~~~ THE GINORMOUS SERIES ~~~
(3-12 yrs) Children's Picture Books

Ginormous Jo and her cute pet family entertain children with their fun-loving antics and meaningful life lessons. Lessons that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

Each beautifully illustrated book is a valuable teaching tool constructed to speak to children between the ages of 3-12 yrs, at their level. Each adventure specifically addresses real-world issues like what to do if you're lost, how to help a grieving friend, how important it is to speak less and listen more, how to change the world with one small act of kindness a day, accepting a new member of the family or classroom, friendship, bullying and how to tackle anxiety.

These collectables will warm young hearts, open their eyes to new ideas, help them understand they're not alone, and enable parents to open a dialogue about some of life's toughest issues in an age appropriate way with ease. A wonderful addition to any child's home or teacher's read-aloud library.

~~~ REVIEWS ~~~

"A way for parents to educate their children on important topics in a way that children will listen."

"These books should be available in every home and school to come back to again and again."

"WOW! I absolutely loved these books! Each story has something to teach, a lesson to learn. What a great teaching tool. The pictures are gorgeous! A fantastic series!"

~~~ THE FALLEN ANGEL SERIES ~~~
Paranormal Suspense

Do you believe in Angels? Then buckle up...

At the age of four, Amy was taken... She survived..
A week later, another little girl was taken... She didn't.

Angry that a bad man has gotten away with murder, feisty young Amy Fox makes a deal with God. When she dies, if she's been a good girl, would God let her sit on a cloud for a while, invisible, to get bad people who slip through his fingers?

Her deal and God long forgotten, career girl Amy mysteriously dies. Her lifeless body is found beneath a London underground commuter train.

She awakens in the afterlife to discover an international network of like-minded souls who've all made the same deal. A sophisticated MI5-esque justice machine sits in the skies, protecting, righting wrongs, tracking criminals, and working within strict rules of play...all against time.

Each country's Unit shares intelligence, surveillance, and resources to deactivate dangerous situations. The only evidence they leave behind during their earthly visits is a small white feather sashaying to the ground.

In a chaotic world, powerful adversaries try to close her Unit down. A complex SAS vigilante has been assigned to work as her partner, but with his jealous violent ex-girlfriend on her heels and with her own vendetta to settle, Amy has never worked so hard in her entire earthly life. She has to wonder if making a deal with God was a mistake.

~~~ REVIEWS ~~~

"The premise itself is wonderful: fallen angels exacting instant karma on unsuspecting criminals - yes please! Sign me up for this deal, right now!"

"The writing is excellent, some graphic scenes, amazing characters and the story is brilliant. Leads nicely on to a sequel."

"Avenging angels aren't a new story, but SC Cunningham's The Deal delivers a fresh spin with a grittier, edgy feel."

"What a surprising book, a big thumbs up from me. I knew it was going to be something a bit different when I started it and it certainly is, amazing characters."

"The Deal is completely different from anything I have ever read; it is an outstanding book that covers many issues in an ethereal but definitely punchy way. Step out of your comfort zone and try it - you won't be disappointed."

"S C Cunningham has taken some popular beliefs and created an outstanding story. There are so many people who believe that finding a white feather means that they have been visited by a loved one or angel."

"The pace was really good with the momentum being kept throughout giving the reader a very dark and twisty tale!"

"The Deal is not for the faint of heart. It shows the worst of some of the worst, but excellent writing keeps the violence in its proper perspective and keeps the reader swiping pages. The ending made me smile... and exhale, but also made me aware this wild ride is just getting started. It's a ride I wholeheartedly recommend!"

"I loved the theme of the story and although this super team are there to bring justice for the victims, they really are no Angels the way they go about it. They dish quite a bit of revenge out themselves in the form of violence rather than forgiveness. It really is an all action story with re-caps into the former lives of The Unit, as to what deal they each made that brought them all together. "

"Oh my... Part paranormal romance, part mystery thriller The Deal is sure to be a hit with fans of both dramas. With enough action and suspense to keep it interesting, sprinkled with steamy scenes, and topped off with a final reveal, the book was a fast read."

"This is the first time I have read this genre before and wow, this was a lot darker book than I was expecting! Amy and her team deal with the worst of the worst, murderers, paedophiles and rapists to name a few. I really liked Amy. She's headstrong, rebellious and a little damaged after her childhood trauma and the chemistry between her and Jack was fantastic. Another one of my favourite characters was Pyke, a computer hacker, and a bit of a sweetheart who's mission in his afterlife was to punish drug dealing scum. There was also some tremendous villains that I guarantee will turn your stomach."

"A good start a series and I'm looking forward to see what happens next."

"This is a pretty cool story with extremely serious under tones. It deals with a whole bundle of moral issues where humans seem to delight in vile practices. There is a budding love story going on too with Jack (also in the Unit) and Amy. This is going to make a very fascinating series to follow."

"The premise really caught my attention, wouldn't it be great if there were people righting the wrongs and pursuing anyone who had committed terrible crimes. There were a few twists that I didn't see coming and these made for a really interesting story."

"I enjoyed the way the Unit went about their work especially Amy who's character has been through so much but came out the other side determined to deal with the people who commit evil acts. Then add in Jack to the mix which creates a fiery and unpredictable combination along with a hint of romance."

"The writing is excellent, some graphic scenes, amazing characters and the story is brilliant. Leads nicely on to a sequel."

"S C Cunningham has taken some popular beliefs and created an outstanding story. There are so many people who believe that finding a white feather means that they have been visited by a loved one or angel."

"The pace was really good with the momentum being kept throughout giving the reader a very dark and twisty tale!"

"I enjoyed the way the Unit went about their work especially Amy who's character has been through so much but came out the other side determined to deal with the people who commit evil acts. Then add in Jack to the mix which creates a fiery and unpredictable combination along with a hint of romance."

"There are a lot of dark, dark things in this book. You'd expect to be told about gruesome crimes these unique angels fight. What I did not expect was the vivid detail. The story is unique and there is justice dispensed throughout."

"Amy Fox is a great protagonist. She is far from perfect, but I love the fact she's unapologetic... there's a reason for her 'flaw' and she needs to be 'fixed'. Whatever. Amy is still learning the craft of keeping mortals safe, but she won't apologize for being a bit heavy-handed."

"With so many twists and turns I did enjoy this book, I can't wait to see what the next installment brings, as this definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. I definitely recommend it."

"This is a dark story with very realistic descriptions. I love The Unit and everything they stand for. Amy quickly fits in and becomes a killer woman fighting to protect the innocent. I also enjoyed the romance aspect between Jack and Amy. This is a great story and one that I recommend checking out. I'm excited to see what SC Cunningham comes up with for book 2."

"Amy and Jack are pretty impressive characters, and the story itself flowed quickly."

"I found the whole concept of the story immensely interesting. I would love to think that there was some supernatural police force out there dishing out karma to bullies and bad guys and watching over the most vulnerable in our society."

'Right up to the last page I was hooked and and last part had me gasping out loud. A fantastic read without the obvious story-line where you've already guessed halfway through what's going to happen. It's nice to have a few genres of book rolled in together as well- crime, rom com. Fantastic'

"Could not put this down - enjoy reading all her work. Am now desperately waiting for the next one in the series."

"SC Cunningham sent me on a vivid acrobatic journey replaying Amy's past at the right intervals. The text is detailed, flawless, and wonderful. The puzzle pieces all started to line up as I followed Amy through her transformation and inevitably towards her happily ever after. The Deal is so descriptive I felt as if I was reading line for line an investigative report.The Deal is blissfully raw and absolutely perfect. ★★★★★ for days."

"Fabulous... Brilliantly written I loved this book. Such insight and passion !!!"

"A riveting unusual story-line that keeps you guessing till the end. Did not want to put this entertaining book down - a must read. I'm impatient for the next one."

"Very enjoyable and original story. Author also links in the main character from her other books. Lovely idea and the doors have been left open for a sequel which I can't wait for."

"The plots in this book intertwine and twist and turn on many levels simultaneously, it's addictive."

"It got me! It's been a very long time since I have read a book that I, A. Couldn't put down and B. I didn't want it to end! Can't wait for the next in the series"

"Hard to put down - a must read that keeps you guessing."

"This is an engaging story exploring the serious and timely issue of human trafficking with enough light-hearted relief and balance to keep the reader engaged in a "heavenly" world where angels work tirelessly, ridding and thwarting the earth of evil people. With all the twists and unpredictable surprises, this book will keep the reader turning the pages until the end, and beyond...to see what trouble Amy Fox can stir up in Unit 9's next crime fighting endeavors. This is a quick read and will have the reader wishing true Fallen Angels busily work in the background. The characters are ethereally real and delightful."

~~~ REVIEWS ~~~

'I read a lot of books and this book moves up to one of my top 5 reads. It is very erotic and intense at the same time. I like the way it goes into the past then back to the present. It keeps you on edge not knowing what is going to happen next. I read this book in 3 days because it is one of those books where you just don't want to stop reading it. Thumbs up to the author. Very well done.'

'Couldn't put it down, totally reeled me in, had me reading & reading to the small hours. Gripping! Can't wait for the third in the series.'

'SC Cunningham has done it again! What a fantastic writer. This second book in the series is just as brilliant as the first and has you gripped from the very first page. Tara has been through hell, and just when she thinks things are going back to 'normal' things start to happen and its 'here we go again!'."

"I don't like to say too much about the story as it spoils it for other readers; all I will say is pick it up when you have plenty of time because you won't want to put it down. It's very erotic, brutal and well and truly graphic. I said in my last review of the first book it was 50 shades crossed with Martina Cole, I still stand by that! Well done Siobhan! Can't wait for the film to be released and book 3!'

'OMG!! Finished 'Unfinished business'! You certainly know how to have an ending AGAIN. Thought 1st one was good but this 1 fab. ''

'Gripping Story - I admire this author, she isn't afraid to push the boundaries. Full of explicit sex but it is pertinent to the story and tastefully done. David is a fantastic character and I liked how the psychology of the character was shown. David isn't just a mindless monster. Can't wait for the next two books!'

'I bought this book on kindle after reading about the book and author on twitter. It had me gripped from the first page! It goes back and forth in time but is easy to keep up with (some books lose you). There is a lot of graphic sex scenes mixed with brutaility but it is exellently written. The characters in the book all have seperate personalities and mix well together, the way they are all brought together is great. There are some great twists in this book, I cant wait for the next one, it finishes on a great cliffhanger! Go and buy it, you wont regret it, if you love martina cole books and 50 shades of grey this book is for you!'

'Finished reading The Penance List and now IMPATIENTLY waiting on Unfinished Business and For My Sins. This book has everything - suspense, sex, laughs and intrigue. The twist at the end left me speechless. Truly amazing book. Highly recommend it.'

'Shocking & an eye opener! S C Cunningham writes stunning accounts of the rich and famous! I was mesmerized with the way these people live and act and read the book in one sitting. All I can say is I can't wait for the follow-up to this eye-opening account of stars and athletes. Bravo Ms Cunningham - keep writing everything you have ever seen because I find it quite exotic and crazy.'

'Great novel about sex. Dynamic Characters! Cunningham has crafted an epic in proportion novel here. Her characters are sultry and as real as they can get. I recommend this book very highly.'

'I have recently listened to The Penance List on audio and loved it!!!! It's sexy, highly amusing and has the ability to really draw you in until you actually feel sorry for David... Which is great. I enjoyed it so much I have bought four copies for my friends; they just have to read it. I was wondering when the next instalment will be available on audio, I have a small child and a business so I just don't have time to sit down with the book but can hardly wait.'

'My God you shocked my shoes off. Excellent work! '

'Couldn't put it down - a real page turner. Nicely crafted and highly unusual format with all the threads coming together right at the end. It's in a category all of its own and would make a great film. I look forward to the sequels. Well done'.

'Boy, if anyone can write about sex this lady can! It's a complete turn on from start to finish - I'm ashamed to say even the sadistic bits have erotic appeal - and no writer's ever done that for me before!! I love the characters - they involve you straight away and the plot keeps you hooked right to the end.... what end? I'm going to read the next two parts of the trilogy as soon as I can get hold of them. You're a very brave lady Ms Cunningham, and I love what you've done: you've somehow given us all the things we want to read about in one. It makes you shiver, it makes you laugh out loud, it intrigues you, it arouses you... you don't feel guilty lapping up the horror because the characters in one way or another seem to deserve it (or get their revenge for it).'

'Bravo! Cunningham artfully weaves a compelling tapestry of murder, mayhem, and Martinis in her latest work, ''The Penance List." Delicious and salacious, this novel offers a new twist on the modern romance and the classic psychological thriller. It is a riveting tale filled with colourful characters, suspenseful sequences, and titillating twists. A fabulous read for those who dare!'

'Naughty, nice and nasty - I loved it! I was lucky enough to meet the author! She's utterly gorgeous and charming with sparkly eyes and a giggle that fills the room. Who'd have known she could write about such dark and sinister people? I was warned that the opening chapter is pretty horrifying - but it does prepare you for some of the horrors to come, at least! Set in London, there are characters that we can all recognise, some of whom I fell in love with. Other characters are less likeable - but only because they'd been written well! An added bonus is that the characters are developed well throughout the book by the author. I changed my opinion of one or two - but the writing allowed this to feel natural - and didn't jar as it has in some other books I've read! Gay or straight the characters are sexy - and their liaisons completely believable and add to the plot! And the twist at the end took me completely by surprise... Perhaps not for the faint-hearted but so, if you dare, pick up a copy or download it and ENJOY! xx'

'The Penance List is a compelling novel. Even though the read is 470 pages, I found myself snatching it up every chance I could, wanting to see what David would do next. The book is dark, naughty...sometimes downright nasty. Cunningham's first novel will hold your attention to the very end'.

'A thoroughly entertaining debut, The Penance List is a mind-bending instant classic. Be on the lookout for more from this immensely talented rising literary star.'

'A really good read preferably in daylight! One minute horrified the next laughing out loud, I finished the book covered in goose bumps'.

'Have to say the book is fabulous ... I'm pretending it's not my cup of tea as supposedly a girlie read but genuinely brilliant!'

'God I loved your book! It was intense, great narration, and wonderful dialogue'.

"I bought this book yesterday and have just finished it this morning. I could not put it down and have been the most anti-social person since picking it up. Siobhan, if you carry on writing books like this I will not have any friends left!!!!! It was BRILLIANT, fantastic stuff and can't wait for book two to see what Helen and David get up to, poor Tara!!!!! Well done."

"I read a lot of books and this book moves up to one of my top 5 reads. It is very erotic and intense at the same time. I like the way it goes into the past then back to the present. It keeps you on edge not knowing what is going to happen next. I read this book in 3 days because it is one of those books where you just don't want to stop reading it. Thumbs up to the author. Very well done."

'I read the penance list in less than two days.. This book is addicting,humorous at all the right moments, vivid and just pure crazy! I loved it!!! I couldn't get enough. The author has absolutely succeeded in an amazing story that has it all. Thank you ! I look forward to reading "For my sins" when it comes out!'

'A friend of mine recommended this trilogy to me. The author manages to draw you into a fast pace plot with lots of twists and turns. I've just finished the second book and normally I can see where a plot is going but the author has swept away the rug from beneath my feet!
I've also read "The Deal" from the same person. Amazingly, although two different settings/genres I hear the second book from this trilogy will interact with the characters from David. This adds yet another layer to the depth of the author's mind. The David Trilogy could easily be converted into a television series or film. I'd highly recommend reading these before they become more main stream!'

'This reminds me a little of American Psycho only so very much better! You are a talented writer and I was compelled to keep reading and now I'm frustrated because I WANT MORE! I'd not only buy this but I'd buy it for friends!! BACKED 100%'.
