Shortlisted for Hackmatack Award

The Nine Lives of Travis Keating” along with nine other books has been shortlisted for the Hackmatack Award for 2010. This is one of several nationwide “tree” awards. Basically, the books are made available in the schools and the students pick their favourites. The Hackmatack is called, rightly, the Children’s Choice Award.

School Visit at Holland Road Elementary

Yesterday I visited two grade 6 classes at Holland Road Elementary, near Fletcher’s Lake, as part of the Writers in the Schools program. It’s the first time I’ve taken part in this program. It’s wonderful to meet with children who are reading my book, and are interested in how it got written, what it’s like being a writer, and so on. Makes the whole process very worthwhile!
