The Cundy is a coming of age tale set in the mid-90s in my hometown, Horden, in the northeast of England.
I took inspiration from local history, specifically from the time when Scula the Danish Viking warlord ruled the area of East Durham in the 900s. It blends Norse mythology and the occult.
I also took inspiration from the schooldays and pop culture of my own teenage years.
My imagination has always erred on the dark side and as a kid I remember being fascinated by the actual cundy (a water conduit) in Horden dene, so it’s hardly surprising that The Cundy came to be.
At present it’s only available on Amazon. I do hope to make my work available on other ereader platforms in the future, but until then you can always download the free Kindle app to your phone/tablet and read it that way.
