While I haven’t been officially notified, a fellow writer friend Jo-Ellen Bogart emailed me that my novel Beauty Returns had been nominated for this teen choice award. The email came
late on Tuesday night when we had stayed up to watch Obama speak after he won the election.
What a delightful surprise! I love the voting awards because so many more kids read the book as a result. I can only hope I make it out to BC to visit some of readers there.
There’s nothing nicer that a sunny fall day at Bronte Creek with Mortie and Will–two best friends since they were little. Wait a minute they’re still little.
You have to wonder what they’re so intent on, right? They’re both staring at the bunny who oddly enough will not come to them despite their whimpers and desperate clawing. The ducks, the playground, the best leash free park in the world–Bronte Creek is my favourite place to skip work for.
