While Nyeta is kayaking on a river in the wilderness with her schoolmates not far from the outdoor pursuits school they attend, a massive quake turns the earth inside out, cracks it wide open.
Cold, shocked and terrified, the six surviving students set off on a terrifying journey to the city to see if their families have survived.
Along the way, they encounter boiling rivers, erupting mountains, dead and dying animals, the unhinged, those who have already turned to the dark side and a gentle hermit deep in the ranges. They have to fight, hunt, care for their wounds and learn tolerance and self-sacrifice.
Praise for Upheaval:
"What a ripper! I walked every step of the way with those teenage survivors, and loved the story. It's vividly written and very thought-provoking. Yes, it's fantasy, but totally compelling. It's the invention of a clever mind....." Amazon review
"I liked the interactions of these teenagers trying to adapt in a new world. Just knowing each other in passing prior to this quake, they had to adapt as a group in order to survive. Highly recommended..." Amazon Review

About the Author
But the settling down bug caught up with me. I returned to New Zealand, husband in tow, bought a house, started up a business in the fashion industry and had a baby.
For many years we worked, worried, renovated houses and homeschooled our son who now has a degree in architecture and is studying for a second degree in design, specialising in photography.
We currently live in a house overlooking the Pacific Ocean and I work in real estate.
In my free time, I am a photographer and food blogger. www.strandsofmylife.com is a blog about my food journey towards great health.
In my other free time, I write books. Writing is a channel for ideas and feelings which manifest themselves in words to create a story with the ability to make readers feel. I hope I manage to stir the emotions in readers which I experience while writing my novels.
I now have eight published books. I read all the time - anything from women's fiction to thrillers. If I don't have a book on the go, I feel bereft and centreless. Yes, that's a word - I think.
