Prize winner?

In my view a book is a dead thing after I'm done with writing it. It's just paper and board... until someone reads the story and created their own view of my world in their mind.

And I am always inspired by how that world comes alive.

So, this week breakfast with me was the "prize" for a group of school kids who competed in the Kids Lit Quiz Canada.

But they treated ME with a whole menu made up of Neil Flambe inspired foods!



Quiche!
Capers!
Chai! (not poisoned... I think)
Scones!
Grape and Cheese!
AND... they gave me a bag of home-made preserves!

I realized pretty quickly that I'd WON the prize!

Hi Kevin,

I was given a copy of The Marco Polo Murders at the KLQ world final in NZ last year. Since then I have purchased the others and they are never on the shelf!
Happy writing (and cooking!)

Thanks!

If you ever want to invite an author for a visit... I love to travel!
