Jeffrey tells us about his latest book, The Sins of the Father – part two of the extraordinary Clifton Chronicles.
You’ve got a woman, 20 years old. She’s an Oxford scholar and she has to leave because she’s pregnant.
Pregnant to a man she thinks is dead. And she goes in search of him. The theme of revenge, the theme of trying to find out. There’s so many interlocking cobwebs in there.
And then there’s Giles, her brother. But is he also Harry’s brother? And is that why she couldn’t marry him?
So it’s a theme after theme after theme and twist after twist after twist because I want you to turn the page.
I want you to come to the end of every chapter and say, so what’s going to happen next?
And that’s what I like to do. I’m a storyteller. I’m not a writer.
