Gibsons Craft Fair Nov. 20-21

It was fun to be Queen for a Day (actually, it was two days)
at Sunnycrest Mall, Gibsons

Once again, I had a great time signing and selling Six Stinky Feet and a Sasquatch and my other books Nov. 20-21 at Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons, BC. Bought a crocheted crown from Ruby, the vendor beside me, and wore it both days. For people who prefer to buy online, Six Stinky Feet is available at Chapters/Indigo, Amazon.ca, and Peppermint Toast Publishing.

Book launch and signing

Want a signed copy of a fun story for kids? I’ll be selling and signing copies of my new picture book Six Stinky Feet and a Sasquatch on Saturday, March 21 at the Chapters bookstore in Coquitlam, BC. Watch for me from 1 to 3 pm at the Chapters store in the Pinetree Village on Lougheed Highway.

Young Writers’ Festival, Gibsons, Feb. 26

I’m one of five authors who will be doing a reading and presentation to kindergarten and grade one students at Gibsons Elementary School in Gibsons, BC on Wednesday, Feb. 26. I’ll be sharing my new picture book Six Stinky Feet and a Sasquatch and talking about “Picture Books: Fact and Fiction.” I look forward to hearing what the students have written. It should be a fun half-day.

Picture book launch Dec. 7: Six Stinky Feet and a Sasquatch

It was fun presenting my new picture book, Six Stinky Feet and a Sasquatch, to an audience of young and old Dec. 7 at Sechelt Public Library. Andy Johnson, storyteller for the shishalh Nation, shared a sasquatch song he composed and told a sasquatch story. I’m honoured to know that he plans to read my book to shishalh kids.

At the event, I wore a red hoodie with the sasquatch design by shishalh Nation member Candace Campo. She explained to me how cultural Indigenous tradition determines the shape of each eye of the creature’s face. At the end of my fictional story, I include some cultural history and trivia regarding the sasquatch and a few URLs and book titles for those who want to find out more about this mysterious creature.

The hard-cover book, published by Peppermint Toast Publishing, features illustrations by talented Vancouver, BC animator Lillian Lai. The book is $18. Ten per cent of proceeds support pediatric palliative care in British Columbia.
