Lake District Writer

Martin Marriot

My name is Martin Marriott. I am 41 years old and was born and raised in a village called Tibshelf in Derbyshire. 

From the age of 14, I got the bug for writing after I fell in love with reading Stephen King. To this day, he’s still my inspiration and my literary hero. At 20 years old, I relocated to the Lake District, and I’ve been here ever since. I’ve been married to Louise for 20 years, and we have two sons, Ben and Jonny. The Lake District is a great source of writing inspiration for me, as some of my stories are set here.

The Pearly Gates

After a serious car accident, Kelly Robinson finds himself in a coma and also a temporary resident of The Pearly Gates. Until he wakes up from his coma, he’s placed under the watchful eye of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. But there are rules to abide by when you’re a temporary resident of the Pearly Gates. The golden rule is that a temporary resident can’t fraternize with a permanent resident.

With dire consequences, Kelly Robinson decides that rule doesn’t apply to him.

The Haunting of Cringlemire Hall

George Smeaton, a City of London lawyer, is surprised and a little bewildered when his unpleasant Uncle Samuel Smeaton leaves him Cringlemire Hall in his will. George uproots his family and moves to the other side of London to take up residency in the Gothic mansion. But only after a few weeks things start to turn sour. The servants are keeping secrets. Isaac, his youngest child, becomes unwell with a peculiar illness. Then George himself vanishes en route to a business trip in Edinburgh. 

The Queen Of New York City

Daniel Valentine, one of England’s most talented and famous playwrights, has been commissioned to finish the script for an unfinished play by the late American playwright Sylvia Ashbourne. When weeks into the project, he attends a party at the Waldorf Astoria organized by his sponsor and Patron of the Arts Sir Charles Farrington. At the party, Valentine meets the mysterious and dangerous Isabella Reed. Soon captivated by her, he ignores pleas from Farrington and his writing partner Larry Soames that Reed is bad news. Very bad news.
