Article appearing in American Online Magazine -

December 6, 2008 was the launch of .CLAN., a new novel

set in the Borders of Scotland which spans 700 years from the

13th century right up to the present day. But this is not simply a

work of history, it is a tale of supernatural plots and intrigue that

encompasses both historical and current themes as Good and Evil

vie for power in the modern World.

David Elliot, an executive in the IT industry took a year out

to write the book. Three years later, his first novel .CLAN. is

published and is now on sale. The story is told from the perspective

of the author, who at fifty seven years of age, frustrated, out of

work and with three failed marriages behind him embarks on a trip

to the borders of Scotland to try through his ancestry to find some

validation of his life.

It is based primarily around Hermitage Castle, allegedly one

of the most haunted sites in Britain and features many of the heroes

of Scottish history including William Wallace (.Braveheart.), Robert

the Bruce and some lesser known, but equally real and interesting

characters of border legend.

According to Elliot, .My research into my family

name revealed a fascinating history which encompassed

the greats of Scottish history. But when I discovered

other real people like William de Soulis who

conspired to kill Robert the Bruce, and the fact that he

practiced wizardry, allegedly sacrificed children and is

.apparently. boiled to death in lead from his own castle

roof - then even a man in his late 50.s working in the

IT industry can be driven to give it all up to write a


Accompanied by his daughter, son-in-law and

his beloved grandson, Thomas, Elliot finds that far from

bringing answers via his bloodline his very name has

led his family into unbelievable danger.

700 years of history threaten everything he holds

dearest in life and the family encounter horrors and

threats as myth and the real history of the .The Bloodiest

Valley in Britain. combine.

Border Reivers, mythical creatures and heroes

of Scottish history enter the story as the evil Lord William

de Soulis embarks on his vile plot to assume

power of an unsuspecting world. Only one thing stands

against him . a family desperately trying to protect a


Their only weapon is their love of family. the

power of their .Clan..

Reviews .

"It.s a great read. In his youth my father

and some friends tried to stay the night in Hermitage,

but they were driven out by 10 pm.."

Madam Margaret Eliott of Redheugh, Clan Chief

of the Elliots.
