FINALIST in the 2012 KINDLE BOOK REVIEW BEST INDIE BOOKS 2012 (Young Adult Category)

Purple is a fantasy novel set in modern day London. Originally intended as young adult fiction it’s now receiving reviews from readers of all ages. With a cast of quirky characters and plenty of sharp dialogue this paranormal mystery beautifully combines the supernatural with a touch of humour to create an inspirational adventure with a spiritual message.

"Sharpe’s debut novel applies a fresh fantasy premise to a classic coming-of-age tale. This book's great strength is its keen insight into the nature of human fear, hope and love. Clever and affecting in a vividly imagined world." Kirkus Reviews

“A rare discovery - a book for all ages. It's not often that a story resonates and captivates in such a satisfying manner.” Stef Mcdaid - editor in chief @WriteIntoPrint

After a purple storm sweeps around Planet Earth, stealing millions of people, four teenagers struggle to make it alone in London. Drawn together by a series of bizarre coincidences, Ellie, Midge, Scott and Marty soon find themselves entangled with a bunch of interfering pensioners. Among the cast of players are flamboyant hairdresser Mr Rupert, Pearl the loud-mouthed tea lady, and June, a psychic, who travels the world on her motorbike. As the tranquillizing effects of the Purple diminish, greed and the lust for power take hold. Penny Treasure, leader of the Decision Makers Council, dreams up an idea that could destroy the world forever. In a desperate hunt to find the missing, clues are pieced together and some shocking secrets come tumbling out of the closet.

About the Author

At the age of twelve Graham regularly danced around the lounge to Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights. Now forty-eight, he still hasn't decided what he'll do when he grows up. So far, he's worked in an ice cream shop, trained as a hairdresser, studied sociology and psychology, written for and performed with a touring theatre company, and backpacked across far-flung countries with loose change in his pocket. Graham now combines travelling with writing and he completed his first novel 'Purple' during the sleepless, jet-lagged hours spent in hotel rooms around the world.
