Shaper

by Stephen Brooke


Ted Carrol had found his 'last place.' A place where he could live quietly and build surfboards and where all the kids called him 'Shaper.'


His settled existence was not to last. Into Cully Beach swept Michelle and her daughter Charlie, two women escaping a dark past. How could Shaper have known he was going to fall in love?

 

Surf and suspense, smugglers and self-doubt, combine as Shaper must solve their mystery and that of his own future, in a tale both serious and funny, romantic yet real.

Waves

by Stephen Brooke


Surf shop owner Ted Carrol was happy, perhaps for the first time in his life. It was time for him to settle back into a quiet existence in Cully Beach, now with the woman he loved beside him.


It was not going to happen. Someone had framed his friend, Chief of Police Bill Cotton. There were rumors of corruption in city hall. A mysterious developer had plans for his sleepy neighborhood.


And an old flame chose just that time to come back into his life.


Once again, surf, suspense, and self-doubt combine as Ted solves the riddles of the present and of his own dark past, in the follow-up to ‘Shaper.’
