Hackmatack at Hawthorn

I was invited to be the author in attendance at Hawthorn School in Dartmouth NS for the delivery of the Hackmatack Children’s Choice Award titles, on September 14th at 9:30 a.m.

I was only just back from a trip out west, so I was a bit jet-lagged! It was a lovely event. The Education Minister, Marilyn More, was there and explained to the audience of students, teachers and guests why the NS Department of Education is investing over $200,000 this year for the Hackmatack program – clearly they’re in support of reading!
I attended Hawthorn School many years ago, for grade six, so it was fun to be back.

Book review of The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy

This past July, Francesco Paonessa took the time to review the new book coming out about Prinny.  It’ s the first review of “The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy,” the sequel to “The Nine Lives of Travis Keating.”  To say I’m happy with the review is to put it mildly!

Here’s his review, and I thank him for taking the time to read my work.
