After losing his wife to a drunk driver, Joshua Raymond’s only wish was to show his young stepdaughter, Georgina, the country where her mother was born and meet her estranged family.

However, after an unexpected car accident leaves their rental in a ditch, Joshua wakes to find Georgina missing. He is concussed, bruised, and covered in blood not his own. When a passing car stops to help, an unwitting stranger claims to have seen Joshua at a local gas station.

Yet, according to her, he was alone.

Nicky Shearsby

Born in England, breaking into serious novel writing wasn’t something Nicky began in earnest until taking early retirement. She spent two decades running businesses in graphic design, magazine publication and web development before setting up an organic vegan skincare manufacturing company. She has written several non-fiction books including training courses on nutrition, skincare, self-help coaching and business mentoring, and is trained in psychology, life coaching, counselling and nutrition.

Nicky’s serious passion is for fiction writing. For as long as she can remember, she has been fascinated by the human mind. Our emotions, how we think, those nonsensical things we do, the struggles life too often throws our way. Because of this, her writing reflects the questions she feels are not asked often enough. Nicky’s writing pushes boundaries, challenging reader perspective by tackling complex issues through powerful characterization.

Nicky’s work asks serious questions that promote deeper and more profound thinking. Her aim is simple; to open up emotional and inspirational thinking that guides others within their own lives, helping them to see things differently. We all struggle, and escaping into fiction is the perfect way to unburden a busy mind, whilst hopefully learning valuable life lessons along the way.
