What do you do when you have an out of body experience? If you're like Bevan, you start looking for answers to that age old question - is there life after death? But Bevan's search brings him closer to death than he really wanted, almost losing his life in a serious car accident. What he does lose, however, is his left leg below the knee. It's a cruel blow and circumstances are not made any easy by the advent of strange dreams which follow the events of the Waikato War fought in New Zealand in 1863. Bevan attributes these to the strong painkillers but when they continue outside of hospital, Bevan starts to search for answers. Who is the Maori warrior Haki and what is his connection to Bevan? As his life becomes more complicated and events spiral out of his control, Bevan can only find the answers in another time and place.

About the Author

D C Grant started writing at the age of 16 influenced at the time by S E Hinton author of The Outsiders, and knew that she would always be known by her initials. She wrote on and off over the following years, occasionally losing the plot when life got in the way but always mindful that having a book published was on the bucket list.

This finally happened in 2007 when her Young Adult book In Too Deep was published by Scholastic NZ Ltd. This was followed by High Speed and Where the Flag Floats published by Pear Jam Books in 2011 and 2013 respectively. Both books are adventure stories for the 8-12 age group.

In July 2013 the follow up to In Too Deep, Three Times Dead, was published by Standfast Publications Ltd.

D C Grant writes primarily about boys because she reads books for boys. Her favourite authors are Lee Child and Bernard Cornwall and with these influences she was never going to be a romance writer.

Her interests include military history, target shooting and rugby union, unusual pursuits for a girl but primary sources for plot ideas, however she has been known to do the occasional crosstitch and even turn her hand to knitting.

D C Grant currently lives in Auckland, New Zealand but was born in Manchester, England and lived for twenty years in Durban, South Africa. She lives in a New York style loft apartment with an aging Fox Terrier called Milly and a slightly psychotic cat called Candy.
