Win-A-Book Wednesday with David Bridger!

Posted by: Jax Garren


I settled with my family and our two monstrous dogs in England's West Country after twenty years of ocean-based mischief, during which I worked as a lifeguard, a sailor, an intelligence gatherer and an investigator in the Royal Navy. I write science fiction and fantasy novels for teens and adults, and sometimes they're informed by my experiences out on the crinkly blue.

Four weeks ago she was a normal schoolgirl looking forward to the summer holidays. Now she's her family's only hope, with several lifetimes of experience in her memories and a dangerous battle ahead.

When sixteen-year-old Jessica's reclusive great-grandfather bequeaths her a haunted castle in the Welsh borderlands, she's thrust into a world of hostile strangers, troublesome Romany tenants, and a strange gift that shows her disjointed visions of the past. And that's only the start of it. She thinks she's going mad, until old family stories and the superstitious fears of locals convince her that something sinister really is going on at Kidd Castle, and all the while the gift keeps drawing her deeper into the secrets of her ancestors.

The only person who seems to understand what's happening to her is the young Romany street artist, Joe. In the face of deadly danger to them and their loved ones, Jessica and Joe must master the gift before the past imposes its terrible will on the present.

I'm thrilled that adults and teens are enjoying my gothic fantasy novel. There's a haunted castle; timeslips; patterns in mathematics, music, nature and art; past lives and loves; and a dance between science and religion.


  1. GIFTED is absolutely amazing! David Bridger's tale of history and magic is held together by one of the most irresistible young heroines ever.
