Seven Deadly Sins - a YA anthology
I love this book series for young adults, where each volume covers a separate sin. The team behind the series is great to work with and I'm pleased to have a story in each of the three volumes published to date (Pride, Sloth and Envy).
PrideMy story: A Mother’s Pride
Shy Ruth can’t believe her luck when she is befriended by popular student Laura Mortoe. Laura appears to have it all: brains, beauty, and parents who dote on her. Before long, however, Ruth glimpses her new friend’s darker side. When the Mortoe family take both girls on a weekend trip to the coast, Laura’s behaviour spirals out of control - with tragic consequences.
SlothMy story: Tangled Threads
Promising art student Raine loves her boyfriend deeply—but his slothful ways drive her crazy. When her self-portrait is included in the department’s first exhibition, she is excited and nervous in equal measures. Davie promises to support her at the launch party, but Raine has her doubts. If he fails to turn up for this important event, can she (or should she) forgive him?
EnvyMy story: Petrolhead
Although Josh’s family is better off than Ricky’s, the two boys have always been the best of friends, linked by their joint passion for cars. Josh can talk to Ricky about anything. All except the things that really matter, like the way he feels about Louise.
As resentments bubble beneath the surface, an unexpected windfall sets the three of them on a fateful course.
All proceeds will be donated to the charity First Book.
