Prinny Launches with Many Friends

Last night “The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy” was launched at the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia in Halifax.

A fine gathering of family and friends helped me celebrate Prinny’s appearance in the world of print.

Trudy Carey introduced me (just as she did last year for Nine Lives), I read two sections (one a cliff-hanger!), my daughter-in-law (to whom the book is dedicated) brought home made chocolate chips cookies and fudge, and Woozles (Halifax’s children’s bookstore) sold books.

Thanks to all of you.

Enjoy some of the pictures from the night.

 

 

 

Travis nominated for the Silver Birch Award

It’s official! “The Nine Lives of Travis Keating” is one of ten novels for grades 3-6 nominated for the Silver Birch Award in the Festival of Trees.
The Nine Lives of Travis Keating

 

This award is sponsored by the Ontario Library Association ; the book will go into many schools in Ontario, and in the spring the children will vote on their favourites. Needless to say, I’m really happy that Nine Lives will be read by so many kids.

The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy Launch

“The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy” should be in the bookstores by the end of October.

It will be launched at the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia in Halifax on October 27th at 7 pm.

I’m looking forward to this event.
