cover image of Destiny by Carl Howe Hansen

Dr. Peter Petersen’s effort to resolve an environmental threat evolves into a global catastrophe, a rescue, and family reconciliation.

CARL HOWE HANSEN has lived in Port Clyde, Naples, and Bethel, Maine, before returning to his “home” in Sandwich, New Hampshire, but he still keeps his sailboat in Rockland, Maine. He labored as a musician, skier, technician, cabinetmaker, and freelance writer before finishing his first novel, Destiny.

Books will be made available for purchase by Books N Things
