TimeShift is a gripping journey of suspense, drama and sci-fi action spanning 900 years in 185 days. Four interconnected story lines turn up the heat in this futuristic mystery techno-thriller. 570 pages.
Kris Trudeau lives in the Comox Valley on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The completion of her debut novel, TimeShift, marks the end of a six-year journey that began in Winnipeg, Manitoba from where she originally hails.
Owner of a website development and graphic design firm called Halftone Pixel, Kris spends her days helping organizations in the Comox Valley as well as across Canada grow their business. Writing became a passion for Kris in the last decade both in business and for leisure. For fiction, she finds the creative process to be a fascinating, magical experience and is looking forward to exploring several ideas for future stories.
In her spare time, Kris enjoys the company of family and friends and riding into the sunset on her motorcycle. She is a firm believer in giving back to one’s community and donates time to local causes and non-profit organizations. Athletic by nature, she participates in a variety of sports and enjoys exploring the natural paradise of Vancouver Island.
With over fifteen years as a website and graphic designer, Kris Trudeau has established one of the Comox Valley’s premiere website and graphic design studios, Halftone Pixel Website Design, which celebrated its fifth anniversary in December 2016.
Kris has been a senior-level front-end developer, print designer and project manager for over fifteen years. Her breadth of experience includes seven years of personnel management experience and two years as a creative director and a whole lot of project management experience.
Halftone Pixel now has clients across Canada; the majority of which came to her through word of mouth. She attributes her success to the solid processes and project management skills she has honed during her eleven years in the corporate world, prior to Halftone Pixel.
"TimeShift is a wonderfully crafted, unique mix of wit, wonder, and excitement. The lovable, robust characters, imaginative gadgets and unexpected twists keep you coming back for more. It is a delightful foray into the potential of human ingenuity and the capacity to conquer all odds in the fight for survival."
“Kris did a great job in designing my company’s website. Not only is she a good creative designer, but she is well-versed in other web areas. This resulted in a site which not only looks professional and beautiful, but is optimized for SEO. Moreover, Kris flexibly accommodates to client requests, while also sharing her point of view, leading to better joint decisions. Finally, Kris is well-organized, and reacts very quickly to communication. She delivered the site 2 weeks ahead of schedule!”

"I read TimeShift this summer and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The character development is really strong, you truly care about their story and their well-being. The world Kris Trudeau created is rich and immersive and relatable enough to really touch home. The story is exciting and really a page turner in the last third as the pressure builds!"
“Diving head on starting a business is scary enough, but add uncertainty and it can make you stall altogether. Kris at Halftone Pixel was so supportive through the whole process. You can be sure she will think of designs and solutions you have never thought of. We made the classic rookie mistake of doing a quick and cheap label design at a well-known website and paid the price, literally! By investing just a little more with Kris, we ended up with a completely new product. When we brought our product into stores and it stood next to the others, we were proud and excited instead of embarrassed and uncertain!
