BEYOND DARK WATERS

BY DES BIRCH

Blurb

From being cast out from the group, to losing his way in the dark lake at night-time, Ben will never betray his friends. Even when he feels a vicious fang slowly piercing his flesh, he knows what he is doing is right. He will never submit to the bullies, racists or indeed anyone who tries to steer him from the path he is taking. Ben is growing up very quickly and soon he gains many followers. This leads to a multitude of challenges and to one of his friends giving his life for Ben. As an eleven year old he manages to avert a war and bring pride to different communities.

For Ben, falling into the lake and entering into different species presented many challenges, but the rewards will stay with him forever.

Beyond Dark Waters plots a young man’s rite of passage into adulthood, seen from the viewpoint of different species in and around a lake.

Meet Author Des Birch…

I was born in Limerick, Eire but moved to England when I was a baby. I moved from Buckinghamshire to Norfolk when I was ten, but attended a private school near Southampton. I have two grown children whom I have raised on my own since they were ten and eight respectively. I work in engineering but have gained a BSc and a Dip. Pol. Con. with the Open University. I also gained a TEFL diploma with which I spent two years teaching in Spain. I now live in Norwich with my wife Julie. My earliest memory of writing a story, was just after I learnt joined-up writing, and I have been writing ever since.
