A Stellar List! (thrilled to have sqeaked onto it!)

As you all know (and by you all I mean all 12 of you who follow my blog), I don’t blog often—in fact, rarely would be ambitious. Each time I’m sure I have something really interesting to say, I write it down and then it doesn’t seem so interesting after all...

But today, is different! Today I'm thrilled to announce that Ghost Ride has been shortlisted for the Red Maple Award by the Ontario Library Association. I can't tell you how surprised and excited I was when I received the news. It's such an honour--especially given that the list is brimming with stellar novels by these awesome authors:

Wounded, by Eric Walters














The Summoning, by Kelley Armstrong



























Only in the Movies, by William Bell














Not Suitable for Family Viewing, by Vicki Grant














Nieve, by Terry Griggs


























A Spy in the House, Ying S. Lee













My thanks to OLA and huge congratulations to all of you! I'm so proud that my little ol' GHOST is going to RIDE alongside you!
