Eden Mills Writers Festival.
Eden Mills Writers Festival - September 9
I had the honour of being selected to read 'Fairy Castle in the West' at the EMWF on September 9, 2018. Despite shockingly cold weather, I had a warm audience at this outstanding celebration of Canadian authors. 'Fairy Castle' is chapter 8 in my book Caught Between the Walls, and it was published for sale at the festival. Many thanks to the organizers and volunteers - this was an incredible experience!
