Dancing with Trees
Eco-tales of the British Isles
by Allison Galbraith and Alette J Willis
A collection of retold folk tales from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales that invite you to reconnect to the natural world around you. This collection builds on centuries of wisdom from ancient Celtic myths to twentieth century Scottish Traveller tales, all of which call on us today to live in harmony with the world around us.
Our world is in desperate need of stories that reconnect us to each other and to the plant, animal and mineral others we dwell alongside. My passion is for bringing the stories of science together with the stories of imagination in service to a better, more livable world for us all.

How to Make a Golem and Terrify People
by Alette J Willis
My first novel for children, How to Make a Golem (and Terrify People), won the Floris prize for childrens fiction (8-11 year olds). It is set in Edinburgh and explores the theme of how fear holds us back from sharing our gifts with the World.
How to Make a Golem builds on my academic research, which explores how the stories each of us tells about ourselves and that others tell about us both limit our possibilities for living and being and have the potential to change our lives and the lives of those we share this world with.
