Name Change

snowflurry600

 

I have decided to change the name of my latest novel to Flurry of Snow. This is a contemporary novel in the tradition of Like Twigs in a Storm and Broken Silence, being set in New Zealand, my homeland.

At the moment it is half written and should be out by the end of the year.

From Another World!

The search of a millennium is over. Computers aboard Intergalactic Starship Omega find a planet with water and oxygen in usable quantities to sustain humanoid life. It is over populated, polluted and has one social problem; forty eight percent of the human population are males, well beyond the one in a thousand necessary on Planet Delta to maintain the sperm banks.

However, the humanoids aboard cannot be kept alive for the estimated two hundred years required to find another solar system so the journey must end. Minor alterations are needed in the humanoids’ metabolism. The women need to understand English for a landing in Australia, the most unpolluted continent the computers can find. Sensations and emotions are changed back to natural; after all, a bearer needs emotions more than the neuter that these females were on the home planet.

It is time to arouse Pazz and prepare her for life on Earth while cloned younger sister Kylina, now 22 not 12 as remembered by Pazz, can be kept in reserve. There is also Lunol, from a primitive preindustrial planet and Kylina’s partner but he is male and doesn’t count.

Alone, with only an armlet computer for company, Pazz lands in the West Australian desert. She catches the Indian Pacific Express for Sydney, three days journey away but catches the flu virus. With no immunity she becomes seriously ill and is taken off the train at Adelaide. Doctor Duncan Bourne a linguist from The University Of Adelaide is contacted when nobody can understand her delirious speech. Duncan finds her speaking an ancient dead Greek language that he can understand. After she recovers, they become friends. Pazz adapts to life on Earth and, by having her qualifications entered into Earth computers, becomes Doctor Pazz D’rose, a mathematician and biochemist.

How does this affect Pazz, Kylina and her partner? Is Lunol rescued and how do the military on Earth react to having the alien humans in their midst?

High Adventure

twigs600

While converting a closed country school into a summer batch near Wellington, New Zealand, Steve Garnet meets neighbour, Lavina Ryland. Their friendship soon develops into a romance that hurtles them into danger and changes their lives and the life of Lavina’s daughter, Cathy forever.

Grant Ryland learns about his wife’s infidelity and, in a drunken rage, drugs Lavina, Cathy and Steve. He abducts them and abandons the trio on an isolated mountaintop airstrip above bush-covered ranges, at least four day’s walking distance from the nearest road.

Facing an onslaught of life-threatening perils, including frostbite, raging icy rapids, and violent storms, the trio struggle to survive like twigs in a storm. Can they overcome the grave odds against them?

Join this brave trio as their strength and love is repeatedly tested and they learn what it really means to be a family.

Eagle’s Claw Lake

Eagleclaw600

Doctor Reid Tucker’s intention to spend the summer at a remote cabin at Eagle’s Claw Lake in northeast Washington State with only his dog, Cinders, never eventuates.

On the trip there, pilot Kate Meltz calls in with the amphibian to a commune at the other end of the lake. While there, Reid pulls a desperate teenage girl, Lorie Somerville, from the water. This begins a frightening time as fanatical commune leader, Peter Littlejohn, tries to find Lorie and prevent her from leaving.

Though Littlejohn doesn’t find her on the aircraft, he sabotages it so the trio are left stranded at Reid’s cabin.

It becomes obvious that the place is more than just a remote religious commune. The girl is terrified of being caught and begs Reid to look for Jennifer and Sassy, two of her friends who have also escaped. Though pursued by Littlejohn, Lorie leads Reid and Kate to a cave where the girls are waiting.

But why has Erika Somerville, Lorie’s elder sister, returned to Eagle’s Claw Lake and is found savagely beaten in the commune’s cabin cruiser?
