What I’m Reading – February 22, 2017

I’m reading a book titled Brother XII’s Treasure. It’s a fun book about seven children from England who travel to British Columbia in 1936 for a sailing adventure.


Victoria Children’s Literary Roundtable – February 21, 2017

Recently I attended the Victoria Children’s Literary Roundtable here in Victoria, British Columbia. It was a very enjoyable and worthwhile session. The cost for ‘dropping in’ is $7.00 and a membership is $25.00 .

Sarah Harvey, an editor from Orca Book Publishers, gave a short talk and then answered questions. Clearly from what she was saying there are opportunities for writers of middle grade and young adult fiction. Orca is a medium-size publisher and one of the few remaining independents.

Two key take-aways from the evening: 1) your writing must be excellent, and 2) your networking must be excellent.

The first of six mystery stories – One Very Dead Rabbit – in the Billy Fender Private Investigator series is almost here!

Target readers are middle-grade readers, their parents, and all readers interested in a fun, diverse story.

Beta readers are helping me hone the story. Looking very good!

Stay tuned for purchasing information.
