Your courageous book has reminded me of the power of writing.
I was delighted to see this familiar neighbourhood and time imagined so vividly on the page. And Chinook Centre, too!
You have a way of weaving life-shaping memories into those scattered moments of the here-and-now that we can all share. Thank you for every page.
I was so impressed with how you described the area, the trappings of the times, the special little corners and what it was like to be a child growing up.
Your book made me laugh out loud and it brought me to tears. The way you evoke and deal with your fear is so honest and so helpful, insightful, and will be for other women.
Ok. It’s not just a girl book. The thing is that most people do not share themselves like you did in your book. It makes us feel better that everyone has a little anxiety, doubts, fears…
You’ve found that sweet spot between the personal and the universal and done so with just the right amount of humour, reflection and seriousness. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for your readers next!
