Overview

Davy has an idyllic childhood in a Close by the woods until he is involved in a serious accident. His brother Adam does not survive and from that day Davy begins to live between two worlds; one in the present and another version in 1750 where Kane a Highwayman takes him under his wing.

Whenever Davy discusses evidence of a parallel town he is ridiculed and eventually sent to a psychiatrist. As he grows into a teenager he begins to spiral out of control losing faith in his friends, family and then Kane seems to have deserted him too so he leaves to travel the world, become a rock star and escape. As the distance between Davy and his old home increases and the new experiences absorb him he thinks he might be able to make it after all.

Twenty-Five years later Davy returns with a broken guitar, no money and a trail of misadventure that has led him in a complete circle back to where it all began. Now a middle-aged man he realises that to move forward he will have to finally face his demons on their own ground. Things may have moved on in Gallows Close on the surface but the past has been patiently waiting for him and it doesn’t take long before he’s wishing he hadn’t returned.

'Some things are better left buried.'

Meet the Author

Hello from England. This is a little bit about me, thanks for stopping by!

Despite a reprimand by an English Teacher at school for having 'a little too much imagination' I continued to enjoy writing stories. I wrote my first novel length book in the mid-nineties and continued to write half a dozen more that gathered dust until I published one of them in 2009.

I simply write what is there and watch the characters grow, it's as long or short as it needs to be to tell that particular tale. The 'themes' to my stories may vary considerably but they tend to all be driven by colourful characters in different scenarios.

As Stephen King said: "The object of fiction isn’t grammatical correctness but to make the reader welcome and then tell a story."

That sums up my approach really, I hope people like my work of course but never try to target a particular audience or chase a trend. The digital age means that creative artists can get their work out without fitting into neat boxes for huge organisations.

Creative work of any kind should in my opinion be judged on it's merits by each individual who engages with it, not by mass promotion or hype.

I also try to make a short promo film for each book so feel free to check those out on the book page or at my website!
