BY day Scott Perrie sells windows and conservatories.

But at night and in his lunchtime, he writes.

And the first result of five years’ work is awesome.

The Wrong Tree is a huge book, a glorious epic which pokes fun at the current popular novels uncovering long lost religious secrets.

Scott’s book features the usual suspects but all with their own kink - a journalist previously restricted to music columns, a photographer convinced he was abducted by aliens in childhood, an archaeologist who packs a punch, and the most chilling assassin ever encountered.

And it also has a merry romp through history, following a secret society protecting the sacred bloodline through the ages - or not, as the case may be.

Set in Scotland - opening in a comprehensive school and moving to a Hebridean island - the action is all delivered in a hilarious style, crammed with scenes to make you laugh out loud and keep you laughing long afterwards.

“It was something that brewed inside me for a long, long time,” said Scott (48) from Lesmahagow.

“I had this ambition to write a novel, and it sort of grew in my head.”
