It's an adventure yarn - if I'm being pompous I call it an 'eco-quest' - certainly the moor is as much a character as the people and animals it follows. Click on the cover for more...
It was edited by Kim Jewell and the cover is by Bradley Wind.
Having caught the YA bug, I then wrote Samael. The idea emerged, pretty well fully fledged, on a train journey from London back to Exmoor. My agent loved it and at one point it looked as though we might even have a bidding war on our hands. But then the Icelandic volcano cloud hit the London Book Fair, and somehow its momentum was lost, the moment passed and Samael has never found its forever home. One day I might get around to self-publishing this anguished tale of love, magic and bad timing. Or maybe not.
The second in the trilogy is also written and lies languishing in dusty files on my PC. In Tanit the story moves from Exmoor to London. The stakes are higher, the story even darker.
Yes, my covers are rubbish!
If you're interested in reading more, Samael has its own blog (somewhat neglected, rather like the book itself). http://samaelstory.blogspot.co.uk/
