elderly witches, also determined to stop the Harvester, but find the situation is far more complex and far more dangerous than they initially thought.

Soon they’re fighting not just or the mermaid’s lives, but for their own lives as well.


Emerald Wren And The Coven Of Seven

As a child, Emerald is given a magic lamp and a promise she will change the world. As an adult, she is working as a waitress by day and leading a crime fighting coven of witches by night when the time comes to live up to that promise.

A murderous man on a mission is making his way across the country, hunting for a mysterious prophecy girl, and leaving the bodies of burned women in his wake. 

Emerald must work out what, and who, she is willing to risk in order to save the girl, and the world. But when your best friend is a genie, that question is even harder to answer.


Nature-Girl Vs Worst Nightmare

Nature-Girl vs Worst Nightmare is the debut novel from six year old Rose McKinney, with just a smidge of help from her mother, author J.J. Barnes.

Deep in the Sparkling Forest, Nature-Girl and her friends are training to be super heroes at Miss Sparkle’s Academy for Magical Children. 

When old enemy Worst Nightmare sends an army of Bad Dreams to attack the school, Nature-Girl must use everything she’s learned, and face her biggest fears, if she’s going to stop him.


How To Write A Story

If you’re a passionate writer with a love of stories, but need a few hints, tips and tricks, then this is the book for you.

Each section is dedicated to story craft, a writing technique, or an element of characterisation, using references from popular fiction and film.

JJ wants to help you become a better and more confident writer, on your journey to becoming published.
