About

Set against the divergent landscape of British Columbia -- from the splendours of nature to its immense dangers, from urban grease and grit to dry, desert towns -- Clear Skies, No Wind, 100% Visibility examines human beings and their many frailties with breathtaking insight and accuracy. The author peoples her stories with characters as richly various -- and as compelling -- as her settings. A soon-to-be father and haute cuisine chef mercilessly berates his staff while facing his lack of preparedness for parenthood. A young girl revels in the dark drama of the murder of a girl from her neighbourhood, until she begins to suspect that her troubled brother might be the murderer. A novice air-traffic specialist must come to terms with his first loss -- the death of a pilot -- on his watch. And the dangers of deep canyons and powerful currents spur on the reckless behaviour of teenagers as they test the limits of bravery, friendship, and sex.
