I’m proud to announce that my new book The Man In The Water, published by UQP, is available for pre-order!

When 16-year-old Shaun discovers a dead body in the lake of a quiet mining town in outback Queensland, he immediately reports it to the police. But when he returns to the site with the constable, the body is gone. Shaun's father drowned a few years ago, and now his mum and the authorities questions whether he saw a body at all.

Determined to show the town the truth, Shaun and his best friend, Will, open their own investigation. But what they discover is far more sinister than a mining mishap or a murder, and reveals a darkness below the surface of their small mining town.

“‘The reader in me wanted to race right through this to solve the mystery. The writer in me thought I should put the brakes on and appreciate the fine writing. The reader won. I had to know. Had to. That’s how good the writing is.” Nick Earls

The Final Days of Bedlam is on very soon at La Boite Theatre. Many schools are already adopting it as a text and I’m thrilled to see La Boite’s young actors bring it to life. It’s a comedy about the end of school…forever. Learn more and book now.
