The Seer Trilogy Newsletter
Since the publication of The Druid and the Dragon last October, I have been emailing a newsletter to interested readers on the 15th of each month. The newsletter includes trivia, a blog, announcements, updates, reviews, a character of the month, and assorted bits of fun. Sign up is easy. Just go to my contact page (It's listed under the About dropdown in the menu), write newsletter in the subject box, and provide me with your name and email in the body. That's it!
This month we're having a bit of fun imagining The Druid and the Dragon as a movie.
I've Been Interviewed
I was recently interviewed by NF Reads. The interview is up on their website -- everything from what inspires me, to bad reviews, and what's up next.
Cabin Girl Goes to Denmark
In 2017 Orca Book Publishers sold Cabin Girl to Bibliodan, a Danish publisher, but only yesterday did I see the cover on the Internet. I should be receiving my copy soon.
The Bridge of Whispers will be in bookstores on September 28th. Here's a peek at the cover so you know what to look for. Rejoin Maeve as she continues the search for her identity, while battling evil along the way.
N.B. -- You can pre-order your copy at a bookstore near you or at Amazon and other online booksellers.
I recently signed the contract for the 3rd book of The Seer Trilogy. Good thing too, since I'm already working on Chapter 5. This one is called The Sorcerer's Revenge and is scheduled for release in the fall of 2022.

I Read Canadian Day -- February 17th
What will you be reading?
So I have just begun revisions for Book ll of The Seer Trilogy, and the first thing to be changed is the title. The Seer's Daughter is no more. The second installment of Maeve's saga is now called
THE BRIDGE OF WHISPERS.
It is my publisher's suggestion, and to be truthful, I like it. So it's all good.
EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
Cabin Girl Re-Issued!
As a former teacher, I know how important hi-lo books are. As a writer, I am proud to say I've contributed 10 titles to libraries worldwide. And now Orca Book Publishers has improved the format, making these novels even more accessible to struggling readers. Well done, Orca.

The first draft of Book ll, The Seer's Daughter is with my beta readers, and I'm already planning the third book,

Another Book in the Works!
It's official! I signed the contract this morning with Crwth Press, and in October of 2020, The Druid and the Dragon will be in bookstores.
This is the first fantasy I've had published, so I'm very excited.
Now all I have to do is finish writing it.
