The City is a dark and dangerous place but amongst the desperation and despair there is a ray of hope, weak and insubstantial, but with the potential to light up the world.
Jeremiah Tully has a single joy in his life – the silver flute his mother left him. Mute from birth, the flute is his voice; but the mystery of why his mother abandoned him is left unanswered. Isolated because of his disability, and his mixed-race heritage, he struggles to find meaning for his existence.
The metropolis is awash with demons and other horrors, can he drive them back – would that gain him acceptance? The silver flute is inscribed with the musical notes of a powerful melody that could be used as a weapon against the invaders – but there’s no guarantee that it will work.
Then one day a stranger comes into his life and all hell breaks loose…

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I used to work in a call centre and my desk was next to a huge window that overlooked the iconic art-deco Littlewoods building, on Edge Lane in Liverpool. In between calls, I would gaze out at the building and one day it struck me that it would make a great location for a story. I developed the idea further, over a number of weeks and hence, The Land of Midnight Days was born.
