One of Robert and Joyce’s favourite stories told to us by her daughter when they moved Mom into a Care Home … Mother told us not to buy her any more books. She had all the books she would ever need for the rest of her life … Robert’s three books in the Victoria Chronicles Series.  She must have read them 30 times! When she passed on at 95, she was still reading them. Her 93-year-old sister quickly took them over … leaving this daughter to wait even longer for her turn!

Robert’s first novel was a bestseller and no wonder … his style is often likened to that of Robert Louis Stevenson, Charles Dickens or Oscar Wilde. Readers have referred to our (wife Joyce is his editor, publisher and sometimes co-author) 11 novels as  ‘best novels ever read,’ ‘refreshingly different,’ ‘family friendly,’  ‘read by the whole family’ and “they were going around the cruise ship when we last saw them!’ Yes, so many more readers are now searching for well-written novels either based on true stories, or with real characters and/or familiar locations. You may not know us yet and you won’t find pages of reviews on our books on amazon BUT we are very grateful to the readers who do leave comments on certain popular websites (see next paragraph). Generally, however, our customers write to us personally or visit us at our market stands and craft fairs to give us their comments. For a few years, as time allowed, the authors collected reader’s thoughts in a book and you’ll find some of those comments listed on these pages: reviews and more reviews. Joyce has also been known to post comments from emails on the authors’ Facebook Page

For that reason, we have one important request … after you read one of our books, please write a short review for us. It only takes a few minutes to go to Amazon, Smashwords (need to have purchased there) 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 … Lizzie, Laughing Through Life and the Moonbeam Series are available as digital downloads, see the link on their book pages. 

Our Books: Our 11 novels are set in Canada and the USA’s Pacific Northwest, England, Spain and Portugal … and our latest 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 about to radically 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. A recent TV (YouTube too) interview is above on this page.
