Welcome to the launch of Anais Devenish’s ebook, Mystery on the S. S. Zephyr. • This story fits into the Genres of Crime, Mystery and Romance … It is easy to read. This story shows that the relationships between immigrants and locals were not always bad during our early history. In life there is not always an explanation for everything, some things are just are the way they are. It was written for research and the fun of exploring different writing techniques. • The plot has an angle revolving around: a young, single man, Mr Hartman, who lives in Perth, Western Australia, during the early 1900s. His decision to take a relaxing cruise on the Swan River to do some bird watching, leads him into a situation where he is left with more than he bargained for; this is a murder mystery sprinkled with a little romance; an unexpected romance of his own. • The writer, Anaïs Devenish, who lives in Perth, Western Australia, is one of five girls. She was an avid backpacker when younger and has spent time working overseas. Anaïs will complete a Bachelor of Arts in 2018, majoring in French with two minors of Creative writing and Children’s literature. She is a single parent with two children, who are now adults leading their own lives. When Anaïs is not writing or working she enjoys travelling, art, swimming, sewing and craft. There are just, not enough hours in the day for her, because, she also loves dance, music, netball, piano, poodles, horses, and the Romantic languages. Anaïs has always had a curious mind and likes to research and learn. • Similar books are the Canadian series of the Murdoch Mysteries first written by Maureen Jennings and then Michelle Ricci and Mir Bahmanyar, and Sherlock Holmes created by Arthur Conan Doyle is also similar. Both of these series are set in the early 20th century, like the Mystery on the S. S. Zephyr. There are also Agatha Christie’s crime novels and short stories falling into the same category. • It is different, exciting and ground-breaking because it is a uniquely Australian story set on a Swan River Cruise in Perth, Western Australia, at the height of a February heat wave. So get here it is! This story is now ready for you to access on your digital reader for your lazy, relaxing, reading days by the pool this summer.
