Australian of the Year 2010 launches Melbourne author

MELBOURNE, Australia - Sept. 9, 2014 - PRLog -- Author and youth psychiatrist, Brendan Murphy explores the psychological and moral landscape of a brutalised boy-turning teenager in the first instalment of his Sebastian and the Hibernauts fantasy series. In Beyond The Gloaming, a cowardly Yorkshire lad must brave the ghostly Gloaming if he is to save the Celtic dreamworld of his ancestors.

Beyond The Gloaming introduces Hibercadia, a world brimful of hunkypunks and gobbleratches, quizzing glasses and magic shillelaghs, mechanical fireworks and night rainbows, tragedy and joy. Phantasm Books, an imprint of Assent Publishing, Pittsburgh, PA, will publish the book on October 1st.

Brendan Murphy is Author Ambassador for Library for All, a New York/Melbourne based non-profit organisation committed to providing digital books to children in the developing world. A portion of all proceeds from book sales will go to Library For All.

The launch party will be held on Wednesday 1st October, 6-8 PM, at Australia’s oldest, most illustrious jewellers, Kozminsky, 421 Bourke Street, Melbourne, 3000. Professor Patrick McGorry, Australian of the Year 2010 and International Youth Mental Health Advocate will host the evening.
