The Month of October has been a busy time. This update has the latest news on a public reading held last month in Toronto, information on how The Woodcarver’s Model is spreading across the country through public libraries, recent reviews, new work, and if you read to the end, you can find out how you might be selected to receive an autographed copy of a poster and novel of The Woodcarver’s Model.
THE FIRST PUBLIC READING
On October 16th, a lively crowd came out to hear a reading from The Woodcarver’s Model. I also provided an exclusive sneak peek into the world of my new book Mann Hunt. There was food and drink, lots of books were sold and it was wonderful to do an event in-person. Thanks to the Madison Pub for their gracious hospitality and to all those who came out and made the afternoon so special.
THE WOODCARVER’S MODEL
GOES TO THE LIBRARY
It is important to me that my books are as widely accessible as possible. I am thrilled to report that libraries across the country have started picking up digital copies of The Woodcarver’s Model. The Toronto Public Library system has three copies (with a lengthy waiting list to read the book), and the Edmonton Public Library has joined in. If you are in another major Canadian city and have a public library card, you can recommend the book to the library and then they will consider it for their catalogue. Click one of the Canadian cities below to see if you can access the book yet. If you don’t see your city listed, simply check in with your local library and they will tell you how to make a recommendation.
OVER 50 REVIEWS AND STILL GOING STRONG
The Woodcarver’s Model continues to garner great reviews, and just passed 50 ratings on Goodreads with an average review of over 4 stars.

IS NOW WITH THE PUBLISHER
Mann Hunt is my latest book, and after substantial revisions, it is now with the publisher. Watch this newsletter for information as the piece goes through editing, gets its new cover and moves towards release dates in the spring. This novel follows gay detective Declan Hunt as he tries to unravel a murder case, along with his new assistant Charlie Watts. The novel is filled with twists and turns, humour, mystery and lots of fascinating characters.
NOT, NOT NORMAL IS IN REVISIONS
My latest project is a youth novella dealing with loss, the things we do to take control of our lives, and how a single individual can shake us out of those patterns and get us back to life. The novella has gone through a full first draft and is in revisions before submission. I won’t say much more at the present, but it is exciting to be delving into fiction for young audiences.
