Local author, Tim Harvey’s life passion has always been music. “I have a vast music collection of CDs and vinyl records. They’re all catalogued and I have a pathetically encyclopedic knowledge of wide genres of music, bands, albums and record labels,” Harvey says.
In his debut novel, “Rollin’ Stone” (published by AuthorHouse), Harvey pours his love and knowledge of music into a story of crime and deceit that expertly renders the passion that music inspires.
Set partly in Nottinghamshire, with Thoresby Hall playing a big part, and partly in Scotland, “Rollin’ Stone” infuses rock ‘n’ roll and punk music into the story of two very different men.
Throughout the narrative, sound-tracked by tunes of the period, Harvey adds his own knowledge of music history and songs, creating a style echoing that of Nick Hornby and George Pelecanos. Of his readers, Harvey writes, “I would like people to become inspired to investigate the musicians and songs mentioned in the book – and to go out and buy more music.”
“Rollin’ Stone” by Tim Harvey is available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
