News & Events

The Game of Hope, my first Young Adult novel, will be published by Penguin on May 1 in Canada and on June 26 in the U.S.

Above, the Canadian edition is on the left, and the U.S. edition is on the right. As you can see, there is very little difference between them.


In addition to school visits, a big launch at Penguin on May 22, I have these two wonderful events to look forward to.

Montreal YA Fest

May 27: Montreal YA Fest. It’s their inaugural festival, and it’s going to be a lot of fun. They are very active on Twitter — hashtag #mtlyafest. Click here to see their first tweet about The Game of Hope.

The Word on the Street

I’ve always wanted to go to this event, so I’m stoked.

The Russian rights to The Game of Hope have been sold. This pleases me!

There is now a beautiful edition of the Josephine B. Trilogy. Here is the link to The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B., the first of the Trilogy — but they are all available online.

Soon there will be an Audible edition for The Game of Hope as well.

The CBC journalist Talin Vartanian mentioned me in an article on the vibrant creative community of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico: How a small city in Mexico has become a vibrant haven for Canadian artists.

What I’m writing now

I am now writing another Young Adult novel, this time about a girl falconer in Elizabethan England. It’s a big departure for me, and very exciting.

I’m also painting raptors.
