About The Author

An aspiring computer whiz who started writing as a way to avoid his dissertation, Marc Townsend, turned to writing as a career because his insanity had to go somewhere. He lives in Plymouth, England and currently resides in a rental house constantly invaded by his family, his friends, and a mad dog named Poppy. Entirely lacking in a sense of smell this often leads to such fond questions as ‘What does this unpleasant thing smell like’ with most answers invariably being, chicken. Most of his works are in the fantasy genre where the laws of physics are guidelines and Zombies have human rights too (being dead doesn’t stop them being human). After a few short story publications his début release  is The Ninth Bridge, a dark and witty novel involving characters who really should have known better than to leave him in charge.

Welcome to Bridgetown where gold flows like a river through the streets, into the pockets of the cunning and cruel.

Today the master of the ninth bridge is dead, his son missing and presumed eaten, and now all that power and influence are there for the taking. There isn't a resident alive who wouldn't try and claim that power for himself, and when the Mayor announces a competition to discover who will be the new Master of the Ninth Bridge, they will prove willing to climb over their neighbours to take the prize. The competitors are driven, ambitious, and have years of connections, favours, and influence within the city to exploit to take the prize. Just imagine their faces if an upstart nobody from out of town was thrown into the mix. A Winters man, a family name almost as infamous as the town itself. As I recall, the last chap with such a name was burned alive in his own factory, but I'm sure this one will do a little better. Well...He's probably going to die. I give him
