Hello, welcome to my website. Just slip off your shoes and climb aboard. I guess you're here to look at my books, but you might also be interested in the other side of my life; my yacht, Island Spirit, which is my home, my writing study, and the vehicle for my adventures. You can catch up with those adventures on my BLOG, but. right here is the place to drill down into my life and novels, through the tabs at the head of the page, and the various hot links. In the books section you'll also find links to buy the one you fancy - I hope you will, of course - the pennies I get from Amazon go towards replacing my next torn sail or bottom clean. Stay and look around as long as you like, but before you go, don't forget to give me a FB like and/or followme on Twitter. Thanks for visiting, and don't forget to pick up your shoes.
GIRL ON A BOAT
Introducing Amanda Wheelhouse, the dynamic new name in Weatherdeck Books. Amanda's first novel, Girl on a Boat, follows a young woman's struggle with psychosis, a battle she hopes to win by confronting her demons on the wild ocean, alone and vulnerable on the boat she sailed with her father, never sure what is real and what is a product of her extraordinary mental condition.
A naked young man turns up in Haiti, claiming to have set sail from England with his parents… two centuries ago! For psychologist Dani Corby, it’s a straightforward case of Paranoid Disorder. But her professional judgement is challenged when, under hypnosis, his extraordinary tale comes to light; a vivid account of escape from his pirate captors into a terrifying world of myth and magic. The enigma deepens when a strange old woman hounds Dani with dire prophesies about her patient, and when the young man falls to a mysterious illness, she sets out on a dangerous, career-blowing mission to save his life.
I must warn readers that this story will keep you turning pages far into the night, and its paradoxical conclusion will have you thinking long after you’ve closed the book.
