Summer Reading

I love summer, especially when I have time to curl up with a good book. You can see what I have read and what I am currently reading here:

It's a fun website where you can start your own list of books.

Happy reading!


Shortlisting for Book Award!

Since the 'facelift' of my new website, we've been trying to add a blog.
Hopefully, this one is going to work and will allow me to add news and updates on a regular basis.

My big news for today is that My Librarian is a Camel (Boyds Mills Press) has been shortlisted for the 2008/9 Young Hoosier Book Award in Indiana! I'm excited about the fact that many readers will be reading the book.


Welcome to my blog!

This will be my very first entry. I just had my website revamped (thanks, Clint!) and hope that this blog will enable me to share news with you on a regular basis.

The school year is just coming to an end. I finished my last author visits to schools in Delta, Maple Ridge and Coquitlam, B.C. While I always love sharing stories with children, I am now looking forward to a summer of reading and writing!

Check out to see which books I am reading.
