Lights Over Emerald Creek: Volume 1

Hague Publishing
Free sample

Lucy Wright, sixteen and a paraplegic after a recent car accident that took her mother's life, lives in Queensland on a 10,000 acre farm with her father. When Lucy investigates strange lights over the creek at the bottom of the property, she discovers a mystery that links the lights to the science of cymatics and Scotland’s ancient Rosslyn Chapel.

But beyond the chapel is an even larger mystery. One that links the music the chapel contains to Norway’s mysterious Hessdalen lights, and beyond that to Saturn and to the stars. Lucy’s discoveries catapult her into a parallel universe connected to our own by means of resonance and sound, where a newly emerging world trembles on the edge of disaster. As realities divide, her mission in this new world is revealed and she finds herself part of a love story that will span the galaxy.

About the author

Shelley is a well-established, award-winning author with 36 published novels, many in the genre of children's and young adult fiction.

Ursula K Le Guin wrote of her novel Spirit of the Mountain in 2010: 'A fine strong delicate story of a girl in mortal danger who brings herself to ask for help from powers she does not understand. Funny and agonisingly true.'

Shelley’s career took off in 1991 in South Africa when her young adult novel Freefalling won the Maskew Miller Longman Award. In 2003 In the Shadow of Inyangani was a nominee for the Macmillan African Writer’s Prize run by Picador/Macmillan/BBC World.

Shelley was born in South Africa, has lived on five continents and now lives in Queensland, Australia where she teaches high school English by day to support her writing habit by night.
