A HORRIFYING incident at Invercargill’s iconic water tower features in Southland author Storm Reece’s new erotic crime thriller Master’s Legacy
Although the water tower scene was pretty horrific, “it is meant with love”, she said.
Master’s Legacy, the third book in the Master Files Trilogy, is set in Wellington and Invercargill. It is the story of Dylan Tyler, a man of wealth and power, whose past sins come back to haunt him.
Reece said she had wanted to feature Southland in her novel because she loved living in the region.
“I absolutely love Southland and plan to live here to the day I die,” she said.
Originally from Australia, Reece and her family moved to Southland in 2001 and they now considered the place home, so much so that Mrs Reece officially became a New Zealand citizen earlier this year.
“[Featuring Southland in the story] was my way of saying thank you to the people of Southland.”
Reece, who writes under the pen name Catherine Taylor, has been writing all her life, but she first became a published author in 2012 self-publishing through Amazon, she said.
Master, the first book in the Master’s Trilogy, had been her best seller to date. It made the long list of the United Kingdom novel writing award, in the top 250 from 3200 entries.
