'The book opened and she settled into her armchair. Within seconds, she was back where she belonged - cresting the mountain above Belthar’s lair. Imagining the possibilities…'

Miss Tycal’s Magical Emporium n. unique, travelling centre of inspiration in writing; purveyor of fantastical ideas; place of discovery and enjoyment; evoker of curiosity; portal to astonishing array of unusual worlds.

Yes we agree; our emporium is rather special. It is a place where young imaginations unfold and start to explore the possibilities; a place where thought-provoking activities engage and lead to better understanding; a place where fantasmagorical wordery is generated and used to create something quite remarkable. A place where the unimaginable become imaginable and you start to believe.

What’s more, our time travelling portal means that our Magical Emporium can come to you, wherever you may be.

So, unfetter your mind and imagine…

About Miss Tycal


Our magical, travelling emporium simply would not function without our very own Miss Tycal. Renowned for her enthusiastic approach to inspiring children to write, before becoming a professional story-teller, Miss Tycal spent nineteen years, working as a children’s purveyor of knowledge and ideas. Other highlights in her illustrious career include dragon taming in the Evergrisio Mountains, stealth training of elven warriors, and receiving the Nobella Prize for her careful cultivation of Murtwystle (the primary ingredient in Draught of Phantasia).

Nowadays, Miss Tycal mainly specialises in creating an ambience which brings stories to life and using drama as a vehicle to self expression and growth in confidence, (although she does still find time to time travel between portals when the need arises. Oh, and, in her spare time, she writes!)
