West Coast of New Zealand

Doing research when writing can be great fun. In this case I was exploring a beach on the rugged west coast of New Zealand’s South Island looking for the jade pebbles that can sometimes be found in the recently disturbed shingle along the  high tide mark (where the stones meet the sand).
at the officeThis isolated area is awesome. At times when walking the beach here, you feel you’re the only person on the planet. I hope you get a chance to read  my new thriller Above High Tide that is set in this amazing part of the world.

New Thriller set on New Zealand’s rugged West Coast now available


high tide look insideSynopsis:

Investigator, Sam McKee, would rather enjoy himself fossicking for jade and artefacts on the rugged West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island than worry about the stranger he’s seen digging a grave-like hole on the river flats and staring at a young girl in the local village.

Lydia would rather be living with someone other than Mr G, but she doesn’t have a safe exit strategy and Mr G isn’t the sort of man a girl says no to.

Mr G wants it all. His brothels make him plenty of money, but that’s not enough. His property empire, held together with blackmail and extortion, is under threat, and he will do whatever it takes to keep it.

Sam will need all his skills as an investigator, diplomat, and gambler if he’s to satisfy a violent egomaniac, especially one who’s out for blood. Can he save the life of someone who’s just made a stupid mistake without risking his own, or will he end up buried Above High Tide?

Writing and Location – New Zealand’s West Coast

Here are some photographs I took while researching my new novel Above High Tide due out in April 2013.  Above High Tide is a thriller set predominantly on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.

As a writer I find having visual references a great help. I’m lucky to have such an amazing landscape to work with. The rugged West Coast never ceases to inspire.

A view from the lookout.

The pancake rocks.
