Hello lovelies! Today I have an author interview with debut novelist Dan Clark but first a little about his book:
Title: The Boy In The Well by Dan Clark
Date Published: 13th April 2021
Publisher: Darkstroke books
A time to mourn. A gruesome find. A race for the truth.
After her husband and son are killed in a tragic car accident, Carolyn goes to stay with her mother in a quiet, rural town. She hopes the break will help her cope with her loss.
Soon, Carolyn discovers that the small town holds unforgivable secrets. One she stumbles upon when she discovers the body of a young boy down a well – only to find he has disappeared when she returns with the police.
The local residents, including Carolyn’s mother, doubt her discovery and blame it on her current state of mind. Rumours begin to spread.
With somebody determined to stop Carolyn uncovering the truth, she knows she needs to prove what she saw. Not just for the boy and his family but also for herself.
Will Carolyn be able to find the proof she needs? Or will her life be in danger if she continues her search?

Author Interview with Dan Clark:
If you could describe your book in one sentence what would it be?
A suspenseful thriller that hopefully, keeps the reader guessing.
Where did the inspiration for your book come from?
Always being an avid reader of thriller and crime fiction, I wanted to create my own characters with flaws and secrets of their own.
If you could recommend just one book to read, what would it be and why?
That’s a hard one! If I have to narrow it down, I would say thinner by Stephen king. I have always enjoyed the story.
Who are your favourite authors?
There are so many to choose from, but the authors I feel most inspired by are: Stephen King, Ruth Ware, C.L. Taylor,Mark Edwards and Harlan Coben.
Is writing your only job? If not, what is your other job?
Unfortunately, no, I don’t write full time. During the day, I drive lorries. Being able to write full time is my dream and hopefully, one day I will.
What are you currently working on?
I’d love to say my current work in progress is going great. but, I am easily distracted and would usually start a new story! I am trying to stay more focused and concentrate on one project at a time, haha. Hopefully my next thriller will be out this year, it’s really hard to say!
