It’s been a long time coming but I’m pleased to be able to share my new young adult thriller, The Island which will be published on 21st January 2021.
I really loved writing this book. It’s packed with tension, fear and paranoia but I explore grief, guilt and mental health too, and the ending makes me cry each time I read it. You don’t have to be a young adult to read The Island, you just need to enjoy a good story.
Here’s the blurb:
Lost meets The Hunger Games in the thrilling new young adult novel from C.L. Taylor, the Sunday Times and million-copy bestselling author.
Where your worst fears are about to come true…
It was supposed to be the perfect holiday: a week-long trip for six teenage friends on a remote tropical island.
But when their guide dies of a stroke leaving them stranded, the trip of a lifetime turns into a nightmare.
Because someone on the island knows each of the group’s worst fears. And one by one, they’re becoming a reality.
Seven days in paradise. A deadly secret.
Who will make it off the island alive?
