Book 2 of the Children of Sinai series
Hope Meadows is now a thriving community of survivors, following the world-changing revelations made by The Fathers. They live and work together to follow the guidelines set down for a kinder, more tolerant future, and their number is growing every day.
A Ute medicine woman inherits the double-edged gift of visions of her own, and, following their confusing messages, she leads her diminished group to Hope Meadows. It becomes clear that an ancestor’s prophecy, and those of the old tribes, is to become a reality… but they come with one final warning for mankind. Their ancestors, and those of the Hope Meadows founders, are inextricably linked, and their communities must now work together to preserve the world for which they have fought.
But old enemies are gradually building their plans against them, and all too soon they realise that the solution could prove as deadly as the threat.
Clarke Nixon is author duo Shelley Clarke and Terri Nixon, who first met while working together in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Plymouth. They quickly became friends, and when Shelley had an idea for a story, Terri, already an established author, helped her to shape it into a novel and get it into print. Not only were they compatible colleagues, but they discovered they were a great writing team too.
Shelley Clarke was born into a naval family in Kent in 1958, and consequently moved house a lot as a child. She had ambitions to follow in her father’s footsteps and join the Royal Navy, and to become a carpenter, but these were not female occupations at that time. So she learned to type… which has come in jolly handy for putting her stories first onto paper, and now onto screen.
Shelley is a keen painter, poet, and karaoke enthusiast; she loves mad family get-togethers, hates olives, ironing and gardening, and currently lives in Devon with her husband Kev, and their two Tibetan Terriers Nena and Pepi, who make them smile every day.
Shelley often forgets she is a grown-up.
Terri Nixon was born in Devon, but grew up on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall, where she discovered a love of writing that has stayed with her ever since.
She also discovered apple-scrumping, and how to jump out of a hayloft without breaking any bones, but no-one’s ever offered to pay her for doing those.
Terri writes family sagas for Little, Brown, and thrillers for Hobeck Books, under R.D. Nixon. She has also written horror, as T Nixon, and contributed to several multi-author anthologies using a number of variations on her name/s. She might be forgiven for not knowing who she is on any given day.
