A father’s secret. A mother’s lie. A family mystery
An unexpected phone call – and Nina’s life takes a disturbing twist. Who is John Moore? And how does he know her name?
Nina travels south to see the house she inherited, but sinister letters arrive and she finds herself in the middle of a police investigation. With her identity called into question, Nina uncovers a shocking crime. But what, exactly, happened in the attic room, all those years ago? The answer could lie close to home.
The arrival of her ten-year-old daughter compounds Nina’s problems, but her tormentor strikes before she can react. Searching for the truth about the Moore family puts both Nina and her child into grave danger.

Indie Authors, readers; ebook, paperback
The Principal Judge is David James, a reputable academic and author of six novels and a collection of short stories; and he had this to say about Ox Herding:
This picaresque novel has its own peculiar charm and the fantasy is in places reminiscent of Pilgrim’s Progress, Piers Plowman and Don Quixote. The purpose is illustrative, rather than realistic; the characters are fixed and symbolic.
We are interested in the journey (the quester is the reader) its variety and strangeness, and the underlying ‘message’ of non-attachment, learning to listen, love and leave alone. A happy ending is naturally grafted on, and the territory ahead – in Jae’s case a career as a masseuse – is glanced at. Altogether, a satisfying and provoking read
