***WATTYS SHORTLIST 2018***

On first glance, Bright Star seems like the typical nursing home.

On second glance...perhaps not.

Things are starting to become rather spooky, and it is up to Probable Cause and a unit of Alzheimer's patients to figure out just what is causing these strange and terrible events.

A shadow in the corner.

An overly green plant.

A lost book in the shower.

A boy with blue hair.

A menace in the night.

With no one to believe her, save her delusional gang of old people, Probable races to uncover the mystery before it grows too late.

Or rather, not too late. Unfortunately for those at Bright Star, there is plenty of time.

So, reader, sit back and begin this journey. Begin at Chapter One. Begin to know Probable. Begin to see a side to nursing homes you never knew existed.

And never forget, reader:

THE END IS NOT NIGH.

Quirky. Love it. Love the way it’s narrated, sort of like someone writing something in real time as opposed to a reflection on past events—if that makes sense.

Fantastic! This is a brilliant first chapter.  I'm loving your writing. I don't have many followers but I'm going to share this one anyway.  You have nowhere near enough reads for a book this good.

Oh my goodness, I've only just started reading, and I just love your writing style. Probable's voice is so vibrant!

Fair enough,  it definitely would be less spooky at that hour.

Nice twist I legit thought Probable was their birth daughter... were those eyes hers?

I read 'believe me they tried on the mantel' and my mind exploded with unwanted images
