Evidence of Uncertain Origin

Nikki Everts


Montreal in 1969. The glory days of Expo 67 are fading and a home-grown separatist movement, the FLQ, is ramping up its terrorist activities. An old veteran dies; an accident, say the police, but his granddaughters Kit and Sondra disagree.  Beginning their own investigations, they stir up danger, intrigue, and for Kit, the possibility of love, as they strive to unravel the mystery of their grandfather’s death.



A Gap in the Fence

by Kate Anderson-Bernier

A GAP IN THE FENCE  is a heart-rending tale of love, loss and atonement.

Set in the early 1960’s, the story begins when 19-year-old Theo stumbles across a family secret.  Determined to find out more, he searches for the woman who is at the heart of it – Clara.

His quest takes him from Vancouver to a small farming community in Alberta where an unfortunate incident with Clara’s husband prevents him from sharing his reasons for coming there. Unwilling to return home without achieving what he had set out to do, Theo accepts work as a farm hand. By the time he is ready to confide in Clara, his relationship with a young woman gets in the way.

It takes a death and a promise to rekindle any hope for forgiveness and to create a future that involves much more than any of them had expected.

A Gap in the Fence is an insightful, bold and bittersweet tale…Theo and Beth will live a long time in the minds of the readers who come to know them.
Joy Lynn Goddard, author of Charlie’s Song and Daredevils

Empire’s Legacy

The Complete Trilogy



In a world reminiscent of northern Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire, this historical fantasy series explores the meaning of loyalty and love in a rapidly changing society. Following the protagonist, Lena, over a period of four years, from the day a soldier rides into her small village with an audacious request – that women learn to fight – to a last, desperate battle to save her land – Empire’s Legacy considers the impact of war and violence on men and women, and the price we pay for freedom.

“Involving, evocative, intelligent – an outstanding historical fantasy.” Maria Luisa Lang

“The consistency of the ever-evolving plotlines and character development has been nothing short of brilliance…Cover to Cover
