Emma Kennedy's hilarious memoir of wet and windy family trips, NOW ADAPTED FOR THE MAJOR BBC ONE SERIES THE KENNEDYS. For the 70s child, summer holidays didn't mean the joy of CentreParcs or the sophistication of a Tuscan villa. They meant being crammed into a car with Grandma and heading to the coast. With just a tent for a home and a bucket for the necessities, we would set off on new adventures each year stoically resolving to enjoy ourselves. For Emma Kennedy, and her mum and dad, disaster always came along for the ride no matter where they went. Whether it was being swept away by a force ten gale on the Welsh coast or suffering copious amounts of food poisoning on a brave trip to the south of France, family holidays always left them battered and bruised. But they never gave up. Emma's memoir, The Tent, The Bucket and Me, is a painfully funny reminder of just what it was like to spend your summer holidays cold, damp but with sand between your toes.

It's 1989, and Emma and her best friend Dee head to the USA to make their fortune. But completely inept and virtually unemployable, they discover that they can't even get a job in McDonald's. Forced to travel from California to New York with only pennies in their pockets, they bounce from scrape to scrape, surviving on their wits and the kindness of strangers. Bad luck and misfortune throw everything their way - snakes, earthquakes, black magic and incontinent dogs. They even get kidnapped by a sex-crazed midget in a Ferrari. This never happened to Jack Kerouac. A startlingly honest and ridiculously funny book, I Left My Tent in San Francisco tells the miraculous story of how the hapless pair made it back alive to tell the disastrous tale.

Small-town Manitoba may not be where big dreams typically start, but for Winkler resident Victor Enns, that’s where the adventure began. Invited by his son and daughter-in-law, Mike and Linda Enns, to take a “bucket list” motorcycle ride across Western Canada, this octogenarian didn’t let his age stop him. Other challenges almost did though, and the reader will enjoy a rollicking account of the ups and downs of this exhilarating venture. In her comfortable and compelling style, Linda Enns invites you along on the journey. You will encounter a range of challenges including mechanical troubles with the bikes, curious encounters with troubled strangers, and the worry of the younger generation regarding the hardiness of their older travelling companion. You will also enjoy great beauty, the heritage of multi-generational love, delightful humour, and charming anecdotes. While an entertaining Western Canada travelogue for tourists and motorcycle enthusiasts, this book goes far beyond that. It is an uplifting, moving account that will inspire readers who: are facing life after the loss of a loved one; have big dreams but the fears to match; need a new perspective on age-related challenges; want motivation to live a more positive life; or could reach out with kindness to make someone’s “bucket list” a reality. Bucket List Ride will engage all your senses as you enjoy the sights (mountains), sounds (650 Yamaha), tastes (ice-cream), smells (forest fires) and touch (group hugs) of this road-touring adventure. Enjoy the ride!

The Qaakil

Young Powerful Love + Tragic Terror = Spine-tingling Excitement! Colt and Molly, intensely in love, face devastating horror with grace and humor while fighting to contain a truly horrendous invasive species. The Qaakil is a very timely novel-sized work that mixes humor and romance with the stark terror of a believable monster story. This novel is timely because of the headlines that have been reporting the discovery of Killer fish imported from China in a Maryland pond and now in the Potomac River along with big-headed carp that have decimated fisheries in the Mississippi River system and now threaten the Great Lakes. Great care has also been taken to keep the story line technically correct and logical. This is NOT a giant alligator in my basement type of story! Ecocidae Gigas Dentire or Giant Toothed Pike were thought to be extinct although Inuit people have tried for years to tell the Kabloona (White Man) about what they call The Qaakil; sixteen-foot monsters found in some remote lakes of the far north. Those stories were dismissed as folklore. However, they do exist as John Stanton of Stanton Electronics found out in the last few seconds of his life while on an expedition to the far north. The Stanton family takes a brave and principled stance when they realize they are responsible for importing these monsters and allowing them to escape into a New York State river. Colt and Molly will experience horrifying situations including attempted murder as they work to confine these monsters while at the same time discovering the joys of new-found love.
