Owen, you have brought such a special, emotional, upstanding good guy to the world of literature. Sam is just one of the blokes, sure, but he’s golden too. It’s not often we come across his like (salt of the earth), anywhere we go in life. I mean as a reader, or just day-to-day dealings, you know? Just a unique kind of goodness about Sam, to be emulated by readers of all ages. Think of the legacy Owen Clough and his Sam character will leave behind! I’m not overstating anything; I’m sure you have had lots of feedback about your stories and about Sam. GOOD ON YA, mate!

Some of owen's READER REVIEWS


"Well, Owen, I have just finished your book. I still cannot believe a Kiwi author wrote it. I have never enjoyed a book so much. You kept me so enthralled right throughout and I even cried at the end. It was such a compelling story. I can't wait until the second part of the trilogy"

— Judith Woods

"I always felt as if I had a book in me, and it took until I was retired to let it come to life. The story, as I wrote it, had a life of its own and I still enjoy re-reading it."
