Ian McClellan’s debut novel, ‘Number Nine’, was published in June 2016. It is a story of destiny in the 21st Century, and the unlikely bond between two people, each searching for calm and happiness in today's complicated and hyper-connected world. This contemporary fiction follows Miles and Sophie over the following years, through their infrequent meetings and times together.
Ian McClellan spent the last ten years of his career working in the video game industry, giving him first-hand experience of pop culture. ‘Number Nine’ draws from a lifetime of being uncool, in an increasingly cool world.
Simon Adepetun is the author of the incredible children’s story ‘The Bee Hive’; this book is the exciting and engaging story of Ben and his friend, desperate to become School Scientists of the Year, who stumble upon a treasure map in an old abandoned bee hive.
