A BEACONSFIELD resident has had his first novel published after imagining the plot in the middle of the night.

Despite waiting thirty years to write up his story, Jonathan E. Miller’s novel, ‘Secrets of Equilibrium’, has been published.

Aimed at 11-year-olds and above, the book features around two siblings who travel back in time to “resolve a conflict and save the world from catastrophe” after discovering an ancient stone circle under their house.

Mr Miller said: “As somebody with the attention span of a gnat, I wanted to write a book that I would have liked to read in my own youth so I’m delighted that most people who have read it claim that it’s a difficult book to put down.”
