- Earlier this week, I gave a newspaper interview about my second Lake Champlain historical novel for young readers, Champlain and the Silent One. I had forgotten that it was running in today’s newspaper and just about spit out my coffee when I saw a frighteningly large photograph of myself on the Family Page of the Press Republican. It’s accompanied by a very nice article by Robin Caudell, a writer whose reviews I always enjoy. The article is online here (It’s okay to click if you’d like to read it…the online image isn’t quite as big and scary.)
- It snowed more than expected yesterday, so it looks like we have enough for cross country skiing this weekend!
- This book is wonderful.
I didn’t plan on reading it this week. I bought it as a gift but set it aside while I was wrapping and found myself "pre-reading" it…you know…the way you taste the fudge to make sure it’s okay? Now I have to go out and buy a bunch more. It is the absolutely perfect gift for anyone who appreciates the power of the written word to bring people together. Read it!
