I’m thrilled to announce I’ve been chosen to be a Toronto Dominion Canada Book Week Author for 2015! I’ll be heading to Manitoba May 2 to 9 to do presentations and book signings at libraries, schools, and book stores. I’m also hoping to have time to visit the new Human Rights Museum in Winnipeg; workers’ and women’s rights have been important threads within my trilogy, which you can check out on my new Facebook Page: THE RACHEL TRILOGY https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Rachel-Trilogy/1470362746529513?ref=bookmarks

On September 21, I’ll be at Toronto’s Word on the Street National Book & Magazine Festival, signing copies of RACHEL’S HOPE, which comes out one week earlier. I’ll be at my publisher’s booth–Second Story Press–and I’ll be roaming the festival to hear presentations by other authors. This free event takes place at Queen’s Park Circle from 11 am to 6 pm (www.thewordonthestreet.ca)

To celebrate the culmination of THE RACHEL TRILOGY, I’ll be giving away a signed set at the launch for RACHEL’S HOPE –Sunday, September 28 at 2:00 pm at A Different Drummer Books, Burlington, Ontario (513 Locust Street). I’ve held my other two launches in this beautiful 1903 building with its three floors of books, where prominent authors including Timothy Findley and Emma Donoghue have spoken. I’ll be doing a short presentation about the history behind the story, along with a reading. Refreshments will be served and there’s no cost, unless you choose to buy one or all of my books!

If you’re a teacher, be sure to look at my Literature Guides for the books in the Rachel Trilogy which are written to Common Core and the National Council of the Teachers of English Standards, and they’re free! I’ve also included writing tips and exercises which can be accessed by clicking the “On Writing” tab.
