BOOK EXCERPT:

Alexandre McKenzie lives in a town on the North Shore of the St. Lawrence River. Summer finds him riding through the bush on his quad or fishing in an inland lake. In winter he is a promising midget hockey star who often takes refuge at his camp in the woods. But one fall, his stature and talent take a turn for the worse as he plunges into a relationship with a girl whose future appears plagued by tragedy. Alex has to fight his own demons. Like the moose that haunts him from the moment he meets Jessica—and that sheds its antlers with the first snow only to grow bigger ones the next season—Alex has to learn to hold his head high and become a frontrunner once again. Break Away deals with friendship, family, and love and could take place anywhere in Canada where there is winter, hockey, and young people.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Sixteen-year-old Nick Macklin's life has been divided in two. Before and After. Before his father went to jail, and After. Before, he was a talented hockey player, an A student, in love with his girlfriend, Sherry, and had the greatest dad in the world, a man who not only was there for him after his mom died of cancer, but who was also a star player for the Vancouver Canucks. Then the bottom fell out. His father was convicted of murder and given a life sentence for a crime Nick is convinced he didn't commit. Now living with his dad's agent, the only thing that keeps Nick going is a burning desire to seek justice for his father. Who framed him? And why? Drifting away from everything and everyone who matters, Nick spends his days roaming the city, looking for the bald man with a limp who is the key to answering these questions: the man his father swears planted the evidence that led to his conviction. Finding him is like looking for a needle in a haystack—until Nick stumbles on a very real clue, an eye-opening revelation that just might get his father out of jail forever.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The March 2000 presidential elections in Taiwan returned a pro-independence candidate. This marks a turning point in Taiwanese politics, as well as bilateral relations across the strait. The Taiwan issue is extremely difficult to resolve for it straddles three centuries. Separatism originated in the 19th century, intensified in the 20th century and is likely to explode in the 21st century.Being one of the few journalists who possess in-depth knowledge of both sides of the Taiwan Straits, the author is able to give a factual account and offer explanations for the developments that led eventually to the change of the political landscape of the island.This book is a collection of selected news reports, analyses and commentaries which were written by the author between 1998 and 2000 during his posting to Taiwan. The first part traces the development of cross-strait relations since the presidential elections. The second part gives a factual account of the election process at different points in time, as well as the author's interpretation of the result. The next part covers news and analyses of cross-strait relations, especially the unification-independence dispute and the deterioration of cross-strait relations after Taiwanese ex-president Lee Tenghui formulates his 'two-states' policy. The final part sets cross-strait relations in the broader perspective of the trilateral relationship between Beijing, Taipei and Washington, the latter a key player in this uneasy co-existence.This book would be a good reference for anyone interested in the history and current political developments in Taiwan.
