“FALLING UNDER is one of the most compelling debut novels I’ve read in a long time. It is gutsy, emotional, sexually charged and, because of its second-person narrative style, unremittingly intense. Younge-Ullman writes her guts out, hurtling forward, pedal to the floor. The result is a gripping story, crackling with energy.” – The National Post

Gutsy and provocative, FALLING UNDER is the story of a reclusive young artist struggling to connect in a world she doesn’t entirely trust.

Mara Foster is a mess. A rollercoaster of a childhood made a survivor of her, but as an adult she is a mass of contradictions and unrealized potential. Talented, fierce and smart, but burdened by a host of anxieties, Mara finds it difficult to leave the house most days, much less imagine anything resembling normalcy. Then Mara meets Hugo, and the walls she has built around herself begin to crumble. As she fights for a breakthrough both in her art and in life, she must come to terms with her complicated past, in order to gain a second chance at happiness.

Written in spare, crisp prose and marked by wry humor, FALLING UNDER is a gripping contemporary tale of human frailty, friendship, and hard-earned redemption.

“Isn’t it comforting to pick up a book by a favourite author and have confidence that you are going to enjoy their book? Faith is one such author. My confidence is always justified. This is a story of romance, bravery, determination, survival, heartbreak and joy, all poignantly and convincingly conveyed. All perfectly blended, well balanced and served up with Faith’s usual clarity. There is a clue in the title–Book 1 indicates there’s a Book 2–and there’s a gentle little teaser to tempt you on.” – Beeshon

‘The Seeds of Time’ is a complete re-working of the novel originally published in paperback as “The Crossing”, with additional story lines and chapters, now issued exclusively as an eBook.

This intensely romantic yet realistic novel spans two generations and the unimaginable gulf between the Second World War and the present. When Englishman Richard Barker suffers a devastating loss he learns to come to terms with his grief. He is helped by two beautiful women, newly discovered quiet and smouldering American, Sorrel and the tempestuous and wilful, Miranda an old flame from long ago. While Richard is battling with his feelings, by chance he enters into the dark, often surreal world of his dead father’s past life spent during the Second World War. It is Sorrel’s Grandfather, an American Air Force pilot, who contacts Richard with some intriguing news which helps Richard to his senses.

Richard lives in a world that is sometimes as tragic as A Farewell to Arms and as sensuous as The English Patient. His story and that of his father are crafted from the ruins of war and the indestructibility of love. The action is non-stop, the locations are intriguing and the characters are appealing. There is tension, romance and harrowing escapes all woven within a story that captures the imagination and keeps the reader guessing until the very end. Will Richard find inner peace and love?

“Sector C reaches out and grabs you and doesn’t let go. Though set in the near-future, it’s permeated by the feeling that these things could happen, may well happen if we aren’t careful. The western setting is beautifully realized; I felt the stoic pain of the ranchers and their gut-deep outrage as their way of life was threatened. I’d love to see more by Phoenix Sullivan in this genre.” – Patricia M.

***Amazon Top 100 in April 2012 / #2 Medical Thriller on Amazon throughout most of January 2012***

A rise in stroke-like cases has CDC analyst Mike Shafer on alert. Patients in every demographic in the Great Plains area, from toddlers to healthy adults to the elderly, are succumbing to rapid deterioration – and death. Veterinarian Donna Bailey, meanwhile, is dealing with an outbreak of her own. It looks like mad cow disease. But to be affecting so many species? Impossible. Whatever it is, it’s spreading. Fast.

As state and federal agencies race to contain the growing threats, Mike and Donna’s searches for Patient Zero intersect at a big-game compound in a remote corner of North Dakota. There they find their answer buried in a secret thought extinct for 10,000 years. A secret entrepreneur Walt Thurman will kill to protect. But even if Mike and Donna can escape the compound with the secret of Sector C, it may already be too late. Because after today, extinct no longer means forever.

Ripped from today’s research and tomorrow’s headlines, SECTOR C is a near-future medical thriller fans of Michael Crichton and Robin Cook are sure to enjoy.
