Watershed. Coming in November 2015.

A novel about the insidiousness of political corruption, the dangers of social injustice, the fragility of democracy and the power of family, as one man prepares to abandon all he believes in to save the woman he loves.

It’s the end of the 2020s and Australia struggles under tyranny. The economy has collapsed as terrorism escalates.

Conscript Blake Lincoln returns from an endless Middle East war, wounded and a National hero. When he meets Charlotte all he wants is to forget the war and have his old life back.

Instead, he uncovers secrets that will blow the government apart. Corrupt men seized Charlotte to silence Blake. Now he must find and rescue her, but before he can do that he needs to expose their evil agenda.

Watershed is set in Brisbane, Sydney, and Canberra. It takes in the vast wilderness of Cape York, and the raw beauty of the Kimberly, with flashbacks to war-torn Baghdad.
