Timber Varden

Timber Varden

Q: Where did the title come from and what does it mean?

A: While I was doing some research into the Grey Wolf, their other breed name caught my eye. They are also known as Timber Wolves, and from this the Timber part was born. I started to play around with it and looked at other words that I could put with it. I wanted something that was different and unique to what it meant.

While the book based predominately in a forest setting, it came to me as being a place of solitude, of peace often found in gardens but Garden wouldn't suit the title that I wanted but I liked the idea around it. I replaced the G with the V and felt it had a nice ring to it, the words flowed together and created an image of discover within my mind.

It was then that I knew the title was right for the story. It's been there since before the book itself began and never once have I felt the need to change it.

The Synopsis

Christian Ash-Croft, a 35 year old writer, struggling to reach a deadline for a novel that he's yet to write. With time running out, stress levels soar to new heights. His life to him rapidly falls apart before his eyes. His relationship with long term partner Amelia Lockhart has been growing increasingly rough. Many arguments have passed between them, but as deadline looms, temperatures rise and it looks like his relationship could be all over.

With no work to show for the months that have passed. A decision is made and a call to the publisher is needed. Exchanges are made, the date is moved, and further choices are made. With his relationship looking increasingly over, Christian takes himself to his secluded Log Cabin which resides in Timber Varden. Only one road leads in and out, with no other soul around for miles, it's the perfect place for him to seek solace.

What comes next he doesn't expect nor anticipate. He knows of the Varden Pack but knows nothing of the legend that befalls Timber Varden. The legend of Timber Varden has it that the spirit of White Wolf can often be seen running with the Varden pack and yet not be one of them. Should anyone venture too far into danger or off course, the Wolf will find them, and lead them to safety. But there is more to this wolf than meets the eye.

What lies in wait for Christian in Timber Varden?
Will he finally get that novel written and make the new deadline?
Will he patch things up with Amelia?
Only Timber Varden holds the answers.
