Cover Reveal: Operation Angus

Thursday, April 22nd, 2021

We’ve now finalized the cover for Operation Angus, my eighth novel, due in bookstores August 31, 2021. It certainly is eye-catching. I really love it. A big thanks to Matthew Flute the talented designer at McClelland & Stewart who came up with this design, and to my editor, Bhavna Chauhan, and publisher, Jared Bland, for their guiding hands. I love the little spy running across the roof of Centre Block on Parliament Hill. Perfect.

You should see the novel now in the online retailers available for pre-order. (The cover image may take a few days to appear in the online listings.) Stay tuned for a sneak peek at the back cover copy in the next week or so.

Auction supporting Kaslo and District Public Library

Monday, April 19th, 2021



I’m very happy to lend a hand to the Kaslo Library to support their fundraising auction.  I’m offering a Zoom talk. The auction website is here and I invite you to have a look – they have an impressive variety of items in their auction catalog. I have family who live in the Slocan Valley in British Columbia, not too far away from Kaslo. A truly beautiful part of the country. Thanks!
