Thanks to Hampton High School for inviting me to come and talk about my new book. I visited a few different classes and passed along my top 10 tips for writing a novel. What a talented bunch of young people! I expect great things from these budding authors. Many were dressed in their costumes for that night’s opening performance of Alice in Wonderland in the Hampton Community Theater. Kudos on an excellent performance!
Congratulations also goes out to Hendrien in Saint John who won the $125.00 spa gift certificate in the draw at the book launch and signings preceding Christmas. Who couldn’t use some pampering after dealing with power outages, freezing rain, shoveling, shoveling and more shoveling? Luckily, my family all arrived safely and we were together to celebrate the season via flashlight, wool sweaters and lots of board games. Reminded me of the many camping trips we’ve taken through the years minus the mosquitos.
Wishing you and yours all the best in 2014! May it be rich with opportunity and courage.
