The first novel I ever published, Shadow Song, is a history set in 1830s Upper Canada, painstakingly researched, representing close to a decade of writing. I am still proud of this novel. And I hope it’s one you will allow me to share with you while I’m setting about making a new knee work for me.
Generally, Shadow Song, was and still remains well-received by readers. What perhaps was the biggest kick for me was about 15 years ago when I was sitting in a rheumatologist’s office, and lo, there on a side table was a copy of Shadow Song. I kind of wanted to hold the book up and show the other people, point at the byline and myself, grin like an idiot. But propriety reigned, and I refrained.
I should warn you, however; if you’re a tender heart, read or listen to the novel with a box of tissues, because you’re going to need them.
You can send me an encouragement card in the form of a purchase of Shadow Song as a trade paperback, ebook, or audiobook. The audiobook is narrated by Susan J. Iannucci.
Thanks for your well-wishes!by
