My first novel to be published was launched last Saturday.

My writing group put on a Writing Expo, aimed at showing what we are about and how prospective members could benefit from joining us. As part of the Expo, three members, including myself, launched our books.

My book, Ben’s Challenge, is a mystery, coming of age, historical novel, aimed at kids from ten to a hundred years of age.

Set in 1950s ruralAustralia, it is the story of Ben Kellerman, a thirteen-year-old who loses his father in a hit-and-run crash. After several months, the local police have been unable to find the driver of the car that killed his father.

Ben, with his Polish immigrant mate, Joe, decides to conduct his own investigations. In the process, they suffer discrimination and bullying, and meet with danger and adventure. They also experience the trust and support of the local shop-keeper.

Ben struggles to come to terms with his father’s death, and to find his new place in his family. All the while, he wonders if he and Joe will ever find the person who killed his father.

Ben’s Challenge by L.M. Visman, has been self-published by the author.

It is available as a Print-on-Demand paperback from the printers, CreateSpace at their web-store: https://www.createspace.com/3613285 or from Amazon.com.
