Release Day!

No Right Thing is out in the world! A big thank you to Crwth Press for loving the story and shepherding it through to publication.

There’s always a profound sense of satisfaction on book release day.  There’s joy – a job well done! – and a touch of trepidation too. Will it find a home? Readers? Will people love it as much as I do?

These days, of course, Covid-19 has changed the book release dynamic. Book store signings, author talks and school visits are out of the question. Thankfully, people are still reading. Some indicators suggest they’re reading more than they were before.

No Right Thing is a young adult novel about 16-year-old Cate Sheridan who believes in always doing the right thing. So, when Cate sees a homeless man about to be hit by a truck, she does the only right thing: she pulls him to safety. Cate quickly realizes that one good deed can have catastrophic consequences. Eventually, after heartache, tragedy and a devastating betrayal, Cate learns that sometimes people have all the right reasons for doing a very wrong thing.

You’ll find purchase links to Crwth Press and some of the larger chain stores on my books page. I’d also like to give a huge shout-out to smaller independent bookstores who work hard to provide us with books. Many will take phone orders deliver. For an independent bookstore near you, please check out this map:
