FICTION

This series of books is based on a protagonist named Nobody and an antagonist called Gronk. I have completed two books and am planning a prequel.  More stories are in the back of my mind.

Book 1 – “The First Nobody” is for 9 to 12 year olds. It is a tale in the long distant past about a boy called Ned and how his exploits led him to receive the given family name of Nobody. That’s it for now, but it will be about 25,000 words long.

Book 2 – “The Nobodys” is also for 9 to 12 year olds. The story is set in a modern-day almost fictional village and focusses on a confrontational situation. It is unpublished and about 25,000 words long. The theme is to show 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 a foolishly pea-brained 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 – “Nobody’s War” is aimed at young adults. The same village is the setting, but this is in the near future. Most of the previous characters flow into this story. It is unpublished and about 50,000 words long. Dystopian circumstances are used to illustrate hope 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 finish an age-old grudge?
