What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I live in Chester Uk and I am currently writing a novel based in Chester. I decided to write some children’s short stories about the locations in the City. The Eastgate Clock inspired this story. It is the 2nd most photographed clock, after Big Ben, in the UK.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I wanted to keep them traditional to catch the readers attention. A clockmaker, gypsy and a duke. After all the story starts with ‘Once upon a time…’
Once upon a time, many years ago when clocks ticked much louder, there lived a talented clockmaker in an enchanted walled city in the northwest of England. The elf-like man was a master craftsman with an exceptional gift. He had served many a crowned head, but his latest assignment was to be his greatest. Egan Bagley was to create one of the most magnificent clocks the country had ever set eyes on.
