The Hill Ghost
Callan McAuliffe's debut fictional novel The Hill Ghost has scored 5-star reader reviews since its international release this year. Set in 19th century Scotland, a Tibetan mastiff sheep-dog and his eccentric seagull friend, Blue, team up to thwart a returning pack of wolves bent on savagery and revenge. Blue, an ex-seafaring bird, brings a nautical flamboyancy to the story. The Hill Ghost delves into love, concern, hope, anger, triumph, and everything in between. Both heartwarming and heartbreaking, The Hill Ghost makes it clear, this is the start of this young actors career - as a talented author.
