Since my last blog post, I was thrilled to learn that Jack Foster will be the illustrator for my upcoming picture book for children, Happy Haiku. Jack has illustrated over seventy children’s books, and when you see them, you’ll see why he’s in demand. I’ll keep you posted when I get a release date!
Recently, I was honoured to do a fun interview with a blog in the UK, Novelkicks. I’ll share it on facebook, as soon as it’s out. Check it out in the meantime, for book reviews, author interviews, and all things novel.
For anyone local, there’s a launch at the charming bookshop, A Different Drummer, on Sunday, May 19th, for the latest books by the prolific and terrific authors, Melodie Campbell and Sylvia McNicoll. Sure to be a good time!
To everyone who is a mother, or has a mother, have a special and happy mother’s day.
My own mom has been gone a long time, but what I still wouldn’t give to have one more lunch with her. The cycle of life has given me the gift of my own children though, and I’ll be spending time with them and my grandchildren this weekend, feeling beyond blessed. This month’s quote from Erma Bombeck is a nod to my mom, who loved a good laugh, and who loved Erma Bombeck’s humour.
Quote: “Thanks to my mother, not a single cardboard box has found its way back into society. We receive gifts in boxes from stores that went out of business years ago.”
