Dominic said: “For as long as I can remember I have been creating and writing stories.

“I am very excited that ‘Gift of the Mancynn’ has been accepted by Ravenswood Publishing.”

Dominic has been working on his novels whilst studying for his A levels. He is looking forward to begin studying English and creative writing at Birmingham University later this year.

The teenager formerly attended Stanwick Primary School before moving to Bedford Modern, where he has also appeared in musicals including Guys and Dolls, Little Shop of Horrors, Woyzeck and Revengers Tragedy, which he helped to direct.
