Warrior is a try-hard carbon copy of and , writes JIM SCHEMBRI

In 1984 'The Age' newspaper was shaken to its core by a catastrophic event. Jim Schembri had entered the building. He has been there ever since, stealing stationery, complaining to management, swearing at his computer and doing his best to introduce a T-Shirts-are-OK dress code. Ocassionally he writes stories, and has worked across the paper in general, finance, arts and features. He now concentrates on writing about film and TV. In his own time Jim is a novelist and children's book author. Jim was born in 1902 and is 112 years old.

While on work experience with a TV news crew, 16 year-old Cobey Miles suddenly finds herself in front of the camera covering a breaking news story about two bodies being uncovered in the ice. She proves an instant hit and her burgeoning modelling career starts to skyrocket. But when she sniffs something fishy behind the scenes at the station, Cobey realises that the story she has to tell is something certain people do not want to hear. Cobey is ultimately faced with a hard choice: leave the story alone and seize upon the success she is enjoying, or reveal the truth and risk consequences that may endanger her career ? or her life. From the acclaimed author of MURDER IN AISLE 9, WELCOME TO MINUTE 16 and THE EIGHT LIVES OF STULLIE THE GREAT, Jim Schembri once again scripts a fast-paced and edgy novel, laced with humorous writing.
