The Colours of the Dance

The Colours of the Dance by EJ Pepper

‘Brede is a compelling narrator and her child-like perspective on the unfolding political events shines a very human angle on this historic time.’ 

Flight Path

Flight Path by EJ Pepper

Published 2020

It's rare to read a novel that is as gripping as it is subtle. E. J. Pepper delivers a disquieting, absorbing story. Throughout she reveals our human frailties with delicacy and power."
