The darkness with a smile in it
Something is killing the children of Lac de Thé, a tiny Quebec town. No-one sees it. It leaves no evidence. The only suspect is a character from a centuries-old folk tale, and the only safety appears to depend on following the story’s ancient rule: all children must be indoors at home by seven o’clock.
Now, a mysterious government agent has summoned Adam Godwinson, former priest and book dealer, to help bring an end to the deaths, but the consequences of his last brush with the unthinkable lie heavily on him, and it may be Adam who needs rescuing most of all if anything is going to be done about Bonhomme Sept-Heures.

Science-fiction / Comedy
What happens when boy meets girl but girl doesn’t notice boy because she shares a body with another boy?
When he’s not gorging on desserts, calming his hypochondriacal mum, or getting bone-crunching hugs from his warrior dads, Virj Ofreesin spends his time writing a fantasy novel about Frayda, the elegant half of the two-headed Dwa. Life is adequately mediocre until he learns the Dwa are gravely ill, and a mystical cure grows on a planet between two infamously warring worlds. Ignoring all warnings of danger, Virj embarks on the journey to be Frayda’s real-life hero, armed only with his stylus, and a boingy-haired nuisance who decides to tag along.

Book 4 in the Family by Choice series
It’s been five years. Five years since GenEx. Five years since the world was completely changed. And now Alex feels responsible for integrating extrahumans with the “normals.” He must also take care of the gravely-ill Mister Lupino. When his son, Nicholas, suddenly reappears in his life under tragic circumstances, Alex doesn’t know if he can take it. Maybe that’s why he starts seeing people that aren’t there, and hearing sobs in the night. Maybe it’s all of the stress. Or, maybe, it’s something else.
Young Adult / Science-fiction
Extreme paranoia, withdrawal, and sheer, unadulterated power run through Nathan’s veins. It was all he’d ever known.
Then he meets Annie, an undead ghoul. She sees, in him, the potential to finally succeed in her quest to bring herself back to life. In exchange for his help, she offers to show him that there is so much more to life beyond dumpster diving, living in abandoned buildings, and eating out of discarded cans.
When Nathan accepts the offer, he undergoes an incredibly dangerous journey to bring back the dead, confront his own past, and make his heart vulnerable to Annie, who may have a deeper connection to him than he suspected.
Naya had the perfect life. Co-owner of a fast growing security software company, she ran marathons in her spare time. Suddenly everything changed when she developed multiple sclerosis, and now she can barely climb a flight of stairs. Hiding at home, her computer the only contact with the outside world, she reconnects with her childhood best friend.
But when her friend disappears and the police dismiss her concerns, Naya leaves the safety of her home to find her. She ignores her physical limitations to follow a convoluted trail from high tech suspects to drug dealers, all while becoming an irritant to the police.
It’s been over a year since the events of Brothers In Arms. Alex and his super-powered friends knew that GenEx wasn’t really gone, but they’ve been living peacefully since escaping them, and haven’t given it much thought. Now, not only is GenEx back, but Alex and his friends receive a message from the future telling them that much more may be at stake than their own lives. Are super-powers really enough for someone to save the world?
