Read full description of the books The Thornthwaite Inheritance:When I first saw this book, I thought it would be a good one, but I didn't expect it to be the GREAT one.
Lorelli and Ovid was twins, and was attempted to kill each other since no one could remember.
Every character seemed so real to me.
Lorelli and Ovid might be twins, but they were different,
Lorelli had never been in love or had any friend before in her life, so she was ready to believe in anyone who was good to her, Ovid, on the other hand, was never trust anyone, he had been alone for so long that he never trust anyone else.
Ironicly, the only person Lorelli didn't seem to trust was her own twin brother.
This story was a perfect combination of a humor and dryama, every character has their own issues and reasons.
Read information about the authorGareth first started writing when he was very young but it wasn’t until he was in his early twenties that he completed his first novel. Having had it universally rejected he wrote a novel for children called Who Killed Charlie Twig, which received an equally unimpressed reception and remains rightly unpublished to this day.
Some years passed during which Gareth met his future wife, Lisa and began a career in TV, working on shows such as The Big Breakfast and Richard & Judy. Then one day he found himself having lunch at the offices of Bloomsbury. He mentioned the unpublished book to a nice lady called Sarah, who politely suggested that he should send in the first three chapters for her to look at (and most likely dismiss, she thought to herself). Gareth returned home and excitedly told his wife this news, who gently explained that the book he had written actually wasn’t very good, but reminded him that he had recently begun work on a much better idea. This turned out to be good advice. In 2007 Bloomsbury published the first of four books in the series The Dragon Detective Agency and have since published The Thornthwaite Inheritance, Space Crime Conspiracy and The Considine Curse. He has also written a shorter story, Perry’s 5, published by Barrington Stoke and a series of books called Ninja Meerkats, published by Stripes.
Gareth now divides his time between writing books, producing TV programmes, spending time with his wife and son, Herbie and playing the slightly ludicrous number of stringed instruments in his front room.
