In the Works: Debut Novel by H&A Christensen

Turnstone Press is pleased to announce the acquisition and development of H&A Christensen’s debut thriller, Stealing John Hancock, scheduled to be released in Fall 2022 under Turnstone’s Ravenstone Imprint.

After a nasty breakup and being scammed into an acting job that doesn’t exist, JP Hancock suddenly finds himself the unwitting victim of an identity theft that has Detective Nya Grey hot on his heels for multi-million-dollar real estate fraud he didn’t commit. With police closing in, JP finds an unlikely ally in The Vindicator, a secretive and brilliant hacker who agrees to help clear his name by whatever means necessary.

Based in Ontario, Alie and Hejsa Christensen write together as H&A Christensen. In-house staff writers for several film production companies, this mother-daughter writing duo have made the leap from silver screen to printed page with their new action thriller, the first of hopefully many.

Established in 1998, Ravenstone, an imprint of Turnstone Press, publishes some of the most exciting mysteries, thrillers, cli-fi, and speculative fiction in Canada.
