Thanks so much to Nelson Phillips of the Wiarton Echo for the write up! It’s so exciting to celebrate with my hometown, especially as I began writing the Tales of the Captain Duke while living in the area.

The book launch tour for From Haven to Hell was a resounding success! I am currently sipping tea and trying to recover my senses after such overwhelming displays of support in Toronto, Ottawa and Owen Sound. Thank you to all my readers, old and new, and everyone who helped make this incredible dream come true.

“The brass was tarnished and the paintings worn, but the manor itself was well-kept. Lush occasional chairs and small tables dotted the hall and the landing as they made their way up a grand curved staircase to the second floor. Faded damask fabric hinted at a former glory, now settled into comfortable squalor in its senescence. Light filtered in through tall windows. The furnishings were threadbare, but the house retained a sense of life. It carried itself with the impression of stateliness, humble in its decline.” – Chapter 3, From Haven to Hell

Over the next month, I’ll be posting treats here for the lead up to the release of Book 2 – Tales of the Captain Duke: From Haven to Hell, including character bios, sneak peaks, and the cover reveal.

Stay tuned for the official release date and launch parties!
