Gainsborough author Dan Thompson will be signing copies of his latest release, Here Lies Love, at Gainsborough Library on Tuesday 11th November from 10am to 12pm.

This novel is Mr Thompson’s third literary work to be published and his first venture into new adult fiction.

The story is set in a dystopian future in which the protagonist escapes certain torment only to find herself in an unforgiving world without sunlight.

Dan lives in Gainsborough with his young daughter.

His other works include the charity poetry book, Life Is All But A Vast Array Of Colours, and also phobia novella, The Caseworker’s Memoirs.

His next publication is currently in the works and is called The Black Petal and will be available soon.

Here Lies Love is Dan’s first foray into the New Adult and Dystopian genres.

Dan is a lover of Young Adult and fantasy fiction, you can often find him writing on his blog, writing book reviews and connecting online with other writer-type people and interviewing authors.

Dan grew up reading Enid Blyton’s The Famous Five series, secretly coming up with his own inventive adventures, and R.L Stine’s The Goosebump series, before turning to the works of Philip Pullman, Eoin Colfer and Marcus Sedgwick and slipping away into alternate realities.

He also loves a good Historical Thriller too.

Deborah Harkness, Danielle Trussoni and Dianne Gray are some of his favourite authors who write for adults.
