The Copy Cat

Coming March 2020


I love summer!

Autumn used to be my favourite time of the year, but the older I get, the more summer makes me happy – the warmth, the trees, baby critters (there are four baby raccoons living behind our shed right now!)

Other things making me happy:

THE COPYCAT has been chosen as a 2021 Rocky Mountain Book Award Nominee!

If you look at the list below, you will understand how thrilled I am – the other authors are all amazingly talented!

How it works:

“The Rocky Mountain Book Award invites students and educators to participate in our readers’ choice program. This program is designed to stimulate the reading interests of students in grades 4 – 7. The Rocky Mountain Book Award is an Alberta based program designed to connect young readers with exemplary Canadian literature.

The Rocky Mountain Book Award is a readers’ choice program, which invites students to choose the best book from a shortlist. This Alberta-based program is designed to stimulate the reading interests of students in grades 4-7. Students and educators are invited to read exemplary Canadian literature, and then the students vote for their favorite book. This award program is for schools, libraries, and interested groups of students. This may include children who are being home-schooled or families who wish to become involved in reading good Canadian children’s literature. Each reading group must have a teacher or adult leader.”

In this case, it is absolutely an honour to be nominated!

If you recall from previous posts, I am a HUGE proponent of OWN VOICES books and truly support the Black Lives Matter movement. One of the best ways I know to learn about oppression is to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes through a book.

Let me suggest these three to get you going:

All three are wonderful, powerful reads!

I hope you are all staying healthy and enjoying the summer weather.

These are challenging times, but I believe we will get through them!
