Sometimes I like to sum up, or trap the essence of a book in a single word. The word for The Camel Trail is relationships. It’s all about people coming together and how they develop in a relationship.
It’s also a harrowing, gripping sinister thriller. A sensitive timeless and delicate love story. A story of mothers and their firerceness. One that’s heartbreaking and empowering. It’s simply stunning.
Two families come together and build strong and lasting friendships that will be tested to the limits.
Kevin’s abusive father is rotting in jail—until he isn’t. What happens next will have you on the edge of your seat until the climatic and poignant ending.
Merrigan: a master of his craft.
Katherine Black / Susan (Sooz) Simpson
Founder of Best Book Editors
Katherine has held almost every single job imaginable, from painting gnomes to zookeeper. She spent most of her life in the caring profession and has managed both a nursing home and a care agency. But her passion for the written language always brings her home to novel writing.
Born in Tyne-and-Wear, North-East England, she has settled in the beautiful Lake District, Cumbria, with her partner, two dogs, a cat, an iguana and a python (just don’t ask her which of those six things is her favourite!).
She specialises in content creation and social media outreach, and has been a developmental editor for hundreds of clients. She owns and operates bestbookeditors.com where she helps foundling authors polish their skills. However, after being diagnosed with a dramatic brain condition in 2022, she has had to let 23 staff go, and scale back the business. BBE is still very much open, we are just fewer and can’t take as much work on.
Katherine Black is the author of psychological thriller/detective/fantasy adventure novels.
