Genre: YA Sci-fi
Release Date: October 2018
After a mysterious impact in the dry Oklahoma landscape, three teenagers discover a world where they can do anything they want.
Anything at all.
Play. Explore. Fly. Destroy.
But as a ripple of consequences impact reality, Sonny, Isla and Dan realise this is far from a game. Do they now have the power to change the real world? Because if they do, they know exactly what they want to do first.
Dirt-poor Sonny Monroe blames the oil company that fracked his family ranch for his problems. Dan Hawk, a Native American from the Chickatawa tribe, has never forgotten who stole his native Homelands. Idealistic Isla Duncan, a Scottish Paralympian junior on a charity handcycle tour, would just like to make the world a better place.
As the three teens attract global enemies and the killings begin, grave doubts divide them.
Do they control this new-found power? Or is it controlling them?
If so, what on Earth does The Sandbox want?

“A memorable new work of YA science fiction. The focal characters of this novel make for a brilliant trio of protagonists wrestling with powers they had previously thought were impossible. The true beauty of the writing comes in the development of these central characters. This is a patient, timely, creative and thoughtful book that discusses key social and environmental issues within the framework of a thrilling adventure. Fascinating and thought-provoking, the book and the magical realm of The Sandbox are well worth exploring.” Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★
“In The Sandbox, the stakes are high as alien technology and three, over-excited teenagers take the lead in this fun adventure story. Fantasy meets science fiction to create an action-packed plot that will keep readers guessing all the way through. With whimsical imagery, Patrick’s imaginative novel is entertaining, stimulating, and captivating.” Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. www.bookreviewdirectory.com
