In this gripping novel, Kelly Watt brings to life the wonderfully complex Sheryl-Anne, and with vivid, often frightening detail charts the destruction of a family. The work of a gifted storyteller, Mad Dog marks the arrival of an exceptional new talent.
Sheryl-Anne MacRae dreams of leaving her home on an apple orchard in southwestern Ontario to search for her long-lost mother. One day her adopted father, Fergus, brings home a beautiful young hitchhiker, Peter Lucas Angelo and Sheryl-Anne and Peter become fast friends.
But life in Eden Valley is not as idyllic as it would seem. As the summer progresses Peter is pulled deeper into the dangerous underworld Fergus inhabits -- a world of sex, drugs, and increasingly violent rituals. Sheryl-Anne’s daytime existence becomes more and more threatened by the frightening visions that torment her at night. In a terrifying climax, the brutal truth of Sheryl-Anne’s life is revealed.

Praise for Mad Dog
"With her first novel, Watt has created a story of substance, layering the everyday concerns of an apple harvest over those of race riots and missing civil-rights activists, the apocalypse and pagan ritual over the longing of first love, cruelty endured over cruelty meted out. To be sure, there is ugliness in Mad Dog. But there is also solid writing, from a writer whose second book I, for one, will be sure to seek out."

Camino Meditations is a pocket book for spiritual adventurers. This small practical book includes short inspirational chapters, followed by simple walking meditations, journal exercises and action steps. The writing is peppered with Camino wisdoms Watt learned on her own pilgrimage walking with fellow meditation practitioners in 2008. Camino Meditations is small enough to slip into a knapsack or download on a mobile device, and is written for the spiritual seeker, regardless of religious persuasion, who wants an inner guide on their quest to “know thyself.”
Praise for Camino Meditations
These “meditations” are always engaging, easy to read, articulate – but above all, REALLY worth reading! I find every one of them thought-provoking, interesting, and true. I’d want to read this even if I never set foot on the Camino!
