Dear Reader,

Everything that can possibly happen to humans, happens in schools, usually in the compressed period of one academic year. Boarding schools are especially intense, hermetic, mission-driven communities. As a retired teacher and headmaster, I couldn't have asked for better writing material.

In my second novel, Rachel Bickham, a young teacher, has just been appointed head and is confident of success. But when an enraged talk show host attacks the school, broadcasting a sex scandal involving a student, Rachel has to come up with a daring, go-for-broke strategy, and the battle begins.

Write me at for a chance to win 1 of 5 copies.

Thank you,
Stephen Davenport
