Sgt. Windflower Goes Audio

Cover Walker

The Audiobook version of The Walker on the Cape is here!! The first book in the Sgt. Windflower Mysteries is now available in an audiobook version. Narrated by Frank Kearney it is a completely different experience. One you won’t want to miss.

Here’s a link to the audiobook on Audible and a sample

Some early listeners said:

“To hear the book read in a Newfoundland accent is a game changer. As a reader, I create visual images of what I read, as I read; a dream-like visual. Hearing it read this way connects it to place more firmly. For the dream-like visual, it is as if the B&W dream is now presented in colour.”

“I absolutely LOVE this treatment of the work. Easy to follow, clear and easily understood but authentic with its local narrator who clearly did his reading and preparation beforehand to get the phrasing as natural as possible.”

Book 8 in Progress

The first draft of Book 8 in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series is done. Put “The End” on it and sent it off to the story editor. Many changes to come but soon it will be over to the wonderful beta readers. It will be published in the early Fall by Ottawa Press and Publishing.

Another Five Star Review of Darkest Before the Dawn “Like going home”

untitled

“It’s like going home each time I read about Sgt. Winston Windflower, his family, and his fellow officers in Grand Bank, Newfoundland. I enjoy these stories that contain a little mystery and at the same time a cozy feel to the life and times of this good man, Sgt. Winston Windflower.”

New Sgt. Windflower Mystery is Ready for Pre-Order from Chapters/Indigo

Image may contain: cloud, sky and text

Darkest Before the Dawn is Now Available for Pre-Order from Chapters Indigo

https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/darkest-before-the-dawn/9781988437132-item.html?ikwid=DARKEST+BEFORE+THE+dAWN&ikwsec=Home&ikwidx=0

Darkest Before the Dawn is the latest adventure of Sgt. Winston Windflower, a Mountie who finds himself surrounded by a new family and a new life in tiny Grand Bank, Newfoundland. There are signs of trouble that may disturb his pleasant life, including a series of unsolved break-ins and the lack of supports for young people in the most trying time of their lives. But there are always good friends, good food and the sense that if we all pull together, we can find a way to get through even the darkest days.

Ghosts, mysterious deaths, and a new character enliven the pages as Windflower and Tizzard and the other police officers awaken the secrets that have been lying dormant in this sleepy little town. The deeper they dig the more they find as the criminals they seek dive deeper behind the curtains of anonymity and technology. But more than anything, this is a story of love and loss, of growing up and learning how to grow old gracefully. It is also about family and community and looking after each other. Of not giving up hope just before the dawn.
