FICTION

This series of books is based on altercations between two families over the years. I have completed a trilogy of unpublished work, which are in the process of being edited, and more stories are planned. The target audience is young adult.

Book 1 – “Defiance” is a tale in the Medieval times about the importance of never giving up. The blurb reads: “In the long distant past, a teenager called Ned lives with his family in a forest. He gets into trouble with some enemy soldiers and is sold into slavery. Ned escapes to the wilderness, but can he outwit the heavily-armed warriors hunting him down?”

Book 2 – “Struggle” is set in a modern-day village and shows what can happen when victims of bullying believe in themselves. Here’s the blurb: “High-society looks down on local misfits in an upmarket village. Amongst the snobbery and gossiping, two families are about to go head-to-head. One has an idiotic plan to intimidate its way into a position of respect and the other looks like an easy target. Can the underdogs stand up to the bullies?”

Book 3 – “Uprising” has the same village as the setting, but this is in the near future. Most of the previous characters flow into this story. Despite the dystopian circumstances, hope glimmers in the face of adversity. The blurb is: “With the country in crisis, a cruel twist of fate ensures Gronk’s rise to control Snookington Village. Revenge is top of his agenda. But has he got what it takes to finish an age-old grudge?”
