Perfect for kids 8 to 80, Jaspa’s Journey is a collection of travel-based adventure novels starring yours truly! Basically, if you’ve got a bit of a child in your heart, and are fascinated by this wonderful world we live in, Jaspa’s Journey is for you!
The first book in the series, The Great Migration, is set on Africa’s Serengeti Plains. It was was originally published in Canada by DreamCatcher and was an award-winning finalist in USA Book News’ Best Books 2009. Unfortunately, DreamCatcher closed when its owner sadly died.
Thankfully, I’m thrilled to announce that The Great Migration is once again available in both paperback and ebook formats, through American publisher Speaking Volumes. Even better, the first two sequels, The Pride of London and Jaspa’s Waterloo, are set to follow later in the year.
You can get your paperback or ebook copy of The Great Migration from Amazon (search Jaspa’s Journey in your regional version) or direct from the publisher, Speaking Volumes.
The ebook is also downloadable from iTunes (again, search Jaspa’s Journey in your regional version).
In the States, you can get both paperback and ebook versions through Barnes & Noble. Hopefully, they will also soon be available in Canada from Chapters-Indigo and the U.K. via Waterstones.

Jaspa’s Journey: The Great Migration
Follow the thrilling adventures of Jaspa as he joins the epic exodus of the Great Migration on Africa’s Serengeti Plain. Every year over two million animals are forced to embark on this desperate, real-life, danger-fraught, 500 mile struggle for survival. This year Jaspa must join them in order to fulfil a rite-of-passage known as the Journey, a task made doubly daunting by the fact that Jaspa is a Giraffeses, a distant relative of the giraffe, who could comfortably sit in the palm of your hand. Jaspa’s Journey: The Great Migration is a story of adventure and danger, friendship and secrets, excitement and emotion, humour and, above all, discovery.
Jaspa’s Journey 2: The Pride of London
Jaspa and his friends are at it again! This time they embark on a whirlwind tour of London, attempting to solve the riddles of ‘The Path’ in order to help their new friend Ernest, a Ratses, become a member of the clandestine Ses society known simply as ‘The Pride’.
Jaspa’s Journey 3: Jaspa’s Waterloo
At Waterloo in 1815, the Duke of Wellington defeated Napoleon once and for all. Now, on that same battlefield, Jaspa and his friends must face their own foes. They must hunt the entire battlefield for something called a geocache, to save Ben from a foolish bet he was tricked into making by the bully Gobber. And all the while, defending themselves from the inexplicable yet furious attacks of a mystery Ses. Will they be able to fend off the stranger’s assaults and find the cache in time? Or will Waterloo again be a place of defeat, as it was for Napoleon 200 years ago?
Jaspa’s Journey 4: The Hermit of Kennecott
(Being written as we speak!)
When the McRaes set off on an Alaskan cruise, Jaspa and the gang tag along. But when Portia comes down with a mysterious illness, this trip of a lifetime rapidly becomes a life and death race to find a cure. Their quest leads them ever deeper into the wilderness, to ghost town abandoned almost a hundred years ago, and the one person who can save her… An elusive Ses known simply as the Hermit.
