The June Bug Catcher
by Heather Ball

Winner of the Illumination Award, the Independent Publisher Book Award and the Eric Hoffer Finalist Award. The June Bug Catcher is a novel about a young woman in search of herself. Emma Drei thought she had a sparkling future awaiting her. Her adoring fiancé seems keen to build with her a life of fulfilled dreams. That is, until an unexpected development throws a painful wrench into these plans, leaving Emma shattered. Yet, life can turn on a dime, as Emma learns when she makes an impulsive decision to leave her native Victoria, BC, home and seek a fresh start in Australia. Her bold move Down Under delivers all manner of unexpected pleasures to her reinvented life, including friendships, romance, and a new appreciation for God. Here is a story about second chances, and the way a new life can rise out of the ashes of lost opportunities. Journey with Emma into enormous adventures in a spectacular physical environment, exploring the fresh bliss found as much in her relationships as in her faith.

The June Bug Catcher is an entertaining book that will no doubt capture the imagination of anyone who likes a good story. —Editor, Laura Pratt.

Heather Ball was born and raised in Victoria, BC, and currently resides in Nanaimo, BC. Ball, who works as a hospital-based sterile supply technician, is a Christian who came to faith at the age of fourteen. When she’s not working on her book, she enjoys kayaking, travelling, photography, hiking, and napping. She also likes hanging out with her husband, Warren, who works as a long-haul trucker. It’s when he’s away working that she finds the space and time to write. Ball was inspired to write this Christian romance as a reflection of God’s grace. The June Bug Catcher is her first book.
