Bird Watching on Grand Manaan Island

If you’ve read LET THE SHADOWS FALL BEHIND YOU, you know it opens with Brannagh and Nikki on a bird count in Northern Ontario…just before Nikki vanishes into thin air. She’s a naturalist illustrator and he’s a wildlife preservationist. In real life…internationally renowned birder, Jim Wilson, recently took the Saint John Naturalist Club on a trip to Grand Manaan island in the Bay of Fundy. What a gorgeous spot! Happy to report, nothing disappeared but lunch.

You can view a slide show of all the photos I took on KATHY-DIANE’s MYSPACE blog or profile.

Me and My Slide Show

bird8Rather than sing ‘Me and My Shadow,’  I’m singing ‘Me and my Slide Show’ these days.  I’ve created 2 news ones on MySpace.  One is of birds in flight, which I’ve always found inspires the poet in me. No suprise LET THE SHADOWS FALL BEHIND YOU opens on a bird count up north and, later, Brannagh is often gazing up at the sky trying to identify a bird from its wing markings or span. 


The second slide show is simply a collage of SHADOWS which, given the title of my debut novel, is  self-explanatory.  I have to ask Santa for a new digital camera for Christmas!
