R.J. Barnes

R. J. Barnes has never thought of being an author. Not being a great book reader, the idea of writing a book had never been dreamt of.

The inspiration to write this book came on a trip to Krakow (Poland) in February 2016. Reading about the Wawel dragon conjures up magical and mystical stories. In the market place, there were many stalls and that's where the cheeky face of Arrek was discovered. Thoughts of this character and the fun he could have continued to play on the author's mind, until pen met paper and a book was written.


  • Arrek and the Zolganans


    This is the second book in the series about a little dragon called Arrek who lives with the Rodley family. We meet him in a poor state after he's been inside the washing machine.

  • The Adventures of Arrek the Dragon


    Alex is one day given a magical lamp by her father. Unbeknown to Alex and her parents, the beautiful marbled lamp is really an egg, and one day it hatches and reveals a baby dragon called Arrek.
