August 2018

Call the cliché police because I’m going to say it right here, right now. Time flies! The year has been a whirlwind of activity and some highlights include presenting at Libraries and book clubs in the area, Fundraising for Literacy, teaching teens at YouthWrite and being named a finalist for the Whistler Independent Book Prize. A website overhaul is being planned. Meanwhile, thanks to everyone for ongoing support of A Wake For The Dreamland and for spreading the word.
