Titles forthcoming (rat not so)

Ratty continues to be elusive, however he has been seen treading his way over the great stone slabs of riverbed in the Waitakere ranges. With his green periscope he has noted the industrious preparation of three new ebooks in the 10k series and knows that before the southern summer is over he’ll have to dry himself off, put on his scarf, and promote them. In the meanwhile, I’ll tell you that the first to be formatted will be The Desert Road, a short novella by Lynn Davidson who lives on the Kapiti Coast.

Her story is set in Turangi in the heart of NZ’s only desert, where ‘three volcanic mountains claim ground and sky’ and the three daughters of a charismatic Italian tunneller are confronted with behaviours and consequences as uncompromising as the landscape.
Lynn has published four collections of poetry, most recently in 2012 Common Land, poetry and essays published by Victoria University Press. Her poems and stories have been widely published and her novel Ghost Net came out in 2003 with Otago University Press.
Lynn has taught creative writing for many years and is currently mid-way through a PhD in Creative Writing (Poetry) at Massey University.
