Review of The Sea Pool:
Apart from being very easy to read I couldn’t put The Sea Pool down as I kept wanting to know what had happened; a sure sign of a good book. You have done a remarkable job and it is hard to believe that this is your first novel. Through my psychologist eyes I was so impressed with the multi-layered structure of the plot. What rang true to me was, that the lives of many individuals whom I have seen over the years, are so often shaped in exactly the way that you write, with layer upon layer of seemingly coincidental events that, despite their seeming randomness, have a compelling fateful order about them. The whole structure of the book is great and I marvel at how you must have held it in your head and then managed to get it down on paper, I’m sure a lot of hard work was involved.
