Eden Mills 2014!


Ahem, yes, bad blogger. What can I say? Knee replacement surgery, flooded basement, busy life. Lots of stuff has happened since my last post – plenty of book love for NEVER LET YOU GO (thank you!), appearances on TV (!), a super fun book tour in Saskatchewan. Summer was quiet, but now Fall approaches with all its busy blustery bookiness.

First on the agenda – The Eden Mills Writers Festival! Sunday September 14th, from 2:30-2:50.

Check out their web site to see all the amazing authors who are attending!

I’ve presented at Eden Mills before, and I loved it. Here’s hoping for great weather tomorrow!

The Beat of a Different Drummer

Also excited to mention that I’ll be having one more NEVER LET YOU GO book launch at one of my favourite book stores, A Different Drummer in Burlington. This launch means a lot to me, because I spent a lot of time as a teen hanging out in that old Victorian House, browsing books, buying what I could afford, and playing with their cat. It was a peaceful safe haven for me, and I wish this lovely store many more years of success.


What’s Not to Love About CAKE?

Even though I had to get up early in the morning with the hubby yesterday morning, I ended up having tons of fun. Guy and I did a performance of our play, The Pirate and the Penguin at the Comic Arts for Kids Expo (CAKE), a daylong, interactive celebration of image-based storytelling, which took place at the Lillian H. Smith Library.  After the play I did a short cartooning workshop, showing kids & parents how easy it was to draw pirates and penguins.

I truly love drawing and performing for kids. And though I always encourage these little creators to keep their own drawings, I really do love it when they give me their art. Here’s some samples from yesterday’s fun event:


A big thank-you must go out to Small Print Toronto, Little Island Comics and the Toronto Public Library for joining forces and creating this amazing day.

I love getting emails
