As I come up for some air between readings and writing work I just wanted to say how much fun I had visiting with the King David High School kids at the Jewish Book Festival in Vancouver as well as all the kids who came to the Burnaby Library and the amazing eighth graders at Scott Creek Middle School. As an author you spend the majority of your time huddled over your computer, all by yourself, working on your story and characters. It’s really nice to get out and read to an audience, hear their reaction, and answer all the thoughtful questions. I have to thank Nicole Nozick from the Jewish Book Festival for inviting me to read at the festival, as well as Sarah Lee at the Burnaby Library, Chris Miller at the Coquitlam Library and Cindy Kloos at the Richmond Library.
Now it’s back to my cave and computer to finish up the work on the new book (Beat the Band) as well as the rewrite on the Swim the Fly screenplay!
