I will also be at Chapters/Signal Hill Friday, Feb. 1 from 1 – 5 for a signing. Please come by and say hello!
Now that Christmas is over I’m turning my attention to schools and libraries. I had a great stroke of luck in that and old friend of mine has written two Lesson Plans for teachers to go with the book. He is Order of Canada and Queen’s Jubilee medal winning history teacher, Robin Barker-James! So I’m excited about that. The two plans are comprehensive; one for Literacy/English and the other for History.
Bonfire is still selling in stores and I’m signing up with a distributor within the next week.
Three parts of new reviews:
“Your epilogue produced tears in me as you wrote straight from the heart. Something to really be proud of. We are soldiers and artists of Remembrance.” – Robin Barker-James, award winning Ontario history teacher
“Enjoyed thoroughly. Page turner. Just loved the narrative being told from the perspective of the horse. And shining through the narrative were the greatest virtues that living beings possess; friendship, loyalty, devotion. No Canadian can read this without being inspired. Thanks for writing a superlative book about a great Canadian.” – Charles Adler, radio and television journalist.
“You have created a beautiful book – a keeper, and the amount of research and love you have put into this project just oozes from it! I know so much more about our ancestor and teacher, John McCrae, than ever before.Thank you and congratulations!” – Ed Tick, psychologist, founder of Soldier’s Heart and author, War and the Soul (2005), Warrior’s Journey Home, (coming soon).
