In desperation Cassie is sent for treatment in an old manor house. There she meets other children just like her. Including Seth... Seth who looks so familiar. Her dream becomes nightmare. And then reality. A book about the Holocaust; a paranormal thriller; a horror story – Bryony Pearce’s debut novel spans genres in a truly unique book for teens.
Bryony Pearce writes books about good vs. evil and redemption. Her (fairly dark) books are embedded in the modern world, but with a supernatural twist. She believes that the more realistic the starting point, the more creepy the supernatural element becomes.
Her first book, Angel's Fury, is about a girl who suffers from terrible nightmares, she discovers that she has been reincarnated and that all of her lives are being manipulated by a fallen angel who is trying to destroy mankind.
Her second book, The Weight of Souls, out on August 8th 2013, is about a teenaged girl who sees ghosts ... but if a ghost touches her she has to avenge its death.
She is currently working on a book about a boy who can jump from one universe to another, based on Homer's Odyssey and multi-universe theory; there are cannibals, killer machines, crazy priests, gods and much more.
Bryony lives in a village on the edge of the Peak District with her husband, two children (a girl and boy) and cat. The cat likes to sit on the laptop while she is working.
Before becoming a writer and a mother she went to Cambridge university, then worked in Market Research.
She visits schools, festivals and events and loves it if people come and say hello ... particularly if they have enjoyed her work.
