Graham Wilson | 36 comments My first book in this series is kept permanently free to encourage readers to try and if they like go onto the second and third books in series 'Lizzie's Tale' and Devil's Choice'

It is a historical fiction mystery set in colonial Sydney centred around an 8 year old girl who vanishes with a school friend 100 years ago.

For most of the last year it has been No 1 on Amazon US and UK for Australian Historical Fiction and the series has had about 30,000 downloads since published.

Second edition first book Little Lost Girl was published in early 2017 and is available from some Sydney Bookshops (Abbeys, Gleebooks, Brays Balmain and Dymocks Penrith) as well as selling all over the world as an ebook.

So if interested in a suspenseful mystery of early Sydney I encourage you to download a free copy to read.

Hope you enjoy
Graham Wilson

Graham Wilson | 36 comments Many thanks Birenda,
I see you live in Newcastle and at some stage I want to write a historical thriller which explores a part of the early history of this town along with Maitland as very significant places in NSW early development and must pick your brains for source documents and ideas in this space - I have a bit based on early family history in my Old Balmain House book 1 (my great great grandfather had an iron foundry there in the 1860s) and I have often thought that there is a story in that space which could be further developed along the lines of a sequel to take this story in another direction

That's fine Graham :) And it sounds interesting! We have an author who lives at Wollombi and writes historical fiction. Her research is meticulous!
