The Outback

By David Clarkson

Thriller, Horror | Paperback, eBook


When Matt joins the outback harvest trail, he is filled with apprehension. Is it really worth doing three months of back-breaking work in exchange for another year added to his visa? His new friends certainly think so, and it's not long before they convince him of the same. Of course, none of them are counting on their new boss: Rhett is cold, callous and delights in watching others suffer. Convinced that the old man is hiding a criminal past, the backpackers begin to do a little digging. Nothing, however, can prepare them for what they find... As much a horror novel as a thriller, the author draws upon his experiences as a backpacker to create characters so real that the reader will think they know them. For anybody with an interest in travel and adventure, this story is a must-read.



After growing up in the north east of England, studying English Literature at Sunderland University and failing to make it as a rock star, the real story began in 2006, when just days after my 27th birthday, I boarded a plane to Sydney, Australia, with no return ticket. I spent 2 years in the land downunder and travelled through every far flung corner of the country, earning my keep by taking up jobs doing everything from pruning grape vines to tractor driving. In my spare time I vowed to try every new experience that was offered my way, no matter how crazy. I climbed glaciers, Swam with sharks, jumped from aeroplanes and pretty much tried to live life as much as possible. During this time overseas, I was also fortunate enough to meet the love of my life; Katie. Upon our return to the UK in 2009, what was originally intended as a birthday present (a travel journal recounting our time in Asia) ultimately led to me finding my vocation in life. The travel journal soon progressed to fiction and I have since completed 3 novels and have several more in various stages of completion.
