Forthcoming dark fiction for children

  • The Second Kind of Darkness (expected Summer 2019). A dark fiction story for children aged 9-12. Have Grace’s parents been brainwashed? Ever since they joined the grey cult they have been angry at the world.  A scientific twelve-year-old, Grace records her observations in a turquoise notebook. But when her writing is discovered, Grace’s own parents betray her. Taken to the sinister Charcoal House, Grace remains defiant. Escaping with Rick, the cult leader’s unhappy son, she reaches Yawngrave Tower, a weird castle with even weirder inhabitants. But can Grace and her new friends hold out against the grey siege? And is Rick really on her side? Only when the battle starts does Grace learn the truth about who she can trust.
