If you sing to the Spirits, be prepared for their answer…
The Long Dark has come and the Northlands will not see daylight for two months. Silence falls with the snow, and the Spirits roam the three Worlds. It is a time of beauty, magic and danger.
When the Spirit of the Northern Lights steals his best friend’s soul, apprentice mage Tuomas is determined to find help. However, his own fledgling power gets the better of him, and he accidentally rips the Spirit out of the sky, trapping her in human form. Alongside his feared icy companion and the mysterious wandering mage Lilja, Tuomas begins a quest across frozen tundra and into ethereal Spirit realms.
But a terrible shadow lingers just out of sight, its gaze fixed on him. And behind her composed facade, the Spirit holds secrets of her own…

The Planting of the Penny Hedge
A Detective Matthews Novel Book 1
By Chris Turnbull
When an unknown man is discovered dead on Whitby beach, it is assumed that he has drowned. However, when the police arrive at the scene it soon becomes clear that there is more to this case than a simple drowning victim.
The chief calls in newly appointed Detective Benjamin Matthews to look into the case. Matthews, originally from Whitby, has been living these past two years in York as a PC, and is less than happy with his transfer back to the harbour town.
With a relocation, a family conflict and now a new case to solve Matthews is well and truly thrown in at the deep end; and the more he delves into the young mans complex life, the darker things get.

Chris was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire in England.
The eldest of two sons Chris originally wanted to become a dog groomer and trained in this field before working on a farm in the grooming room as well as helping with the dog hydrotherapy.
After a few years Chris moved on, and found a job at Bradford University working with PhD students in the Biology labs. Chris enjoyed nealry 7 years here before moving over to York University to take on a similar, be it more senior role.
Chris now lives on the outskirts of York with his partner and their Jack Russell terrier.
Having always been a keen reader and writer, Chris loves the feeling of been drawn into a good book and the escapism into another world after a long day at work.
In 2013, after finishing his first full story Chris decided that he wanted to get it professionally edited in the hope to print it out for himself. After very little persuasion Chris finally released time travel story The Vintage Coat on Amazon and had a successful book launch in Leeds.
With the publishing bug now set, Chris is enjoying writing more than ever and has plenty of projects up his sleeve.
