A Snippet from Disciples – my new book

My new novel – Disciples – is taking shape.  Comments are coming back from my beta readers; the editing is happening; the cover design is unfolding, and I am making progress.  Here is a very short snippet from one of the chapters (which still need names – or do they?)  It is just a taster but there may be more to come later …!

… It was too much for Matthew.  And Nathanael.  Leaning over the side of the boat they responded to the tossing of the waves in the same way land lovers have responded since man first went on the water.  Caught in the wind now and then, I heard the thin wail of the child in Daniel’s boat, terrified now and unstoppable by any words of comfort.  I could sympathise.  This was a real storm and we would be fortunate if every  boat survived till it calmed.

And Jesus slept in the bottom of the boat.
