SHADOW cover (for Net)FinalShadowQueen

The Shadow Queen, a “sister” novel to Mistress of the Sunwas published on April 8, 2014, in both the US and Canada, where it made the Globe & Mail Canadian Bestseller list.

It is now out in paperback in both the U.S. and Canada. (The Canadian paperback edition is on the right.) I’ve also published an e-book edition, making it available to readers outside the U.S. and Canada.

Events coming up

My talk/reading at the Bonnechere Authors’ Festival 2015 in Eganville, Ontario, on July 29, was great fun. Full house!


Next up: the StarFest in St. Albert, Alberta, on October 16.

In 2016, I will be part of two panel discussions at the San Miguel Writers’ Conference, one at 9:00 am on February 11, and the other on February 14 at 11:00. This is a wonderful conference in magical San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico. This conference sells out, so if you’re tempted: go for it! I guarantee that you will not regret it.
