I am a father of two great kids, Tammy (my daughter and youngest) and Calum (my son). They often drive me up the wall but I could never wish for better children.
I was born and bred in Scotland, I was raise by my aunt who sadly has now passed away. My childhood was in the most part a learning experience in school and out.
My adult life has seen great periods of unemployment interspersed with soul destroying jobs working in factories. The one job I enjoyed was working at a local theme park.
I am married, as mention above, with two kids Calum and Tammy. My son sadly takes his imagination from me. His sister though is more like her mother both in looks and temperament, so don’t get in her bad books.
I have always enjoyed writing but have other hobbies such as jewellery making, DIY, playing computer games (who doesn’t these days), of course reading. Unfortunately money is often in short supply, as it is with most of us these days, so I have little in the way to spend on them but at least with the DIY I can save some until the kids spend it for me which never takes long does it.

The opening sequence of this book begins with the tragic death of an old man and the clearance of his flat under slightly suspicious circumstances, revolving around a particular book that was in the man's possession. This seemly innocent item quickly becomes the centre of a web of intrigue, myth and death as two groups of men seek to obtain this book and the secrets it holds, for reasons that gradually become clear as the story progresses.
Young has created a set of characters that will resonate with everyone, no matter who you are. There is the loveable rogue in Joe, a mis-directed young man, there are the classic good and bad guys and of the course the unexpected helpers that arrive at just the right time. And there is the hint of a great power/treasure/knowledge that is desired by all. Even though this is only a short read, it is absolutely packed with action, fear, joy, relief, faith, terror and a few angels and demons just for good measure. I don't want to say too much but you really must give this a go.
