    Inspired by entries discovered in the Southampton Dockmaster’s Log Book for 1912, The Master’s Tale tells the story of the Titanic in the Captain’s own words. From the moment he leaves home on the first day of that final, fateful voyage, we are seeing the world through Captain Edward Smith’s eyes, meeting his officers, feeling his tension as Titanic prepares to sail. Observing the passengers as he walks the ship, the Captain reflects on his life at sea, from recent events with their resounding consequences, back to his first trip with his half-brother, aboard a sailing ship bound for Hong Kong. The death of a passenger on that first voyage has coloured his life, introducing him to the beautiful but unattainable Dorothea Lang. Forty years have passed, and yet she – or is it her ghost? – seems to be aboard Titanic, heading with him for New York… William T Stead, famous journalist and medium, holds a séance aboard, racking up the Captain’s antagonism towards him. But as Smith dismisses the warnings, tensions mount within. Memory takes him through turbulent waters to the happy island of his marriage, and back to more recent storms: a fateful collision with a Royal Navy cruiser, pressure from White Star, and this pre-retirement voyage. Throughout his life he’s been a lucky man, but as time and coincidence come together in Titanic’s final, tragic hours, Captain Smith knows his luck has run out – and with it, the lives of his passengers… ‘Takes the familiar account of the last voyage of the Titanic and examines it from a fresh perspective’ – Rubery Book Award 2012

    Who was Bram Stoker – and why did he write Dracula? Through the words of Damaris Sterne, daughter of an old seafaring family, we meet a man escaping from the pressures of his life in London. As the two become involved in an intense, dangerous affair, he is introduced to the wild sea, the wrecks, and Whitby’s local legends – while she is shown glimpses of the wider world beyond. Evocative and mysterious, Moon Rising opens out to become not only the gripping story of a tragic love-affair, but a revealing commentary on the genesis of an immortal classic. ‘Shamelessly enjoyable… shades of the late Mrs Cookson and a dash of Anne Rice.’ Independent ‘An engaging tale… The star of the book is the locale of Whitby. Its bustling harbour and brigantines, its damp cottages and smoky inns, its winding stone steps and alleyways, its abbey and windy clifftops are all wonderfully evoked.’ The Times
