OUT NOW - 'MARROW' written by Theo L Gardener - illustrated by Mary Deaville!

What we have all been waiting for, .... (especially me!), is available now as an eBook and you can also pre-order a paperback. - Available from The Endless Bookcase and Amazon.

Or, if you prefer to have a signed copy by both Author and Illustrator, you can click on my website SHOP and pre-order a paperback from me.

I must give a massive THANK YOU to

Theo L Gardener for discovering my original artwork cards which led to many enjoyable chats, discussions and visits to the publisher, The Endless Bookcase in

St. Albans.

I have had a thoroughly enjoyable experience drawing fantastic creatures and scenes and have now completed an item on my bucket list to be a

Children's Book Illustrator.

The first of many, as I am already working on illustrations for another couple of books!

If you're reading this blog, and you have a story you would like to publish as a book,

I highly recommend:

Carl French


Morgana Evans


The Endless Bookcase.

They are friendly, encouraging and highly skilled in everything you need to know about book publishing, (and a lot of other things too.) They will help you step-by-step to turn your wonderful story into a book. I cannot praise them enough for their support, advise and effort that they put in to publish 'Marrow'. They are incredible!

If you are looking for someone to illustrate a story for you, then look no further...


I am an illustrator with a quirky and quality style; I would be happy to have a chat with you about your story and we can discover ideas you may like me to draw for you. Adding illustrations to your words can not only enhance your story but, as illustrations are a universal language, they make it multilingual too. The images I draw have an added fun value to the reader, with little things hidden for the children to find. I paint using CMYK which makes really vivid colours, unless of course you choose black & white. You decide whether you would like the occasional illustration, a coloured image or full colour pages of wonder and detail. Front and back cover artwork is available too, on it's own, or in a package with other illustrations.

Lets help spark the next generations imagination together!

Send me a message via Contact Me on my website and lets have some fun creating literary magic.
