Last week, I mentioned some forthcoming news. Here it is!
My next novel, Shadows of the Lost Child, will be available on Amazon shortly, but before that happens, readers will have a chance to dip into the work.
You can read the first chapter NOW on Wattpad and more chapters will be coming soon.
Feel free to send me any comments and thoughts about the book.
There are ghosts, a supposedly haunted house and an element of time travel, so lots to enjoy!
You can read a short summary below.
In next week’s post, I’ll talk a little about some of the themes that inspired the novel.
In the meantime, enjoy the first chapter (and the good weather!).
The book is set in two time periods, the present and the past (early twentieth century).
Aleph Jones is running away but the house he ends up in turns out to be haunted. Or is it just him? For Aleph has a dark secret that’s changed his life.
Cressida Sewell needs Aleph’s help. Her daughter Alice refuses to speak and a team of specialists don’t know why. But Cressida has a hidden agenda and Alice knows more than she’s letting on. About Aleph.
Guinevere James is not what she seems. Disguised as Aleph’s business client, she really wants to solve a murder that happened over a century ago. But what about the children who vanished? Aleph and Alice can hear them scream.
Miranda and Thomas live in poverty. Miranda wants to protect her mother but when she seeks help from friends Ben and Thomas, they set on a path to even more trouble. Then Tom meets Alice and the past and the present begin to collide, with dangerous consequences.
