I have neglected my blog shamefully over the past five months, but I have a pretty good excuse.
Next week my debut novel, The Beach, will be published by One More Chapter, the digital division of HarperCollins. It’s out as an ebook on 21 February and as a paperback in May.
It’s taken me nearly ten years to get a published and this is my third attempt to write a novel. It’s a psychological thriller and features some of the places I visited while backpacking: Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand.
Here’s the blurb:
It should have been paradise. But it turned into hell…
It was supposed to be the perfect trip. Four friends, fresh out of university, backpacking around Thailand. But among the sun, sea and sand, something went horribly wrong…
In the years since, Holly has tried hard to push memories of that terrible summer from her mind. Now a primary schoolteacher, she believes her life is finally coming together when she meets Tom and his adorable five-year-old son, Jack.
But then, Holly starts receiving anonymous messages, showing photos which Holly was sure she destroyed years ago. Someone clearly knows the truth about what really happened. The only question is, how far will they go to get revenge?
You can pre-order The Beach now on Amazon for just 99p.
I hope you enjoy it!
