Ash’s dad has returned from war. But he’s far from the hero Ash was expecting. He’s close to a breakdown, lost in a world of imaginary threats. Meanwhile, Ash’s best friend Mark is grieving and has drifted away into his own nightmares. Ash’s only escape is his lonely mountain running, training to be the stag boy in the annual Stag Chase.
But dark things are stirring. Ghostly hound boys prowl the high paths, and in the shadows a wild man watches. Ash begins to wonder if the sinister stories about the Stag Chase are true. Could Mark and Dad be haunted by more than just their pasts?

Sarah P. says: I’m so excited for Sara having arrived at this great day. We first met on an on-line writing colony before she had an agent or a publishing deal, so to see her travel this journey to success is such an inspiration. She’s a very talented writer, whose rich and haunting prose, world-building and characterisation will delight young and old alike.
In the next couple of months I will invite Sara to my blog for an author interview, when those of you who’ve read Bone Jack will have the opportunity to post mini reviews in “comments” and put your questions to her.
Wishing all the best 🙂
