If I don't make it as an author, I'll settle for being a Salman Rushdie tribute band...

Background Information

If in one book I can make you laugh then make you cry, then I've done my job...

I was inspired to write my novel by twenty years of experience working with people with severe learning disabilities. I write in mixed genre because life is mixed genre- that's why one of my favourite writers is Deane Koontz.

Tasting the Wind:

Christmas Eve, 1976: a man dies, tied to his bed in a Victorian Mental Institution.

Andrew saw what happened. Eddie saw what happened. But their severe learning disabilities prevent them from communicating what they have seen.

Ten years later, the hospital is destined for closure and Andrew and Eddie move to a bungalow in the community.

Enter Martin Peach, who has come into care work for all the wrong reasons. And as if the challenge of helping six severely disabled people settle into a sometimes hostile community is not enough, his new manager, ex-nurse Della Belk, has a deadly secret which links her to the new residents...

Can Martin and his colleagues put together the fragmented clues about Andrew and Eddie's pasts before one of them becomes the next victim?
