1. The Hydrographer: The Clyde Steadman Story

This is a fascinating prequel to Rocking Horse Rider. The book provides the back-stories of the complex characters in the later novel. Clyde Steadman, the youngest son of Sir Henry and Edith, Lady Steadman, is educated at Winchester College and the University College London and graduates as an outstanding geologist before making a harrowing voyage to Sydney, Australia, on board RMS ‘Osterley’.

A career with the New South Wales Department of Mines is interrupted when he is headhunted by William Summer-Hayes to undertake a mammoth project at ‘Summerhaven Park’ in the Hunter Valley. William’s marriage to Stephanie Hollanday creates a partnership that will ‘do whatever it takes’ to found a dynasty and a corporate empire.

A seemingly endless drought and an economic depression in Australia are the background for a story of triumph, disaster, love, loss and great engineering works and art creations. Characters, who are forebears of the people in Rocking Horse Rider, come alive and explain how and why their descendants have benefited and managed their legacies.

2. Rocking Horse Rider

The result when two lives collide unexpectedly cannot be predicted. It might prove a catastrophe, or possibly a catalyst.

Twenty-two year old architectural intern, Rawden Phillips, has had all the benefits that nature and nurture could bestow, but he is lost. Australian heiress, Olivia Summer-Hayes, who should be running a Corporate Empire, is running away and has started making rash decisions. Suzanne Read has been commissioned to help find them both.

Half a world away Richard Barrington, a man with a fascinating personal history, is trying to juggle long-standing loyalties with the control of a conglomerate of companies.

Played out against a background of three of the world’s most iconic cities: London, Paris and Sydney, Rocking Horse Rider is a galaxy of glittering personalities searching for identity and acceptance.
