The bodies were buried with a secret
Now, two children are about
TRISKELLION is the first in a trilogy of thrillers for older children, written with my friend Peter Cocks, under the pseudonym Will Peterson.
Peter and I met as writers in children’s television and after working together on a wide variety of programmes (from Knight School and The Cramp Twins to Basil Brush!) it was perhaps inevitable that we would one day write fiction for younger readers. It is certainly appropriate that our first children’s book is, on one level at least, about the return to one’s roots.
Following their parents’ divorce, fourteen-year-old twins Rachel and Alex Newman are sent from home in New York to stay with their grandmother in the quiet English village where their mother was born. On their arrival, their grandmother seems distant and hostile, the locals are unwelcoming and the village itself is unsettling and sinister.
Is this something more than a natural suspicion of strangers? Is there a genuinely dark heart beating beneath the thatched roofs of this picturesque village? Against a brooding background of very real danger, the two young outsiders follow an incredible trail on a thrilling archaeological adventure with a startling paranormal twist.

“Wow! Step aside Harry Potter…make way for Triskellion and my new heroes, Rachel and Adam. Gripping, edge-of-the-seat page-turning brilliance! Triskellion is total unputdownable fiction. Fantastically exciting and really scary too. Pure magic!”
“A magical read with a mysterious paranormal setting. The only bad thing that can be said about the book is the agonizing wasit for the next two!”
