It’s finally here! My YA dystopian novel Within the Ward was published by Rhiza Edge in Oct, 2021, and I’m excited to share it with the world! To buy the book, head to Booktopia or the Rhiza Edge website, or order it in at your local bookshop. Here is the blurb, to give you an idea of what it’s about:
Paige Newell can’t stop feeling–and hurting. The 17-year-old has never fit in, since her turbulent emotions and rebellious streak place her at odds with Raydale’s clinical rationality. When her best friend dies, Paige is ready to end it all. But, before she can make a final exit, she’s admitted to Raydale State Hospital. There, she is immersed in a dream reality, called ‘the Journey’. If patients finish the Journey, then they can go home.
All the Bright Places meets Divergent in this compelling YA novel that explores mental health in a dystopian tomorrow.
