Solihull Editorial 26th Nov, 2016   0

A FORMER Solihull student is building his reputation as a published author, after getting a fiction trilogy published.

Ross Turner, an alumni of the Sixth Form College, is celebrating the publication of the final book in his fantasy series, The Dreadhunt Trilogy.

The 24-year-old has already written the first two books, entitled Marcii and Reaper respectively, and is looking forward to the publication of the final installment – Midnight – next month,

The dark fantasy series follows Marcii Dougherty, a young woman whose home is being ruled by a tyrant who accuses people of witchcraft and of summoning demons to besiege the town.

Marcii finds herself caught up amidst tortures and executions and then even she herself is found guilty of witchcraft.

Speaking ahead of Midnight’s publication, Ross said: “The only two things I’ve ever known that I’ve always wanted to do are to write, and to serve in the Royal Air Force.

“I have been fortunate enough to fulfill both of those dreams and I hope more and more people enjoy my work for many years to come.”

While the trilogy is Ross’ first, it is actually his third literary series – having previously written six other books, including two-book The Tamarack Series and two-book series entitled ‘The Redwoods’.

His other two books were called Voices in the Mirror and Albatross.

Ross was a student at the College from 2008 to 2010, studying A Levels in English Language, Mathematics, Physical Education and Geology at AS Level.

He is currently working on a prequel to the trilogy, which will be published in 2017, as well as juggling his writing with working for the Royal Air Force.
