Afterimage is my second novel for teens and young adults. It is a sequel to Distant Early Warning and has been in development since autumn 2023. As of January 2024 it is in the outlining stage.


In 1965, a teenage medium flees to the Land of the Young, escaping her mother’s pagan cult… Only to emerge 50 years later, unaged, and learn that they are hunting someone new: her best friend’s granddaughter


The novel will expand the worldbuilding of my first story but will also hold its own as a standalone. It tackles darker themes in a less high-concept manner than what Distant Early Warning did. These revolve primarily around trauma and the impact it has on the teenage mind.
