    to survive in the harshest.”

  • Unmarked

    Cash has been abolished in a strategic move to force the population to be ‘marked’ with identifying barcodes.

    Elisha Dullard is warned of the coming cataclysm in the Book of Revelation, but doesn’t believe it until she discovers her friend’s dead body.

    Elisha may find true love, but she also learns the terrifying capacity for human persecution.

    Technology rules in this cashless society, where citizens are marked with identifying barcodes that track every transaction they make.

    But one young woman, Elisha, uneasy about the unquestioning dependence on technology and its dominance over people’s lives, refuses to be marked. Like others who resist, she pays dearly for failing to conform to society and finds herself cut off from her friends and family.
    Elisha fights even harder to remain unmarked when someone warns her that the human barcodes are a sign of the End of Times. The question is, can one person’s rebellion prevent the end of the world?

    Author Kate Hansen’s part dystopian, part-fantasy tale is a mirror of our own high-tech-dependent world, and a timely reminder that technology should be handled thoughtfully.

  • 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.
