Ships and Secrets
by Bhat Boy

Set in an age of exploration, Bhat Boy’s vivid fantasy is a fast-paced page-turner illustrated with maps and drawings by the author, perfect for young readers and adults alike.

When everything Brunet has ever known is destroyed in a fire, he discovers he is not even who he thought he was. Taken prisoner with his friend Handrew, Brunet is sent on a perilous journey across the sea to attend a school for mapmakers, Charters Hill.

Charters Hill turns out to be a forbidding place of secrets and shadows, its only friendly face being the brilliant but bossy Margatha. She helps them keep clear of trouble, but when Brunet saves the Queen from certain death on the ice, they find themselves drawn into a dangerous world of plots and political intrigue. Here the sinister Cardinal Crosswatch’s silent nuns do his spying and no one is safe, not even Brunet’s far away mother.

Working for Barclays Bank in the City of London in 1992, Bhat Boy narrowly escaped death in a terrorist attack when a bomb was detonated in his building. This life-changing event made him decide to pursue an art career full-time. The now-famous Gherkin was built on the site of his former workplace, it is a monument to his decision and one of modern London's most iconic buildings. Today, Bhat Boy lives with his husband in Canada's National Capital where he writes and paints full time. For more information go to
