An adult choose your own adventure featuring a doorbell chime and a refrigerator hum.
Delving under the surface of what seems familiar, author Jen Powley takes us on a tour of Halifax that's full of fun and peril. In this wonderful work of the imagination, trickster sounds talk back, hitch rides and share unexpected adventures with the most unsuspecting humans.
Sounds Like a Halifax Adventure is sure to surprise and inform those who like having a narrative delivered just as much as it will startle and delight those who prefer building their own.

Jen Powley is a prairie girl living in Canada’s ocean playground. Since moving to Halifax in 2001, she has held jobs at the Independent Living Resource Centre (now Independent Living Nova Scotia) and the Nova Scotia League for Equal Opportunities. Realizing she could not engineer the type of societal change she wanted, Powley returned to school earning her Master’s of Urban Planning at Dalhousie University, and then worked for five years at the Ecology Action Centre. Losing her voice due to her multiple sclerosis, Powley recognized the presentations the job required were no longer feasible so she returned to the University of King’s College to pursue her Master’s of Fine Arts in Creative Non-Fiction.
