author not pictured

Some time between when we pointed the car towards Florida and made our way back (we had a glorious time, by the way. Few photos this year but it's still this beautiful in Siesta Key), my book was published.

The dogs were less than impressed but the human members of my family are all very proud and I am so pleased to actually have a copy to hold in my hands. You can get yours from Women's Press or wait for details of the launches we are planning in Ottawa and Toronto.




And last night, S. won an Honourable Mention in the short story category (for 9-11 year olds) in the Awesome Authors contest, run by the Ottawa Public Library. His story, "The Man in the Photographs" was about how he never wants to seem as uncool as his father. "Pure fiction," he said at the awards ceremony.
