Now that BRAVE DEEDS has been nominated for the Silver Birch Award I am getting more calls for information. I will be autographing books atOtter Books in Nelson on Friday, November 28 from 7 to 8 p.m.. Come and meet me and Shira (the wonder dog) at the store and watch me do a Dutch klompen (wooden shoe) dance. I'll also have Dutch keepsakes from the war days and "drop" (Dutch licorice) for you to taste. If you're in the area, do stop in.
I will be off to Victoria for the week of Nov. 30 to Dec. 5.
After that it's back to writing, writing, writing. There's no snow down here yet, so the cross-country skis can't distract me.
If you spent a day shadowing me the way I shadowed ten kids for my latest book "Kids Who Grow Their Own Food" you would find me walking my new puppy, playing with my cat, puttering in the garden and harvesting some food for the day, going for a hike with friends and finishing the day by reading a good book.
