Have you ever wondered what happened to old-fashioned novels? Please don’t leave this page! You’ve found them!

Robert’s writing has been likened to a combination of Robert Louis Stevenson, Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde. Readers call our 10 novels (Silent Destiny is #11)  ‘best novels ever read,’ ‘refreshingly different,’ ‘family friendly’ and ‘read by the whole family’ … yes, lots of people are still looking for well-written books about real human beings! Read our customer reviews and more reviews.

We also write children’s books (two books in the “Moonbeam Series”) which Joyce narrated onto audio.

Our Lizzie audio books on CD and Laughing Through Life CD are now Sold Out and, at the present time, we have no plan to reprint … but we’re working on something even better!!

Our novels are set in Canada and the USA’s Pacific Northwest, England, Scotland, Spain, Portugal and our new novel begins in Victoria and is set mainly in modern Scotland with a main character from Victoria, BC. We pride ourselves in providing you with real history and, if possible, real people, too which tends to make our books somewhat more complicated to write.

Robert and Joyce’s Shaw TV Interview, Sept 2014


If you’ve visited Victoria BC in the summer, you may have already met Robert and Joyce selling autographed books at the Bastion Square Public Market (Robert – Spring/Summer) or the Sidney Thursday Night Street Market (Joyce – July and August). Please check the Events Page first if you’re looking for us.


*Whittlesque: a phrase Joyce coined for her husband’s brand of unusual and humourous, page-turning mix of family friendly romance and historically correct novels.


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