Whew!

Sometimes things happen so fast, I can’t keep up. It’s been such a hectic fall, I haven’t had a chance to blow my own horn! What’s a shamelessly self-promoting author to do??!!

So, I’m happy to say that Water Wow! has recently won the American Institute of Physics Science Writing for Children Award. WOW!! I’m not sure how that happened. (The last time I took physics was in Grade 9.)

Water Wow! is also a finalist for the Norma Fleck Non-Fiction Award. Winners are announced Nov 21. How exciting! Fingers crossed.

And finally, Eat Up! has been nominated for the OLA Silver Birch Non-Fiction Award. Kids will vote for their favourite book and winners will be announced in May.

I’m feeling very lucky (and a little overwhelmed) lately. Thank you to everyone who makes these awards happen. They make a huge difference to authors like me.
