I was absolutely blown away this week. My book Neil Flambe and the Marco Polo Murders was the winner of the Silver Birch award for Fiction. This award is an author's favourite - because it's voted on by students in grades 4-6 all across Ontario. The finalists are always amazing, and the list this year was great.

This is me at the ceremony on a windy day at Harbourfront.

Too loong...

Boy has it been a long time since I posted. OOPS. I've just wrapped up an amazing week in Quebec touring as part of the TD Bookweek! Something like 18 school visits over 5 days. I'll be at Pages in St. Leonard tomorrow. I hope to have some pics up soon. In the meantime, here are some pics from my recent research trip to Paris. I drew little Neil Flambe pics on all the placemats... did the staff throw them out? burn them? keep them? Dunno....
