Flight of the Griffons (2014)
"Loyalty to oneself and ethical ideals are at the heart of this brilliant and surprising novel. Environment, red tape, crime, capitalism, and survival are topics ably fielded alongside of faithful stewardship, friendship, and what makes a family." —Tanita Davis, Finding Wonderland
In Flight of the Griffons, Missy Bullseye ventures from her pirate crew's Nova Scotian homebase to begin workterms along the road to union-certified junking. From the deep northern woods of Ontario and Quebec to the great western prairies, Missy wanders far on a secret mission—discovering along the way that heroes can look like villains, crimes can look like profit, and heights aren't so bad as long as a true-hearted pirate is holding the rope.

The Dread Crew (2009)
"...A hilarious and highly imaginative tale that plays with the tradition of Atlantic Canada pirate stories. Inglis's spirited prose is a treat to read. Her descriptions of the pirates' repulsive appearance and foul habits elicit the perfect blend of disgust and glee." — CM Magazine
January Magazine calls The Dread Crew: Pirates Of The Backwoods "a spirited tale, gorgeously rendered." The book was nominated for Hackmatack and Red Cedar Awards, and is now in its fifth edition. The Dread Crew is beautifully illustrated by Halifax native Sydney Smith. Read more about the book.
