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!
Chai! (not poisoned... I think)
Grape and Cheese!
AND... they gave me a bag of home-made preserves!
I realized pretty quickly that I'd WON the prize!
