It was 1971 when the idea for No Killers, No Cowards (SummerWild $25) first came to Ken Budd after a strange encounter at a Tofino radar lookout, but it was not until the 2020 global pandemic that the book came to life. In-between those years, Budd retired as a teacher, began his own book production company and wrote four youth fiction books. No Killers introduces readers to Jed McKittrick, whose family has a genetic curse where only male twins are born and one twin always dies. Against a backdrop of World War II, this novel tells of Jed’s struggles growing up with the curse, and the challenges he faces at an isolated Tofino outpost after enlisting with the RCAF. 9780991912643
