A GRANDFATHER has dedicated his first published novel to his grandchildren.
Charles Lockwood, from Newsome, has written fantasy book ‘Peter Burgin and the Lords of Space’.
And the 77-year-old has had the book published on self-publishing site lulu.com.
It’s also available on Amazon and Apple iStore.
Mr Lockwood said he had dedicated the book to his youngest seven grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He said:“It’s a book for teenagers but I’m sure adults would enjoy it too.
“I have been writing fiction all my life and have had lots of short stories published but this is my first published novel.”
The novel follows the adventures of teenager Peter Burgin and his friend Vicky as they battle with the aliens in a desperate race to save the world.
The world is in danger as a race of technologically advanced monsters from outer space, with the ability to take on human form, take over.
