  • Wheels of Mizfortunate

    On her way home that night disaster struck. Linda’s car slid on gravel – right into the path of a backhoe with its shovel sticking out sitting on the side of the road.

    The autobiography is her story – from the time she woke up in hospital after four months in a coma, to when she moved down to Florida to improve her health. Her struggle for survival, to live as normal as possible when confined to a wheelchair and with a brain injury, to how she overcomes the odds and goes back to work helping others.

    Linda’s story is a powerful documentary about the will to survive, the power of sheer determination and stubbornness never to give up. Reading her story could change the way you think about life and how you live it.

  • When the Animals Vanished

    The unthinkable has happened.

    All the animals around the world have mysteriously vanished in a single day. From beloved family pets to livestock, fish in the sea to birds in the trees.

    The scientists are baffled. The food industry is in chaos. Stock markets are plunging daily, economies collapsing and mass unemployment rising. The threat of a devastating famine is looming on the horizon and Justine Thyme, leader of the Western Global Government, is fast running out of answers.

    Only maverick businessman, Stanley Smart, believes he has the solution. The trouble is, he knows his stroke of genius challenges the greatest taboo in the humanity rule book. But can Stanley convince the government, and even the church, to accept the unacceptable?
    And what will it take to bring his unpalatable idea to life? To not only get the public to swallow it, but to keep them coming back for more.

    Douglas Faudet’s debut novel serves up a veritable feast of satire, delivered with bone-chilling dry wit, and lashings of black humour. A biting commentary on the world’s dependence on meat that will leave you questioning every pork chop you pop in your mouth.

    When the Animals Vanished presents the reader with moral dilemmas at every turn of the page. It’s a story like no other. Highly controversial, politically incorrect, and not for the squeamish. And whether you love it or hate it, one thing is for certain…

    …you’ll never forget it.
