HOUR HOUSE
Kyle and his friends Mindy, Amber, Neil and Grody simply can’t resist a mystery.

Now the only way out is by completing a series of challenges which no one before them has ever passed. It takes teamwork and using every talent they possess to face tests of mind, athletics, heart and courage. But even if they succeed, will they be allowed to leave? Or will they be bound to Hour House forever? Hour House is available in perfect-bound paperback at a reduced price from this website by e-mail or at Cowichan Valley Arts Council.

WHEN THE NEED IS GREAT
Jan Brody and her husband Tom’s semi- retirement becomes anything but relaxing, when one daily chat with the telepathic Shalaian youth Ablakan is pierced by a psychic scream. With distant astronaut Moohri now marooned on a desolate planetoid, it becomes a race against time to save him from starvation and to eventually find a way to rescue him. Their own lives are soon at risk, as they inform powerful people on their respective planets of the offworld communication which has been going on under the noses of officialdom.

Before Ablakan and his colleagues on Earth and the other allied worlds could locate their enemy, the tyrant had consolidated these punctures in space into a single ‘hell hole’ massive enough to tear Shalaii apart.
