Twelve days until release day for The Buddha’s Bone, so here’s another excerpt for you to peruse. With the Ebook, Paperback and Hardcover all available on pre-order, all there is left to do is countdown the days to publication. Woohoo!

The Buddha’s Bone is my second novel. I was inspired to write it after living in Japan for four years while working as an English teacher. Although the story and people are fictional, some of the places the characters visit are real. The main setting is beautiful Tottori, which is where I lived, though sees the protagonist Kimberly and her friends visit other locations on their travels in Nippon. With a time difference of eight hours between the UK and Japan and a thirteen hour direct flight, the jetlag is real too!
