Author details

AH (Angela) Proctor


I am a business woman, author and mummy to my two wonderful children, Skye and Kyle. These little bookworms love stories, which is how I became involved in writing. I have been telling stories to my children all of their lives and in 2014 decided to turn their stories into books. Since publishing my first book I found I had a passion for writing and storytelling. I have visited over 70 schools across Scotland spreading the word about Thumble Tumble and converting thousands of children into ‘Arranites’ on the way. 

About writer's work

I write fairy tale adventures for children about a little witch from the magical Isle of Arran called Thumble Tumble. The eight-book series follows Thumble Tumble's adventures as she battles against an evil Night Witch called Mogdred to restore the balance of good and evil.


Thumble Tumble and the Ollpehist, the first book in the series, was published in August 2015. Thumble Tumble and the Cauldron of Undry, the second instalment of the series, was published on 31 October 2016, with Thumble Tumble and the Eagalach Cup due for release Autumn 2017!

Current events and projects

I am available to host readings and workshops in schools and libraries where I’ll lead the children on one of my magical ‘Imagination Challenges' to conjure their own Spells or Potions! I like nothing better than watching the children become excited with their creative thinking which is where the ‘Imagination Challenge’ really inspires young minds.

The audience I like to work with are children aged 8 – 11 or primary’s 4 - 7. Group sizes can range from 50 to 250 with around 150 being the optimum size for the Imagination Challenges.

The children love the interaction and I have received fantastic feedback from dozens of the schools visited.
