Emergence is, as defined by the Oxford Dictionary, the process of becoming visible after being concealed. It is also the chosen name for my new book!
I’m currently at the stage of working through the second draft (no idea on publishing date as of yet). Here’s a quick summary:
‘Widower John Gimmerick realises he’s been a lousy dad. In a bid to change, he takes his six-year-old daughter Seren to visit his childhood home, in the northeast of England, where he’s agreed to do a spot of house-sitting for his mother.
When Seren starts talking of a ghostly woman who visits her room each night John isn’t too concerned, after all she already has an imaginary friend. But when his own nightmares begin to merge with reality, and when unexplainable things start to happen around the house, he realises that by revisiting the past he’s stirred up things he’d tried hard to forget – as well as something that should never have been stirred in the first place.
Now, with a profound evil trying to take Seren away, reclusive John must face up to the horrors of his past.
And what he discover runs deeper and is far more terrifying than he could ever have imagined…’
