Taya Bayliss Mysteries

My stories are about real kids who have problems to solve. They have no magic powers. Their own quick wits and observation skills are their weapons.’   E. J. Gore
The Taya Bayliss collection of mysteries for young readers follows in the grand tradition of Enid Blyton’s ‘Famous Five’ adventures.  
Themes of friendship, loyalty and independence underpin the stories. Taya and her best friend, Chris, are ordinary kids with no magic powers or special abilities. They have only their quick wits to help them as they confront some scary, challenging and downright dangerous situations.
Taya is an inquisitive eleven year-old with a keen eye for detail and a desire for her surroundings to be orderly. When things are not what she considers to be ‘normal’. Her interest is heightened and she strives to re-settle her world.
