#TenThings about @M_L_Rayner #EchoesofHome @QuestionPress @zooloo2008 #QuestionMarkPress #ZooloosBookTours

My thanks to Zoe at Zooloo’s Book Tours for the invitation to take part in the blog tour for Echoes of Home which is a fabulous sounding book. I couldn’t fit it into my reading schedule but am pleased to welcome the author Matt Rayner to the blog today. He’s sharing #TenThings he’d like his readers to know about him.

  1. I love to read. There are so many fantastic authors out there. But if I had to choose just some of my favourite books, it would have to be:
    The Picture of Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde
    The Woman in Black – Susan Hill
    Ghosts of Sleath – James Herbert
    The Shining – Stephen King
    Eragon – Christopher Paolini 

2) I’m very passionate about adventure. I love wild camping and hiking.

3) I hate Football… I mean really hate it! Actually, is there a stronger word I can use?

4) I’m currently reading Slade house by David Mitchell

5) I play the guitar…. whenever I get the chance.

6) I stay away from caffeine. Nothing beats decaf tea, right?

7) My writing process can only begin once the house is quiet. Usually 11pm – 2am

8) I’m very keen on genealogy research. I try and travel as much as I can for research. 

9) I have worked for the ambulance service for 13 years

10) I am a father of two children ages 6 & 8

From the back of the book

After accepting a generous opportunity to start afresh, Leslie Wills, a young man from Stoke-on-Trent, eagerly begins his long-distance journey to the Scottish Highlands of Elphin, a settled village that sits huddled amongst the dominating mountains. Its people are welcoming, and the beauty of the land is great. But deep within its Highland paths, a location rests hidden from the public’s eye. A location that entices you to learn the truth of its troubled past. But once you bear witness to its sights and sounds, its presences will never allow you to forget.

Uncover the truth, Journeying back to a forgotten time. With a plot full of secrets and suspicion that will leave you longing for answers.
