The Hidden Agenda of Sigrid Sugden

I’ve just signed the contract for the third book of the trilogy, the second sequel to “The Nine Lives of Travis Keating.” The working title is “The Hidden Agenda of Sigrid Sugden.”

In Prinny’s story, Sigrid was one of the Shrikes, the three girls who bullied Prinny. At the end of that book, Sigrid makes a phone call when Prinny is in real danger. A phone call the other two Shrikes don’t know about.

I found myself wondering…what will happen to Sigrid when they find out?

I plan to start writing after the Red Maple trip in May.

And I’m off to Newfoundland for a few days at the end of May, so that’ll really help.

Home Truths One of Ten Nominees for Red Maple

Home Truths, juvenile fiction book
Plans are settling into place for the Red Maple celebrations in Toronto and Ottawa in May. “Home Truths” is one of the ten nominees. I’ll be visiting schools in Uxbridge and Ottawa, doing signings and Q/A sessions, and meeting a lot of kids who have read the book. Always fun to do that. Writing is so solitary, that it’s wonderful to actually meet people who have actually read your book.

Oh, and I had a delightful phone interview with the student who will be introducing me at Harbourfront. So many perks to the writing game.
