Dark Waters, Deborah Sheldon , single work novella crime

'Brendan Reilly, a.k.a. Danny Boy, is a veteran of the Overlords, a Melbourne outlaw motorcycle club.

'A near-fatal accident leads him to an epiphany: he is determined to quit the life and reconnect with his ex-wife and son.

'At the same time, the Overlords are preparing for war against a rival gang, the Golden Jackals, and with Brendan’s loyalty in question he is pushed further into the war when all he wants is a way out.

'Dark Waters is an exploration of love, duty and redemption played against the backdrop of Australia’s criminal underbelly.'

Ronnie and Rita, Deborah Sheldon , single work novella

'Ronnie Spooner is middle-aged and single. He’s no-one; a loner who has mowed lawns for a living ever since he was a boy.

'When he meets Rita, they fall in love, and want nothing more than a family of their own.

'Too bad it isn’t possible. Or is it?

'What Rita asks him to do is wrong. Terribly wrong. But compared to the emptiness of Ronnie’s life so far, even wrong seems better than nothing.'
