Overview

Everyone has an imaginary friend. Rarely do they marry their imaginary friend. Only one has ever had their imaginary family become real.

Lewis Tumnal is a teacher of English at the county school. Quiet and uncomplicated, he lives in a big Edwardian house in the north of Wren Hoe with his wife, and a daughter of eleven years. But Lewis Tumnal and his family are the imaginary lives of Louis Tumnal, a withdrawn and lonely bachelor, ill at ease with himself and in social situations. With few friends, he goes to a night class in photography which he loves, but he keeps himself very much to himself. That is, until he meets Kathryn...

"I became invested immediately in their lives and was turning the pages frantically to see what was going to happen next ... there was a lot at stake for the main characters, so I was holding my breath the entire time."
Angella Graff, author of The Judas Curse series

About the Author

Thomas was born in 1973 and grew up in Lowestoft, Suffolk before moving to Cheshire to study a degree in Creative Arts. Having worked as an electronic production editor for science and academic publishers in Oxford, he now works as a web designer. He lives in Oxfordshire with his wife Emma and their seven cats, four chickens and two bunnies and some fish.

He's different. He's not your usual person. Lots of people can say that about themselves but with Thomas it's true. Just ask his wife! He only discovered how different in the last ten years when he discovered that he has Asperger's Syndrome, which is on the mild end of the autism spectrum. In subtle, subconscious ways it affects his writing. For someone who is, on occasion, somewhat clueless and inept in social situations, he has been praised on his dialogue. As a person he also have difficulty reading visual cues and body-language and consequently his editors often tell me he's telling too much when I should be showing. Show not tell they say and I have to really work hard to achieve that! His favourite authors are Alan Garner, Diana Wynne Jones, Susan Cooper and David Almond.
