  3. Just a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed Undine Love, and I have preordered Flyaway straight away, even though I am a big wuss about horror and hope it’s not too scary. I read that Undine Love was set in the Lockyer Valley and I was immediately intrigued. I am an engineer for Main Roads and I go to Gatton Clifton road alllll the time, so it was amazing to see something set in the area (if you need any geology details for this area, hit me up anytime, because I‘ve looked at slope stability problems there for a decade now).

    • Hi Meera — Thank you so much! I hope it isn’t *too* scary. Personally I think it’s more Gothic than horror (I hope!). And thanks for the offer!
