CANSCAIP (Canadian Society of Children’s Authors, Illustrators and Performers) (repeat that with your eyes closed) asked me if I’d write a profile of the YA writer Don Aker for the Fall/Winter issue of their magazine, CANSCAIP News.
What fun it was! I read all I could find online about Don – along with all his YA titles, he’s also written for middle readers, One on One.
We talked face to face non-stop for three hours, then I wrote the profile.
This is a new venture for me. I think it’s called non-fiction. You have to stick to the facts. But I hope I will have conveyed my admiration and respect for a fine writer.
The Space Between is my favourite of all his books, and his too.
And then there’s The First Stone.
If you haven’t yet discovered Don, you have a treat in store.
