The Faithful - A Mimosa Tales Adventure by Linda Thackeray
A lone survivor with a monstrous story to tell.
Six mismatched lawmen trying to find the missing settlers.
Can they succeed in their mission...or are they going to become the hunted?
Kris Jensen is certain that he had seen it all as the deputy marshal and then the Marshal of a small town on the frontier, Mimosa. Outlaws, shootouts, stagecoach robberies, an angry mob determined to lynch an innocent because of the colour of his skin, none of it surprises him anymore. But when a call comes to seek out a convoy of missing homesteaders, something about it makes his skin crawl.
As it turns out, there’s one survivor: a six-year-old girl named Heather. And her story terrifies six grown men. While trying to reach the Organ Mountains, the settlers have wandered into Owl Canyon, a place even the fearless Apache avoid. And the ancient people they met there are hungry.
To make matters worse, friendships are tested, while Adrian’s past as a conman is catching up with him with the arrival of an old friend whose lust for gold may lead them to disaster.
The sequel to The Hanging takes Kris and his friends on their scariest mission so far. Are they going to survive it, or is their friendship going to end up destroyed while the hungry devour them?
About The Author...
Born in a village in Malaysia and delivered by underpaid midwife, and Ann, an irritable new mother (who wouldn't be after 48 hours in labour?), X was named by a deranged grandmother with too much creativity for her own good. Once out of her pain-induced stupor, Ann decided to give her new daughter a proper middle name to avoid the risk of being put into a home later in life.
And so, she was called Linda.
Linda was an unremarkable child, save a few notable incidents, the discovery that a pot lid is not a substitute for Wonder Woman's tiara (five stitches), four-year old don't need to shave (no stitches but lots of toilet paper) and utility truck drivers are not necessarily qualified operators of their vehicles (seventy stitches).
At eight, Linda received religious enlightenment when she saw Star Wars at the Odeon Theatre and hence began her writing career.
For many years, the cages of various pets in the Thackeray household were littered with pages from Linda's scribblings. Subjects usually ranged from whatever science fiction show was on television or at the movies. There was lots of Star Wars.
At 17, Linda moved to Sydney, Australia and was disappointed it was not occupied by Paul Hogan types with big knives and croc skin jackets but pot-bellied blokes with zinc cream and terry towel hats. Linda's father (also known as that bloke who buys me stuff to piss mum off when she's mad at him) settled in the town of Young, a community of 6000 people with no movie theatre.
Linda survived this period in the wilderness by raising kangaroos and writing original works but eventually got saddled down with the necessities of life and though she continued to write, work came first. Work, HBO, comic books and rent. It's a kaleidoscope.
Even the kangaroos left out of boredom.
In 2014, Linda decided to start writing seriously again. Mostly because Australia's strict gun laws make it very difficult to 'go postal' in the workplace. Moving to Woy Woy, which is Aboriginal for 'Big Water', she's dipped her toes into the Indie pool and found she needs a pedicure. Her books are labours of love and championed by her friends on Facebook.
Eventually Creativia Publishers, appalled by Linda's inability to conduct any marketing, offered to publish her books out of sheer exasperation.
Supported by two cats named Newt and Humphrey, she spends her days trying to write novels while having unclean thoughts about Michael Fassbender and Jason Statham, sometimes together.
