You may remember last January’s publication of my novel, The Wind Weeps, set on the West Coast. It is the story of Andrea, a pretty young woman who is new to the coast and is quickly swept off her feet by a handsome commercial fisherman.
Before she realizes she has made a mistake, she is out of reach of help, and finds herself in grave danger. I wrote this book to highlight the beauty and the remoteness of the BC coast. Andrea’s predicament adds suspense and drama to this story.
When I finished writing The Wind Weeps, a dark but gripping story, I wanted my next book to have a lighter theme without losing the page-turning tension factor.
In Orion’s Gift, my characters are also looking for love and adventure, but this time the coastal setting is farther south. Sylvia, a California girl, receives a letter that causes her to leave her philandering husband and her fancy home near San Diego. At the same time, Kevin, an Alberta hardware store owner divorces his bullying wife and leaves everything behind to run away to Baja. When Kevin and Sylvia meet and fall in love, two things stand in the way of their happiness. One—the secrets they keep from each other. Two—their vindictive ex-spouses hunting them down. The exotic landscape of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula provides the backdrop for this story of romance and treachery.
My articles have been published in Canadian Stories Magazine and The Canadian Fly Fisher, now called The New Fly Fisher E-zine. I am in the process of publishing my third novel which should come out early next year.
This third novel was actually the first one I wrote. It is the story of a woman’s struggle to survive the hardships of the aftermath of WWII and the strange circumstances that brought her to Canada to the Dawson Creek area. It is being prepared for publication now and should be out in the early spring.
