The Journalist: "(An) expertly done study of a reptile brain at work."
"5/5 - (The Clearing) made my Top 10 Best Books of 2013... Read this book, you will not be sorry!"
The Caribbean and island of Saint Lucia – from its current glamour to its remote and eerily beautiful forests – are expertly described by Newman and the sense of place in the novel is very strong.

The Journalist: "...about 1/3 of the way through, all heck breaks loose."

Dan Newman has spent much of his…. Jeez. Look at that. I’m giving myself the third-person treatment. Let's not pretend I have "people" to man this site. We both know it's me.
The basics; I’m an Englishman by birth, a Canadian by immigration, and amalgam of several wonderful places in Southern Africa by virtue of the time I’ve spent there growing up.
I’m a citizen of the beach thanks to my formative years spent in the Caribbean, and I’m a self described Australian enviator (yeah, I made that word up – what of it? It means someone who envies all that someone else has), thanks to the time I spent there at Grad school, and the hours and days I spent trying desperately to look like I knew what I was doing on a surfboard.
Official Canadian launch of THE JOURNALIST was held at A Different Drummer Books in Burlington.
