About the Authors,
Neary-Williams is the co-writing team of Andrew Neary and Ceri Williams, based in the Midlands of the UK.
The third member of our team is a visual artist based in the Netherlands. Priscila Rodriguez Aranda worked closely with us to create a cover that reflected both the content and the genres of the book.
This is the first time we are co-writing and we are really excited about how dynamic our partnership is .
The Clockmaker is the first in an upcoming series of gripping supernatural books by Nottingham based Ceri Williams and Drew Neary.
Widowed in World War 2, Annette and her young son face a completely different life as they exchange the devastation of post-blitz London for the slow pace of a small village. The house they have inherited is old, its bones still settling, creaking noises in the dead of night and the murmur of scritch-scritch in the walls. Located outside the village of Lochnagar, it’s been empty for many years.
The unfolding of how the Clockmaker made his plans, his meticulous preparations and macabre creations, all builds up to a series of gruesome, horrific murders. These have just one end in view: his release from that which has held him captive for centuries.
The sequel to the Clockmaker will be out in 2021. The Perfect Child.
What the authors say:
“The Clockmaker is a character in the much larger Novel – Optics. When we put some extracts on our website, we received acclaim, and requests to develop the minor characters further. That was when The Clockmaker was born,” comment debut authors Ceri and Drew. The authors are currently arranging a series of book launches around the local area and have engaged various local writing groups with their debut.
A chilling supernatural novel with characters you’ll come to care for, The Clockmaker will interest anyone who fears the dark – and what might lie in the shadows…
What people are saying about The Clockmaker
‘This tale is fabulously written. There are times that it could have veered off into the “campy” side of horror or supernatural but it never once did that. Instead, it is captivating and will have you mesmerized until the very last page – and then you will want more because this is the first book in a trilogy!
While this story ends well, there obviously are questions that will be answered in subsequent books – and I cannot wait for those books to be written and printed!!
The Clockmaker offers something for everyone’s tastes: history, horror, supernatural, thrills and suspense. I highly recommend it for all.”
