Much as I would love to receive notes about my books and the website, I have disabled the  comment section (I hope) – to avoid the onslaught of garbage spam that gets through. Until I find someone to clean up the site, please email me if you’d like to get in touch. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.

June 2019
I am currently distracted from writing fiction by a non fiction book for children ages 9 to 12 about homelessness, under contract to Orca Book Publishers, Victoria BC. Publication date tbd. 

It is possibly the hardest project I have ever undertaken – and the most rewarding. I am posting occasionally on my blog about the research and work involved. And I will be sharing more about this project as it moves along.

Meanwhile, please stay a while. Look around. Check out my books. And information about my presentations. Find out what I’m doing in the community these days. Read and comment on my blog.

And do give me a shout. I’m always happy to hear from readers and writers, children and adults.

Thanks for visiting. Come back soon.
