beneath pale water
Set amidst the physical and psychological landscapes of New Zealand's southern high country Beneath Pale Water is a social realist and expressionistic novel that follows a triangle of three damaged individuals - a sculptor, a vagrant and a model - who have grown calcified shells against the world as their search for identity and resolution leads them into conflicts that threaten both their sanity and their lives. As their protective shells crack they are left vulnerable yet open to exploring new beginnings and new lives.
Beneath Pale Water is available to purchase from all good bookstores and from the Cloud Ink Press shop.

MORE THAN A ROOF
Housing in poems and prose
Edited by Adrienne Jansen, Joan Begg, Rebecca Chester, Wesley Hollis and Roman Ratcliff
More than a roof is about housing. It's about nostalgia, anger, contentment, longing, fear and much more. It brings together voices from across the spectrum - from those with no homes, those in emergency accommodation, in caravans, in cars, on boats, in rentals, or in their own house. Drawing together well-known writers and first time poets, it's a unique and timely collection.
More than a roof is available from Landing Press and all good bookstores.
