Kilimanjaro and Beyond will be re-published on Amazon within the next month under my Keep On Climbing brand. Watch for a special on the day it’s released.
A few book clubs have asked me if study guides are available for my books. They are now available for The Vanishing Wife and A Perilous Question under the “Books” tab. Book clubs are welcome to use them as is or develop them for their own particular needs.
The 60th review was just posted for The Vanishing Wife on Amazon and it was 5-stars! The average for the reviews is 4.3. I’m very proud of that and thank you to everyone who has taken the time to review the book.

I’m honoured to see my book featured at the Nepean Branch of the Ottawa Public Library along with some great titles.
As I reflect on 2016, I have to say it has been a very satisfying year for me as an author. My new book, A Perilous Question, was released in May and won an award as the best crime novel in the e-book category shortly after. There were many book signings and new experiences in this new (to me) world of writing and publishing. I say they were new experiences even though A Perilous Question was my fourth book. I’m learning the business as I go, but I quickly discovered that of everything that revolves around writing and publishing, the most satisfying is knowing that there are people out there reading and enjoying your books. Thank you very much to all of you and have a wonderful 2017.

There are some interesting things coming down the road in time for Christmas. First, I will be signing my books at Walter Baker Arena, 100 Malvern Dr., Nepean, Ontario on December 10 as part of a Christmas Craft Sale. The time is 10 – 4.
As a cyber treat, I Guess We Missed the Boat will be available for download for only .99 the week of November 28. If you don’t have a copy yet, this is your chance to grab one for almost nothing.
Speaking of for nothing, the cover for A Perilous Question has changed and as a Christmas gift to readers of my books, it will be available free on Kindle for a few hours on December 8. Get it while you can.
More treats will follow. Stay tuned.
Had a great time at two book signings on the weekend. The first was at McNally Robinson in Winnipeg, Manitoba and the second at Coles in Brandon. Both were with my good friend and fellow author, Len Westwood. Thanks to everyone who came out.
It was a very good week for my books. The Vanishing Wife became a Kindle bestseller on Amazon.
And A Perilous Question was named solo “Medalist Winner” in the New Apple Literary Awards Suspense / Thriller category of the 2016 Summer eBook Awards!
