Here’s the blurb:

Ancient powers are stirring.

As Luke continues to develop his skills as Felis, he finds himself hunting, surviving and using feline instincts, as well as fine-tuning his powers over nature, becoming more powerful than he’d ever dreamed.

However, Luke’s parents find him tearing away and struggle to understand how their son is changing so much – not realising the true extent of it. When a new transformation forces him to leave, he flies across the world and learns how to survive, meeting others who share his powers which opens up a new world to Luke, one he must learn to co-exist alongside.

New cover for MYOPIA

MYOPIA is my YA novel exploring the effects of bullying and how a victim responds with creative non-violence.

It is dedicated to anyone who’s been on the wrong side of bullying. Being a victim is never your fault. The problem is with the bully NOT you. Stand strong and always believe in your individuality.

One reviewer wrote: “Myopia is a poignant, beautiful and heart-wrenching story that resonates with truth, hope and above all, the immeasurable power of human compassion . Thoroughly recommended.

Here is the new cover:

Myopia - new cover

The shadow and background represent the sinister nature of bullying, but the clenched fist also suggests a triumphant gesture of victory over adversity.

The old cover presented an abstract section of an eye, to fit in with the title and theme of short-sightedness. Its pixilated nature shows the blur of myopic vision.

Now the new cover gives a stronger indication of the drama, angst and struggle confronteded by Jerry and other characters in the novel.

As well as a new cover, the text has been edited and revised into a fresh edition.  If you know any teens or young adults looking for a great read then click on one of these links.
