You've found the home on the net for romance writer, LaVerne Clark. Thanks for visiting! :)

I write suspense and light fantasy/paranormal set in the beautiful country of New Zealand. A land of myths and magic, Aotearoa (Maori for Long White Cloud) has always been a storytelling nation and it is my pleasure to share mine with you.

Make yourself your drink of choice, stay a while and feel free to leave comments. I love to meet new friends.

Fantastic New Author

The BlasphemerThe Blasphemer by John Ling

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

John Ling delivers an exceptional story full of intrigue, danger and excitement.

The Blasphemer is set in New Zealand, where you wouldn't normally associate such situations occuring, but from the first couple of pages, I was convinced. Mr. Ling expertly draws for the reader the seedier, darker belly of the country and the people from all walks of life who inhabit it. He focuses on the frightening aspects of racism and fanatical religious ideas that is harboured in a scarily large number of us. After reading The Blasphemer, I was struck with the thought of how we're all capable of these feelings - it's how we deal and accept each other that sets us apart from the ones who glory in harming others for 'the greater good'. His heroine Maya, is a kick-ass character who I'm itching to learn more about. I hope to see more of her in the future.

This is an intelligent read which gripped me by the throat and wouldn't let me go until long after I'd finished it. I can't wait to read more by this talented new author. John Ling is a writer to keep an eye on.
