A short story / prequel to the Kyle Gibbs series of novels
After countless beatings at the hands of his alcoholic father, Kyle Gibbs had a decision to make. Suck it up and deal with the challenges life was forcing him to endure, or run away and forge a new life.
Could the fourteen year old continue to cope with the ongoing violence in his life, or would he simply become a casualty of it in the end? Would he fulfil his dream of getting away from the small fishing village of Stonehaven, Scotland, to finally have a normal life?
Wayne Marinovich is an author and wildlife photographer who grew up on a farm in South Africa and spent most of his young life outdoors, learning and developing his passion for the natural world. When he was not fishing, bird watching, riding his bike or climbing trees, he was running around on top of the barn roof, fighting imaginary villains.
After a successful career as an IT consultant which saw him travel to all the places he loves writing about, he settled in the leafy county of Surrey, England where he now resides with his wife and fellow photographer, Anneli.
His passion lies with conservation and environmental issues which affect both humans and the natural world alike, and he is most happy photographing and writing about the planet's beauty and fragility.
Currently he is working on the Kyle Gibbs series, an environmental piece set in a future climate-changed world. The first three books in the series have been published and he is currently working on the fourth. Wayne is also working on a portfolio of environmental novellas and short stories, the latest release being, Floodlanders, a teenager's tragic journey in a flooded London.
