CFBI agent Jasmine McLellan leads a psychically gifted team in the hunt for a serial arsonist―a murderer who has already taken the lives of three people.
Jasi and her team members―Psychometric Empath and profiler Ben Roberts and Victim Empath Natassia Prushenko―are joined by Brandon Walsh, the handsome but skeptical Chief of Arson Investigations. In a manhunt that takes them from Vancouver to Kelowna, Penticton and Victoria, they are led down a twisting path of sinister secrets.
Sifting through ashes and clues, Jasi realizes that there is more to the third victim than meets the eye. Perhaps not all of the victims were that innocent. The hunt intensifies when she learns that someone they know is next on the arsonist’s list.
Unleashing her gift as a Pyro-Psychic, Jasi is compelled toward smoldering ashes and enters the killer’s mind―a mind bent on destruction and revenge. And in the heat of early summer, Jasi discovers that a murderer lies in wait…much closer than she ever imagined.
Book 1 in the Divine series; same story text as 2004 edition

Time is not on Vince Indigo’s side, but it should have been, since he practically invented it. Life had once been easy as one of the world’s richest men, living on the luxurious island colony of Atopia, but lately the universe had found a rather nasty way to frustrate Vince’s expectations. Something in his future had begun relentlessly hunting him down, and to live another day, Vince must figure out the ghost-in-the-machine that is trying to kill him, and why it is that his own creation has trapped him in a deadly spiral of death. His time is running out.
All of the Atopia stories are ‘sidequels’ that begin at the same moment, running side by side in time, so that you can start by reading any of them and then read the others in any order you choose to slowly reveal the mystery and terrifying danger that connects them all. Atopia is a near future world without borders that balances on the brink of post-humanism and eco-Armageddon.

Centered around the arrival in Belfast in 1968 of Benny Brannigan, fresh up from the provinces, ‘Buying Time’ is the insidiously evocative account of the loves and lives of a group of people whose fates are closely intertwined with his, from Benny’s own relationship with the love of his life, Deirdre, to the tragedy which awaits the golden couple Carol and Charlie, to the bitter-sweet story of the big-hearted Sammy and his devotion to the married Liz whom he met while out dancing one night and could never forget.
Among a pack of sympathetic and intriguing characters, the streets of Belfast play the greatest role of all as the sometimes joyous, sometimes teeming, sometimes troubled backdrop to the dreams and heartbreaks of ordinary, yet often quietly heroic, lives.
‘Buying Time’ has a rhythm, a wisdom and a telling accuracy which will haunt you for weeks, and maybe for years, to come.

NOT another story about Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, Sam Houston and the boys.
Decades before Crockett, Bowie or Houston even set foot in Texas, Frederick Stockman was already there. Author Jinx Schwartz, a ninth-generation Texan, has delved deep into her ancestral roots to create this moving story of the Frederick Stockman familys’ courageous determination to make Texas their home during the turbulent period between 1806 and 1836.
The Texicans was inspired by a Texas history book calling her ancestral clan a “congenial society for evil”–rogues “skilled in many forms of villainy” for their role in the tumultuous years of first Spanish, the Mexican rule.
Frederick Stockman and his family immigrate to Spanish Texas in 1806 to ranch, but soon find themselves inexorably drawn into the bitter conflict between Mexico and Spain. They join forces with a dashing young Spanish deserter, Miguel Gonzales, in his successful campaign to liberate Mexico and Texas from Spanish rule. Their ties are further cemented when Gonzales marries into the family.
As Heroes of Mexico, the Texicans–staunch supporters of Mexican rule for Texas–find themselves vilified by North American settlers illegally flocking across the unprotected border. These newcomers, calling themselves Texians, view Mexico, Mexicans and Texicans as the enemy. Targets of bigotry, the Texicans themselves are torn along cultural lines as their hero-turned-despot, General Santa Anna, propels them towards a deadly showdown.

It’s April 2033. Drought and water wars ravage Africa, and heat-waves kill tens of thousands in Europe. Famine sweeps across Asia after the monsoon fails, and the United States struggles with massive social upheaval following decades of economic malaise.
Ayden Walker is a young field researcher. It’s his job to limit the damage to the environment from climate change, greed or plain incompetence. He’s also part of the virtual BioWatch community where he works to hold those responsible to account. As such, he has little patience for people who rush to commercialise genetically modified organisms before the risks are properly understood.
So he is appalled when he meets William Hanford and learns that, decades ago, their parents were involved in illegal genetic experimentation.
But what he learns next shakes the very foundations of his existence.
He isn’t given time to deal with it though. Ayden stumbles across something that could change the course of humanity if he doesn’t stop it… but he’s not so sure he should. People are consuming without thought, placing unbearable loads on the planet’s resources and playing havoc with the world’s climate. Perhaps truly radical action could be justified.
