Above the Strandline: an off grid writing retreat on Isle
Martin, a community owned island. The amenities are simple,
the island beautiful, the welcome warm. The weekend will
feature a mix of tutored workshops and free writing time.
You will also have the option of a one-to-one mentoring
session. There is no electricity, so leave your laptops and
tablets behind and bring pens and paper. We will however,
have the luxury of flushing toilets, a warming fire and
delicious meals cooked on the island using local produce.

General calamity, personal loss, and unlikely friendships forged.
Coming soon… the true story of a very special Scottish island.
The world has entered a new Dark Age. There is no internet, no infrastructure, no government, and nature is biting back. The Before times have gone; food is scarce, and the world is a hostile place where things are not always as they seem. Sorrel’s home is destroyed by a gang of marauding mutants who snatch her brother, Eli, and her boyfriend, David. She sets out after them, embarking on a journey fraught with danger. In The New Dark trilogy we follow Sorrel on her quest in a world where survival depends on the kindness of strangers, and close friends make the bitterest of enemies.
