Falling From Grace

Lots of ideas and experiences contributed to this story.  The setting of Point Nepean is a real place, on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.  To me, Point Nepean has an eerie feeling to it, and I often thought it would be a good place to set a mystery story.  At the time I was writing Falling from Grace, my son Wil was 14 and he had a recently developed passion for music and interest in guitars.  Now, ten years later, Wil is a full-time musician and the lead singer of a rock band!

Here are some reviews of Falling from Grace:
