First novel for author who grew up in town

A Nairn based author who grew up in Montrose has released his first novel.

Ciaron Fox has release of his debut Fantasy Novel ‘No Such Thing as Home’.

Ciaron was brought up in Glasgow and spent his teenage years in Montrose.

He then spent several years in the Royal Air Force before becoming a police constable.

Having lived and worked as a police officer in both the Highlands and Moray for the past 17 years, Ciaron said he avoided the all too obvious crime-writing route and has turned his hand instead to writing a fantasy novel.

He says he has always loved traditional Scottish and Scandinavian folk tales, which although captivating; always left him wishing for just a little more substance.

‘No Such Thing as Home ‘is set in the dark ages.

It is primarily a coming of age story which draws upon Celtic and Norse mythology.

It tells the story of Finn, a 16-year-old orphan who has been brought up by his grandmother in Bruann, an isolated fishing village at the edge of the North Sea.

Finn falls in love, fails in his duty as night-watchman of the village and is exiled. He then sets out to rescue his grandmother from the raiders who have taken her prisoner.

‘No Such Thing as Home.’is available via Amazon in both Kindle and Paperback formats.
