WORK IN PROGRESS
Since 2018, I’ve been writing a novel called SOUL CENTRE, based on my short story “Third Closest to the Sun”. It’s finished and I’m currently looking for representation.
Doran Isles is an eighteen-year-old orphan with a broken mind. There are voices in his head, who whisper incoherently. But he doesn’t mind anymore. Why? Because his next four days include attending the grand opening of Soul Centre Leeds, becoming a member to learn the truth about existence and what happens after we die, and killing himself.
Panda is a depressed twenty-one-year-old gaming addict who lives in a tent outside an internet café. The online gaming world is an escape, where he can be whatever he wants to be and forget who he is and what he did. Fate brings Doran and Panda together and a friendship blooms.
Soul Centre is a controversial pseudo-religious organisation run by the charismatic Peter Randall. It holds the key to the afterlife, but it’s making the wrong headlines as its members are committing suicide and going missing. Doran and Panda visit and get entwined in a mess that has global implications.
