"You can only live in a world of make-believe for so long, before reality comes calling. It always does."
In a big house in the English countryside, a reclusive and increasingly unstable author toils over a book which will close the trilogy of best-selling Jade Nexus fantasy novels.
Speculation and rumour are rife among hardcore Jade Nexus fans that their heroine will die at the hotly-anticipated book’s conclusion - a possibility against which they have begun to loudly protest via social media as the release date nears.
How do you deal with such intense pressure? How do you cope with distractions from your work such as a violent intruder, panicked messages from your agent and a potential love interest moving into the cottage across the field? And far worse than any of those problems, what do you do about the Beast in your basement?
Beast In The Basement is a contemporary horror story about obsession, revenge, censorship, blame culture and parental responsibility. A dark and twisted tale with a kick.
