Paul Wigmoreabout this book: I had already started writing this book when a friend came back from a trip to China and on her return she brought with her a lovely gift for me. You guessed it... a Tapestry.
It was so beautiful and emotive, I just had to find a way to fit it in to the story somehow, and well that's when the story took on a whole new direction. It was originally meant to be a story that was based around Gavin and Michelle and what was slightly different about her.
As with a lot of stories, once I had my inspiration it really did take on a life of its own, although Michelle is still a large driving force of why Gavin does the things that he does, she is no longer the main story.
It's the dragons that fascinated me as when I was a child, I was always in awe of the ancient dragons that I would see in festivals, and yet I had always thought they were monster type beings to be scared of. Once I began my research I found this to be furthest from the truth.
My cover has been designed with Clara and the dragons in mind. Clara is the psychic that has to defeat Gavin. Once she finds out why she been left The Tapestry in her Grandmothers will , she is then set on a journey upon which there is no turning back.
The tale is partly narrated by a mysterious storyteller with a dark sense of humour, who loves to interrupt you to impart a certain nugget of wisdom, or to introduce another character, just as you are feeling beginning to feel a little safe.
I have been greatly influenced by great authors such as Stephen King, Clive Barker, James Herbert and Dean Koontz to name a few, and I hope one day to influence someone else with my stories of the dark, disturbing and macabre.
