Brampton Library Showcase of Local Authors 2024-25

Forecasted thundershowers held off last June 22nd’s launch of Brampton Showcase of Local Authors. The library promotes the participants for the entire year by adding the books to their collection and building social media buzz for the many local authors.

As one of those, I’m proud to be included in Brampton LIbrary’s Local Authors Showcase 2024-25. You can borrow my book with your library card (get a Brampton Library card here) and explore this year’s showcase for more great titles by authors living in Peel Region. Read local!

OGS - Ontario Genealogical Society June 2024

Hundreds of avid family historians gathered in Toronto to explore their genealogical roots. Thanks to one member of my support community, Lynn Palermo, founder of The Family History Writing Studio, I setup a display of my published works at her booth.

I connected with longtime friends, including with Sue Sullivan of Family Ancestrees, who helped transform my manuscripts into printed books, and met many new acquaintances.

I met with many people who want to bring history to life. Seeing the results of my work and diving into some examples of translating facts about real people and social history into novels inspires would-be storytellers.
