Growing Apart

Twin boys born in India and separated at birth.

Growing Apart is about twin boys born in 1937 in India, of a clandestine relationship between an English civil servant and a vivacious Anglo-Indian woman. She dies in childbirth. One boy is adopted and raised in India. The other is taken by his natural father to England, where he enjoys a privileged middle-class English upbringing. The story builds to a climax when the twins finally meet in a scene where the life of one is in imminent danger.

A pacey revenge thriller that twists and turns all the way through.

Kismet

A British politician becomes an ISIS target.

Celeste Three is Missing

A nerve-tingling
suspense thriller.

A priest suffers the torture of conflict between his duty and his ingrained beliefs.

Chris is an author who discovered the delicious agony (his words) of novel writing late in life.

He’s not retired, he has simply changed professions and is now a full-time novelist.

By Chris Calder | November 27, 2019

Do you have an identical twin out there, somewhere? You don’t? Are you sure? What I am asking is this: Is it possible that, somewhere in the world, you have an identical twin about whom you know absolutely nothing? I don’t mean a double or a doppelgänger.
