Niagara Author - John HartigMy eBooks and Paperbacks are now sold on Kindle, as well as Amazon. My name is John Hartig. I am an author within the Niagara Region. I am also a photographer of Niagara Scenery, and a web designer. Yes, I am retired, but my three passions keep me busy. I am blessed and still sharp enough to be able to do writing, web design and photography as a septuagenarian. Since I am an insomniac, I do my scenery photography during the daytime, and my writing at midnight. Hey, who needs sleep?

Several years ago I went to night school at Mohawk College to learn how to do web design from scratch, which means scripting, mostly HTML. I don't use templates. My sites are cell-phone friendly. I host the sites myself through my godaddy account.

You can Google Niagara Scenery, John Hartig Photos, Niagara Author - John Hartig, Vineland Web Design, or Niagara Author. I'm not crazy about Facebook. I prefer a direct how-do-you-do from people who are interested in my novels and my scenery pictures..

Niagara Author - John HartigLove and Faith Trilogy: Book One asks the question: "What Honor is there in an Honor Killing?" The novel starts with Ahmad, the brother, killing his own sister, Khalisa, in the woods at Ball's Falls. Father, mother and the brother all agree that Khalisa must die because she is willfully dating a white "infidel", Christopher Unger. This, in their minds, is a relationship which is not on the true path of Allah. Ahmad gets away with the murder for nearly 2 years. The younger daughter, Fahm, doesn't know that her own brother had killed her older sister. But a silver necklace, found at the scene of the murder, leads to Ahmad, as the killer. When the police close in, the parents give Ahmad money to escape and join ISIS. They go on trial and are imprisoned. Detective Ed Spencer and Fahm fall in love after the trial. The parents disown Fahm. The brother is still free and plans to come back to Canada with a false passport to do what?

Niagara Author - John HartigLove and Faith Trilogy: Book Two explores "Modern Clashes of Cultures". It sees Ahmad fully trained as an ISIS fighter after a year of living in Syria. While in Syria he gets a new name, Galip. He is given the task of beheading somebody which is videotaped and then put on the internet. Fahm, recognizes her brother despite the niqab he wears. It's by the eyes. Ahmad receives a new mission with a new passport under the name of "Ossi". He is told to come back to Canada to bomb the subway in Toronto. The plan is foiled. "Ossi" goes to plan B which is to locate Fahm in Hamilton, and there kill her. Detective Spencer saves the day.

Meanwhile, in the larger picture, Canada experiences tragedies as a nation. Patrice Vincent, a soldier, is killed by a car driven by an ISIS terrorist in Quebec, and Corporal Nathan Cirillo is shot dead on Parliament Hill. “Islamophobia” grows noticeably in Canada and hate videos are uploaded to Youtube. Symon makes one more trek with his camera to Ball’s Falls for more scenery photographs while he is still able to do this before cancer claims his life. Wally writes a stirring poem included in the end of Book Two.

Niagara Author - John HartigLove and Faith Trilogy: Book Three asks the question: "Can a Muslim girl and a white Christian make it work ?" Book Three describes the last two months of Symon's life. However, on a lighter side, Book Three tracks the love story behind Christopher Unger and Lenya, as well as the progressing romance between Spencer and Fahm, their Baptism as Christians, and their planned honeymoon in Paris, France. Except for Spencer and Fahm, the date for their honeymoon is all wrong! January 7, 2015, the day that the Kouachi Brothers shoot up the Charlie Hebdo Magazine. But not all is lost...

If you start out with Book One, don't forget to continue with "Modern Clashes of Cultures" in Book Two and then, the question of "Can a Muslim Girl and a White Infidel Make it Work?" in Book Three. The books are full of facts and imagination, full of danger and hope. An enjoyable read.

Niagara Author - John HartigCrooked Bay Police Story depicts a quiet little town on the west coast of Newfoundland. It has a bunch of little houses, two churches, "The Reserve" and an RCMP outpost. Since the Lucky Strike Mining Company found gold north-east of town, Crooked Bay has been going through an economic boom, bringing in lots of people looking for work. Sgt. Brett Wilson thinks that an economic boom is not necessarily a good thing for a small town. The police department, manned by three officers, has its hands full already, trying to keep up with abuse at the seniors' home, poachers on The Reserve, teenage drunkenness, a car theft and the usual break and entry. What they don't need now is the town's first murder! A teenager, recently released from juvenile detention, is accused...except he did not do it! The real killer hides behind a mask of status and respectability. How will the RCMP bring him to justice?
