Our own resident author has published a new book!
08 July 2020

Chris Hewitt works in our stores department and in his spare time he writes novels.

Chris’ new book ‘Blue Light’ is a young adult sci-fi novel that incorporates Chris’ love of science fiction and time travel.

Chris said "The inspiration was a love of science fiction, especially time travel and authors such as Blake Crouch. I wrote a first draft ten years ago when recovering from a road traffic accident, and it was only after completing the trilogy of children’s books that I decided to dig out the draft and have a re-write.

"I felt I’d taken the children’s books as far as I could, although I had more adventures in mind. Coming off the back of three primary school age books, I thought a change of tone and audience would be a challenge.

"I wanted to test my writing skills and get out of my comfort zone. Blue Light is far darker and jumps across two different times, but at the heart of it there’s a teenager placed in a situation not of his choosing, helping to try and change the future. I wanted to look at how his young adult life in the future differs to similar lives now." 

Chris has previously self-published three books for younger children:

  1. Saving Christmas
  2. The Book of Doom
  3. Paws
