  Have you ever wondered what happened to those squeaky clean, old-fashioned novels?  
You’ve found them!!

I loved their books so much I’ve bought copies for others. These books have a quality that is rare to find – they make you feel as if you are part of the story. There is a reason for the awards these books have earned.  Tim D., Victoria, BC

Robert’s first novel was a bestseller and no wonder … his style has been likened to that of Robert Louis Stevenson, Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde. Readers have referred to our 10 novels (Silent Destiny is #11)  ‘best novels ever read,’ ‘refreshingly different,’ ‘family friendly’ and ‘read by the whole family. Yes, many readers are still searching for well-written novels about real characters … people they can relate to! Unfortunately, our books don’t have a great deal of online reviews as over the past 17 years our customers write to us personally or visit us at the market to give us their comments verbally. For a few years, as time allowed, the authors collected comments in a book and you’ll find some of those comments listed on these pages: reviews and more reviews.

For that reason, we have one important request … after you read one of our books, please write a review for us. It only takes a few minutes to go to Amazon, Smashwords or Goodreads … for if you enjoyed our book(s), we know you will want to tell others of your discovery! Thanks in advance.  

Audio Books – they’re back!! By popular demand … Lizzie, Laughing Through Life and the Moonbeam Series are available as digital downloads, see the link on their book page. 

Our Books: Our 11 novels are set in Canada and the USA’s Pacific Northwest, England, Spain and Portugal … and our new novel, Silent Destiny, is set mainly in 2006 Scotland with a tantalizing mystery set during William ‘Braveheart’ Wallace’s life in 14th century Scotland. The main character, Professor Emma Walters from Victoria, BC, has never heard of Wallace but she will soon find out that she is related to him … a fact that is set to change her life!

*Whittlesque: a phrase Joyce coined for her husband’s brand of unusual and witty 
page-turning mix of family friendly romance and historically correct novels. 
Robert and Joyce would like to thank the many Canadian, US and other media services in print, TV, and on the internet, who have continued to feature news items about us and our popular books over the past 17 years. You have been instrumental in spreading the word about our books and we are extremely grateful. Our latest interview (YouTube 2014) is above on this page.
