This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 2003 publication of my first novel, CHEESEBURGER SUBVERSIVE, by Thistledown Press

Ten books later (and with several more in the pipeline), I owe my entire writing career to the publication of this one, which (to my great surprise and delight) went on to be shortlisted for the Canadian Library Association’s Young Adult Book Award, the Ontario Library Association’s White Pine Award, and the Stellar Book Award.

I am forever grateful to Thistledown Press, to the organizations noted above, and to everyone who read CHEESEBURGER SUBVERSIVE, for helping put me on the path that I’m still travelling today.
