Thanks, Lori. I’m in the process of moving right now. As soon as I get settled, I’ll begin the long process (once again) of querying, submitting and occasionally begging. I’ll have to look into libraries and schools in my new town. They might have both and maybe even a small podium (it’s a small town and my voice might carry to the Tim Horton’s next door).

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
