Books By The Beach: Grave Bargains at Palm Beach

And here we are, stop no.10 on my Books By The Beach tour!

Palm Beach has been voted cleanest beach in Queensland three times. Jefferson Lane hosts some of the earliest and most basic of Gold Coast beach “shacks”, some on blocks of land valued in millions of dollars. There is some suggestion that these in fact predate the subdivision of the area in the 1950s, and other remnants of an earlier settlement.

The area is bounded to the north by the mouths of Tallebudgera Creek to the north and Currumbin Creek to the south. There are nearshore bait reefs along Palm Beach and offshore there are fishing reefs that are some of the most productive of the Gold Coast.

In this post I will be sharing with you about my short story Grave Bargains.

In the wake of an unforgivable act against his family, Peter is determined to bury the past and start fresh. His good intentions are challenged by a sinister stranger, who is determined to dig up his sins, and threatens to jeopardise his efforts to make amends.

I got the idea for Grave Bargains after watching American Horror Story: Murder House, the first season in the popular anthology series. For a number of years I worked on this story in bursts on and off, before finally completing it in 2017 and launching it on Halloween of that year.

Books By The Beach: The Graveyard Shift at Mermaid Beach

Welcome to Mermaid Beach, stop no. 5 on my Books By The Beach tour!

Mermaid

This laid-back and curiously named beachside spot receives its name from the cutter HMS Mermaid. Explorer John Oxley sailed aboard the Mermaid inย  1823 when he discovered the Tweed and Brisbane Rivers.ย 

Mermaid Beach was used during World War II by US servicemen, and was named Los Angeles Beach as well as Miami Beach to the south.

The suburb is bounded to the west by the artificial canals of adjacent Mermaid Waters and to the east by the Pacific Ocean. To the north is the suburb of Broadbeach, and Miami to the south.

Based on true events, my award winning short story The Graveyard Shift tells the story of Cole, a medical student who starts to experience increasingly unusual occurrences at the old hospital where he works the night shift.
