Flames crackle and stability just went up in smoke.

When Elizabeth’s happy new life goes up in flames and mortal danger is knocking down her door once again, she struggles to stay sane. Only when she falls into the trap her aunt’s killer has set for her does she realize the danger she’s in. Can she calm the turmoil within and rally the strength of her tribe to fight back, or is it too late?

BEYOND THE TREE HOUSE is book #2 in the psychological thrillers’ series set in current-day New Zealand. It concludes Elizabeth’s story as she, a forty-two-year-old woman with multiple personalities (Dissociative Identity Disorder, DID), fights for survival. Four core personalities tell the story from the inside out, giving an insight into the workings of the dissociated mind.


Gudrun Frerichs

I spent my childhood on a small, dreamy fishing island close to Hamburg, Germany. From there I spent years in Switzerland and The Netherlands. For the last thirty years, I’ve called New Zealand my home.

Once my three children were grown, I studied psychotherapy and worked for 25 years as a trauma specialist and started writing. Over the years I’ve learned that life is a bumpy ride full of highs and lows. It’s having friends and loved ones to celebrate with that makes the highs special, and knowing one isn’t the only one who struggles makes the lows tolerable.
