Shifted Code

My 8 year old son loved this book! It was an easy read and was surprised at how old the author was when the book was written. Eagerly awaiting the next book…”       


“He was very impressed by the fact that the author is only a couple years older than him. He’s hoping that Elijah writes another book soon so he can read it which from a child who HATES to read is the highest praise that could be ever given!!!!! Please Elijah wrote a whole series!!” 



On Saturday 20th October 2018, I launched my new book ‘Shifted Code’.  It was a night of pure excitement.  As a new young author, I was very nervous, and excited because I have been to many book launches, but never been on the other side of the stall.  Find out more about what happened on the night by clicking on the button below!

Shifted Code


By Elijah FrederickEditor Michelle Yaa Asantewa | Illustrator Olaleye Bolaji | Contributors Abi & Oyemhi Begho  

Bullied by Nathan and his friends, Tadeo was a tormented genius who was isolated and excluded by everyone in his class.  Through an unlucky pairing in class, a brawny Nathan and a victimized Tadeo would have to deal with the misery of working together on a computing project.

With Nathan constantly giving Tadeo a hard time and making very little effort, Tadeo is left to work on his own only to be sucked into the game they were creating for the project. Tadeo finds himself in a strange world where he learns a terrible truth about a blood curdling menace who has been reigning through fear and terror.
