Karanda Hooke doesn’t need anybody or anything.
On her way to her sixth foster home, a crash leaves her stranded in the outback with only a backpack, a bottle of water and a faded picture of the mother she hasn’t seen in years.
This is her chance to escape her old life.
There’s only one thing in her way … eight-year-old Solomon.
Thirst is a survival story, set in the Central Australian desert, but it is a survival story with a difference, because my two lead characters, Karanda (14) and Solomon (8), don’t want to be found. They are runaways, trying to escape their future, but also running from their past.
Thirst will be released on May 1st and should be available in book stores and online stores around the country. I am planning to have an official launch in my home city of Newcastle toward the end of the May. I will post details on my blog. I hope you can make it.
