Book Title: Lost At Sea!

Joel Smith has been a tutor with the MSLETB for over a decade. In that time he has taught Computers, Basic English and Communications. He also ran the Ballagh Centre in Rossinver. Now he is the Director of the Men’s Group in Manorhamilton but manages to write in any spare time he can find. This can be difficult with a full time job and a busy home life. “I am currently writing another book but I have to spend time with my wife and children too after work so I often write late in the evening.”

This book is dealing with an issue that features strongly in the media at the moment as it deals with the navy rescuing refugees at sea. There is a great twist to the story which makes the reader think. Also the students and tutors who have read the novel were delighted that it was short and easy to read as it was a useful resource for book reviews in the classroom.
