My new book, The Smell of Paint, is finally out!

So, I'm trying blogger out as a more user-friendly version of a website just to see how it goes. I'll start by posting my new book, The Smell of Paint which will be in bookstores near you in the next week or so. It's a novel for ages 11 and up, with the main character being 14. Check it out.

This is the ad copy written by my favourite editor Ann Featherstone...

For a track star, the race never ends

All Jess can do is run—from her mom’s illness, her family’s grief, her friends’ sympathy. But when Jess finally stops, who will be there to help her face the truth?

It's published by Fitzhenry & Whiteside, and will be available in both the US and Canada. I've already had my first good review which included a not so great picture of me at the track with kids and the coach from my kids' former high school running in the foreground. I'd include a link, but it's already in the pay section of the oneline version of the Times Colonist's and I doubt that, however much you love me, you won't be subscribing to the TC just to read that article. If you happen to be in Victoria on October 16th though, you could drop by Spectrum School @ 957 Burnside Rd to a group launch that will include my new book along with new titles from Kit Pearson, John Wilson, Adrienne Mason, Penny Chamberlain, and Dianna Bondar.
