Inheritance, and The Mentor Of Lostwood Hall
I’ve been a bit quiet of late as we were on our honeymoon. We were married last year but saved the honeymoon (and money needed) until my birthday this year. We were in Croatia (Split) and had a great time, and I also had a great birthday.
An author, thinking on his birthday.
Now I am back home and settling into the writing again. I am working on a standalone novel, ‘Inheritance’ which is now with my proof-reader and with my cover artist. I am eagerly awaiting the cover, Adjela does such great work! I am hoping that Inheritance will be available by the end of April. It’s about two guys, Ryan Blake, 25, and Charlie Hatch, 22 who meet up a few years after they left school. They didn’t know each other then, Ryan was head boy, and Charlie was something of a tearaway, but Charlie has always been in love with Ryan. Together, they set about a family mystery that Ryan brings with him when he returns to his hometown in Devon, UK. As they ork out the history, their relationship develops to the point of… You’ll have to wait and see.
As you can see, we took our bear with us.
I am also working on another Mentor novel, ‘The Mentor of Lostwood Hall’ and am halfway through the first draft. This story concerns a younger guy, Lee, aged 21 from London, who has a road accident in a storm in the Welsh mountains. He’s fleeing a bad situation at home and is lost in more ways than one. Luckily for Lee, he is found by Julian Ford, a screenplay writer who lives in a castle (Lostwood Hall) and who is himself escaping from his film industry life. Having worked in films as a scriptwriter, I reckon there’s something of me in Julian, but as for Lee… Well, he’s the kind of guy we all dream about rescuing and saving, in more ways than one. I’m hoping to have this novel out in May/June.
I’ll get back to the writing now with a reminder that if you have read any of my novels and liked them, reviews are always welcome! Get in touch if you have any comments or would like to chat about the books, and carry on reading!
