The new year brings good news. My latest book Dawning of a New Garden will be released by Inanna next year.  Although it is a follow-up to Priya's World, it can read as a stand alone novel. We see Priya ten years later in St. John's NL with a whole new set of issues and challenges to overcome.

As I detach emotionally from the novel, I will turn my attention to an online novel, as yet untitled that I will be posting chapter by chapter for all my web fans and friends. Stay tuned for more details as I forge ahead with my online adventure.
