My novel is the first of 9 books surrounding the character of Dill Mortimer who is fascinated with the supernatural world, convinced it exists.
The book uncovers mysteries and becomes haunted by a dream whilst attempting to ignore mysterious phone calls by a young woman.
aimed at teenagers, themes include death, the supernatural and friendship.
As a child, I was one of the very few people who were never affected by the terrifying tales of goblins, ghouls and ghosts, or of werewolves, witches or vampires.
I think it was safe to say that I was completely enticed by them. Enticed by the bogus longwinded stories of the supernatural world that surrounded us all in everyday life.
Since I was in high school, my fourth year, year 10, I was forced to feign an aversion to these ‘silly childish stories’ however my best friend Simon Cain (who also shared my secret obsession for the supernatural beings) convinced me that there was no reason that two 14 year old boys couldn’t possess a secret appeal to the land of make believe. Our other (more annoying) friend Andy ‘Andy Pandy’ Shepherd didn’t understand why we enjoyed it so much but I suppose that’s why Simon and I were as close as we were. We went to each other’s houses nearly every day to share our collection and theories and stories about the paranormal world that lived in our imagination. They were only stories and they couldn’t harm us after all.
But then on my 15th Birthday, everything changed. Simon had produced a pair of tickets for us to embark on a journey that would change my life forever.
We went to the MUSEUM OF MYSTERY.
There we encountered some of the most spectacular creatures. But it was the worst mistake of my life.
One mistake could change everything, but you would never know what would happen.
You can only be certain of two things. That you live and that you die… Or you become like me.
Due to all the happenings I will reveal in my book, I will thank you to take note that I can’t divulge obvious information like the name of the town I live in and other information.
My name? Dill Mortimer
And I was murdered.
