‘A brilliant, pacey thriller, with a stunning twist.’ – Robert Foster
I am very pleased to announce the publication of my novel Earthly Powers.
A contemporary thriller set in BC, Earthly Powers tells how a dark secret from the dying days of war-ravaged Nazi Germany re-emerges half-way around the world on a West Coast island and exerts a malevolent influence on its present day occupants.
Thirty-something Terri Stark is living on isolated Arcadia Island while recovering from a failed marriage. But one day trouble comes to paradise. Someone is spying on her, and soon her beloved dog Ned goes missing. After a break-in, a mysterious person appears at her door and makes none too subtle threats. Terri has only one person to turn to: her estranged husband Jack, but his arrival escalates the situation. Soon they are separated again, Jack running for his life from relentless killers, Terri forced into a desperate treasure hunt, survival dependent upon her success. A teenage defector from the enemy camp turns out to have vital information – and a hidden agenda of his own.
An engrossing page-turner, with engaging characters, a buried treasure puzzle, and a heart-pounding man-on-the-run pursuit, Earthly Powers will make you miss your transit stop and keep you up at night!

Coming up next: Meaner Things, a contemporary thriller set in Vancouver. Emma ran out on Mike ten years ago. Now she’s back and needs his help to bring down a very rich, very bad man. Can the two conspirators trust each other long enough to pull off a heist so difficult it makes Ocean’s Eleven look like a walk in the park? Watch this space!
