Where do you wear your scars? Inside or outside?
Finally, Rain Master has lift off. On September 14th, we held a launch party at the October Gallery in Bloomsbury, with the most amazing Caribbean cooking followed by ten pin bowling American style. Here was the invite -
And the venue, October Gallery… the staff were just fantastic and so supportive. There was a fantastic exhibition going on at the same time by an African artist on Transformation, beautiful sculptural pieces made out of metal, and they somehow really seemed to create the perfect setting to this book. The chef made the most beautiful Caribbean cooking which was devoured!
Thanks to everyone who entered into the spirit of things and celebrated the birth of this book…
Here’s the link to the book and a brief synopsis underneath.
On the same day Ayrton Senna crashes his F1 car in the San Marino Grand Prix, 14 year old Lewis Murphy is left reeling from the shock news that his parents announce their divorce. You don’t want to watch your parents turn into teenagers, especially if you’ve just become one yourself. When Lewis’ dad takes a job as a mini-cab driver to buy him a superfast racing kart, Lewis is catapulted into the dare-devil, fast-paced and cut-throat world of karting, where some families will stop at nothing, including violence, to win.
Caught between the richest kid in karting and a feisty girl-racer with dreams of her own, Lewis is guided by the fighting spirit of Ayrton Senna and a mysterious mechanic with a crazy dog to find his own way to win on and off the track. Shortlisted in the Artists’ and Writers’ novel writing competition, Rainmaster is a coming of age, family drama, action adventure about life after loss, and how to endure the bone-breaking and heart-wrenching crashes of life, love and racing.
