Without further ado, here's the cover (and the back cover) for my new book, Children of the Rush.
It has been so exciting writing a new series, and trying something totally different - historical fiction.
The gold mining history in New Zealand is fascinating - just imagine thousands of people who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a precious metal buried in the ground. Men quit their jobs, left their families and walked a hundred kilometres through mud and snow and ice to reach the goldfields. It was a lawless, crazy world, and one in which I've delighted in placing two resourceful children. They've surprised even me with their bravery and grit, and their ingenious minds.
I really hope you enjoy getting to know Atarangi and Michael, and enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Children of the Rush is due to come out on November 30, 2022, but you can pre-order the book now by clicking here and it should be in your mailbox by December 1. Also, sign up for my email newsletter here and I'll be in touch!
Here's the moment the advance copies turned up at my house.
