9780996396608: The Clock

The Clock is a fanciful tale of adventure in time travel that encompasses science fiction, history, suspense, and action. Teen siblings Jack and Livi Hawthorne discover a secret time portal built into the grandfather clock of their distant ancestor Lord Jonathan William Augustus Hollingsworth, IV. Set in Colchester, England, The Clock taps into the rich history of the region where the reader encounters such landmarks as The Red Lion Inn and Colchester Castle and historic characters including Charles Dickens, Queen Victoria, and Matthew Hopkins, the self-proclaimed Witch Finder General of the 17th Century. It is a tale not only of historic discovery, but of internal discovery as well. Jack and Livi Hawthorne have moved with their parents Scott and Susan to Colchester, England for the summer. Susan, as the last surviving heir to Lord Jonathan William Augustus Hollingsworth, IV has inherited his ancestral home, long vacant after his mysterious disappearance in 1896. Prominent in the manor's library is a massive grandfather clock, which was constructed by Lord Hollingsworth. Unbeknownst to anyone, that clock serves as accesses to a special portal. Not only did Hollingsworth develop a talent for constructing timepieces, but also a passion for time travel. With inspiration and help from leading scientist and literary figures of the late 19th century, Hollingsworth constructed a time travel portal. It is not until Livi discovers Augustus' hidden study that the secret of the grandfather clock is revealed. Jack and Livi are determined to explore the clock and the secret within. They devise a mechanism by which to gain access into the clock and its mysteries. Upon successfully entering, the teens meet up with Hollingsworth in the virtual world of the clock for adventures and perils in time travel. Along the way the time travelers encounter iconic landmarks, historic figures and the most nefarious villain of 17th century England. Perhaps more importantly, Livi and her younger brother Jack develop a bond that they had not had before their sojourns as Jack morphs from a confused adolescent into a brave and confident young man. Hollingsworth, having found a suitable candidate bestows upon Jack the role of "timekeeper" to carry on his work and travels through history.

About the Author:

Christopher Gayle is a board certified obstetrician/gynecologist who has made his first foray into fiction writing with his novel The Clock. Chris was born in Lake Charles. His father was a land owner and cattle farmer; his mother a school teacher and housewife. Chris has an older brother and sister. He and his wife Julie live in Bossier City, LA and have three children and one dog. Chris attended LSU in Baton Rouge where he earned his baccalaureate and LSUHSC in Shreveport where he earned his Doctor of Medicine and completed residency training. Chris is a founder and managing partner of Imagine Date Studios in Shreveport, LA. His cofounding and creative partner, Carl J. Lapeyrouse envisioned the idea of children who time travel by way of a grandfather clock and tasked Chris with developing and writing the story, which became The Clock. Chris and Carl plan to release another publication in the late fall of this year.
