Here’s the set-up:


“The Healing Shard” is the debut novel from British author Tim Kearsley.
Leo is a 12 year-old schoolboy who loves science and astronomy and hates History, November and Tuesdays. But one frosty, November night his quiet, comfortable life is turned upside-down by a tiny piece of stone that falls from the sky and lands at his feet. The stone fragment draws Leo into another world; a world of magicians, spells and dark, brooding evil. Slowly, as he descends into nightmare, he begins to wonder if he will ever see his own world again….




“”The Healing Shard” was an excellent read with sharp dialogue and wonderful prose. The opening prologue grabs pulls you in filling you with dread and mystery of what is to come. “The healing shard ended up as delightful escapist fun that can truly be enjoyed by all ages!” – Amazon Reviewer, 5 Stars


“I finished reading this book a few nights ago. Normally it takes me several weeks to finish a book this long, but I really, genuinely couldn’t put this down! At first I thought this was going to be another tired “cash in on Harry Potter” type story (the hero is a young boy), but by the fourth chapter I could see this was something unique. There are so many threads to this story and I couldn’t see how it was all going to come together. But it did, and in ways I couldn’t have dreamed of. The climax had me up until 2 in the morning to see what happened and I am waiting so impatiently for the sequel now!” – Amazon Reviewer, 5 Stars


About The Author


My name’s Tim Kearsley and I was born in the county of Northamptonshire, England in February, 1955.

I knew that I had a book in me a long time ago, but, like many I suppose, it took me a long time to finally take the plunge and actually commit fingers to the keyboard. The result, after several years’ planning and a year or so writing, was “The Healing Shard”.

I went down the conventional route to get “The Healing Shard” published, and had interest from several literary agents, which culminated in trekking off to London to meet one of them. But after two years of emails backwards and forwards, and edits and suggestions and changing the book this way and that, I got – to be blunt about it – fed up!

The manuscript languished on my hard drive for a couple of years after that and I contented myself with writing short stories.

Then a friend told me that she had self-published her book. I looked into it and decided I’d give it a shot. And so here it is, on Amazon – “The Healing Shard”!

I hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you do, and even (surely not!) if you don’t!

Apart from writing, I spend time walking, marvelling at the night sky and helping where I can with the conservation of this jewel of a planet we call Earth.

I live in Northamptonshire still, with my partner of 18 years, Jill.
