On clear nights, I go out on the front deck of my float cabin home on Powell Lake and gaze into the heavens. Far away from the lights of our closest city, Powell River, we get some excellent seeing conditions. On really calm nights, the stars become a mirror image on the lake surface at my feet. It’s an awe inspiring experience.
It isn’t hard to imagine extraterrestrial happenings up above, or even down below. Those thoughts, and a love for the my Powell Lake home, gave me the inspiration to write Anomaly at Fortune Lake.
Book Description: On a remote lake in Canada, Ashley and Justin seek an off-the-grid lifestyle. Instead of getting away from it all, two anomalies, one in the sky and one under the lake, draw this adventurous couple into an astounding first contact experience. Justin discovers a distant galaxy exhibiting unusual characteristics through the amateur telescope on their cabin deck. In response, something deep in the lake begins to stir. Soon, military submarine chaser aircraft from two countries and astronomers from around the world become involved. It’s a race to discover the meaning of the anomalies, and Ashley and Justin take an unexpected lead in the hunt for extraterrestrial visitors who could change our world.
For a limited time, the Kindle version of Anomaly at Fortune Lake is available at the sale price of $.99. Regularly it’s $5.99 at Amazon and Kobo. It’s also available in print format from Amazon for $9.95.
They say to write about what you know. So astronomy, my Powell Lake off-the-grid float cabin, quad riding, and a chance encounter with a low-flying military aircraft melded together to become the inspiration to write Anomaly at Fortune Lake.
