Pregnant, abandoned by her lover, and cut off from her family, free-spirited and independent Gracie is determined to keep her baby and to raise him on her own.

Protecting Elijah Blue from the Charlottetown nuns eager to adopt him out to a “better” home is only Gracie’s first battle…

It takes a whole community of colourful neighbours and friends — and the dream-wisdom of spirits that protect her — for Gracie to navigate the cruel and impoverishing systems that judge and harass her as a single mom on PEI.

Holiday

A new collection of holiday stories and poems from different traditions and experiences of many Islanders

For millennia, humans have devoted special days to celebration, atonement, thanksgiving, and commemoration. We call such occasions “holidays.” They may be religious or secular, or, like Christmas, a mingling of the earthly and the divine. Winter in the northern hemisphere – with icy winds and frozen earth, long nights and humans huddled closer together – inspires an especially keen need for ritual days of revelry and reflection.

Herrings are falling from the sky over The Shores – an unusual phenomenon anywhere, but especially so in this case. A newcomer, Anton Paradis, has set up a restaurant that specializes in dangerous dining, cooking up food that can kill to tantalize the palates of wealthy clients. It’s a recipe for death. Someone’s bound to get hurt.

Someone does. Oddly, the victim dies laughing. By accident or design?

Mountie Jane Jamieson’s suspects it’s no accident. But could there really be another murder at The Shores?

Fiction 2013

Lorne Elliott’s new novel, Beach Reading, takes us back to the early 1970s on the North Shore of Prince Edward Island, where a hilarious and colourful cast of Lorne Elliott characters are engaged in uproarious political, financial, musical, amorous, and ecological shenanigans. Our young hero, Christian, is an eloquently wry and precocious university drop-out, who has never savoured the wonders of women or alcohol. A budding naturalist raised in central Canada, he arrives on PEI for a summer job in the newly-established Barrisway National Park, and sets up camp on the beach.

new island writers Prince Edward Island

A call was sent out asking writers to submit unpublished short stories for a fiction anthology featuring newer writers with a significant P.E.I. connection. There were no boundaries for setting or genre, only a limit of 5,000 words. PEI is strong on tradition, which includes out-migration and immigration. Thus, its culture and demographics are changing, and these PEI writers both are Island-born and hail from away - Australia and Calgary, Newfoundland and Ukraine.

The Shores’ sleuth is back!

It’s Christmas at The Shores. There’s no snow yet, but there are so many outdoor lights that the tiny coastal village can be seen from space. Apart from Ian Simmons’ place, and he was considered odd, there was only one house in the village that wasn’t lit up. It had been dark for years. That was about to change. Wild Rose Cottage was about to come to life, and death, once again. Meanwhile, the villagers wished for snow to complete the Christmas portrait. When it came, they would regret it.
