Night Beach

There curves and glimmers outward to the unknown
The old unquiet ocean. All the shade
Is rife with magic and movement. I stray alone
Here on the edge of silence, half afraid ...

Rupert Brooke
First published in 2012 by Penguin Books, Australia

New edition to be published May 2020 by Kirsty Eagar

Imagine there is someone you like so much that just thinking about them leaves you desperate and reckless. You crave them in a way that's not rational, not right, and you're becoming somebody you don't recognise, and certainly don't respect, but you don't even care. 

And this person you like is unattainable. 

Except for one thing ...

He lives downstairs. 

Abbie has three obsessions. Art. The ocean. And Kane. But since Kane’s been back, he’s changed. There’s a darkness shadowing him that only Abbie can see. And it wants her in its world

A Gothic story about the very dark things that feed the creative process. 

Dark and seductive, Night Beach will leave you breathless.
