Sorrowline

By Niel Bushnell

Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Children's, Action & adventure | Paperback, eBook


Twelve-year-old Jack Morrow is used to life being complicated. His mother died five years ago, and his father is now headed for prison. But then Jack discovers he’s a Yard Boy – someone with the ability to travel through Sorrowlines, the channels that connect every gravestone with the date of the person’s death – and he is quickly pulled into an adventure beyond anything he could have possibly imagined. Finding himself in 1940s war-torn London, with his then-teenage grandfather, Davey, Jack soon realises that his arrival in the past has not gone unnoticed. The evil forces of a secret world are determined to find him – and to find out all he knows. As Jack struggles to survive, he comes ever closer to unlocking the dark secret at the heart of his family, and to – just maybe – changing his own destiny...




When he was ten years old Niel Bushnell made a long list of things he hoped to achieve later in life. One of his main ambitions, lodged in between becoming an astronaut and drawing comics for a living, was to write a novel. The plan was to do this before he turned thirteen, but it's taken him a little bit longer than that. His early love of comic books eventually took him in a slightly different direction: a career in animation. He’s worked as an animator on several features films, computer games and television shows, and eventually established his own animation studio. But Niel continued to write until his elusive first novel, Sorrowline, was completed, some decades after this thirteenth birthday. He’d like to take the credit for it, but he swears there is something living under the stairs that whispers secrets to him when no one else is around. Niel lives in his native north-east England, where the voices under the stairs continue to influence his career path. He hopes that he might one day become an astronaut and set foot on Mars. SORROWLINE was published by Andersen Press in January 2013 and the sequel, TIMESMITH, was published in March 2014. Rights to both have also been sold in Germany, Brazil and Thailand.
