Description Dark Winter de John Hennessy:
Romilly Winter is no ordinary heroine, just a reluctant one. She has a gift. She can see the future. But can she see far enough? The world in which she lives is under attack - the dead are rising, and evil follows her at every turn. Will she be able to save herself - and the world?" From the Diary of Romilly Winter, October 14th. "I've had two years to prepare for this. In that time, I have never told a soul. Of course, my Nan knew. She'd bequeathed me the mirror, after all. Now, maybe tonight, tomorrow, in a few days, the event that I don't want to happen with all my heart, will come to pass. I'm not ready. I know I'm not ready, and yet, it will happen nonetheless. Nan had this thing in her possession for nearly seventy years. She had told me I simply had to be at Rosewinter, prior to my sixteenth birthday no matter what objections my parents raised. She said I was 'special', and was the only one equipped to deal with what was coming. The problem is, I don't feel special, I just feel...different, and in all probability, that isn't going to be good enough. In just two days time, I will be sixteen years old, and if anything my Nan said is remotely true, I will be lucky to survive that long...." AUTHOR NOTES: With themes of witchcraft, ghosts, demons and paranormal horror, Dark Winter: The Wicca Circle is not for the very youngest of readers.

He dreams of being a successful author, but this dream sometimes gets pushed aside for the dream of wanting to be Batman. Gotham fixations aside, he is a huge fan of the paranormal, he will actively visit reported ghost haunts and it could be said that they served as inspiration for his debut fiction novel- Dark Winter: The Wicca Circle.
