Golden Promise by Heather Whipp

Golden Promise by Heather Whipp

033015-Golden_Promise_Front_CoverIt is 19th century London and transportation to Australia for petty crimes remains the easy option for the English judiciary. So when young Matt Tobin becomes embroiled in the crimes of his older brother, he is forced to leave London aboard a transport ship and start a new life in the Antipodes.

Unlike his older brother, Matt is ambitious and strives to make a success of his life. Working hard to acquire a range of skills and cast off the shame of his convict background, the boy grows into an industrious employee and settles into life on one of the new colony’s sprawling sheep stations.

Things go well for Matt until he meets Sarah, the spoilt and determined daughter of his employer. Despite his single-minded focus, Matt is unable to ignore her amorous advances and the heat of their desire soon results in the announcement of an unplanned pregnancy, and the wrath of Sarah’s self-righteous father.

The couple marry, and after their attempts to turn virgin bush into a profitable sheep property fail, they set off for a new life in a burgeoning gold mining town. But soon Matt’s past revisits him, with a force so powerful that everything he values, including his marriage, will be tested to the limit.

Kindle

A compilation of 13 macabre twist in the tale stories, not for the faint of heart.

Where do dreams end, and reality begin? Sometimes the boundaries are not so clear cut.
To quote Edgar Allen Poe “Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?”

Gigolo

Barry always planned everything down to the last detail. His final plan was the most important, and nothing could possibly go wrong. Could it?

I Can’t Go Out There

Rachel had every faith in her growing abilities as a Clinical Psychologist, but she was soon to find that attending lectures about phobias would never prepare her for being confronted with the real thing.

Happy Now

The way we see our world determines the way we treat it, and others…There is a limit to how far even the meekest of us can be pushed before hitting the breaking point.

No Ticket Required

The Casual Vacancy

The Casual Vacancy

Kindle

When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock.
Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils… Pagford is not what it first seems.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?

A big novel about a small town, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults. It is the work of a storyteller like no other.

Book – The God Particle Series

Book - The God Particle Series

book 1-3A SIMPLE TALE OF SUBATOMIC PARTICLE METAPHYSICS

In the summer of 2008, a long-awaited scientific experiment was started at the CERN particle accelerator near Geneva. The experiment involved the high-speed collision of subatomic particles and the objective was to prove the existence of the Higgs boson, more commonly known as ‘The God Particle’.To the great disappointment of the worldwide scientific community and the relief of many people who were concerned that this experiment might trigger a reaction that would destroy our planet, a technical hitch caused the experiment to be abandoned at the crucial moment.

Book is the tale of a humorous journey that began in the chaos of that failed experiment. God Particles; both elusive and mysterious, contain properties we are only on the brink of understanding. So their ability to evolve into intelligent beings and dramatically affect our life on this planet should come as no surprise. That’s not quite how the humans in this story see it!

Includes Books 1 to 3.
