Whale Song, “a haunting tale of change and choice”, is the story of a woman haunted by her past. Described as “a wise, enchanting story” by the Edmonton Examiner, Whale Song is a novel of dual personalities. It is both mystery novel and family drama. It is enchanting adventure and uplifting but tragic moral tale. Whale Song integrates the optimistic spiritualism of native myth and the hard realities of modern-day life. The only witness to a tragedy loses her memory and an innocent may be in prison for the crime. Whale Song asks the difficult question, which is the higher morality—love or law?

Whale Song has captured the interest of film directors and producers in Canada and the US. It is currently being read by multiple Hollywood film companies. Foreign rights interests are also being pursued.
