    Hi, I had not ever heard your name before, just heard your answers to The Proust Questionnaire on the CBC’s The Next Chapter. I just loved all your answers, especially the swear words. That could be me and it makes me feel better about my own bad moods and impatience since the Covid pandemic. And the lying!
    I have just requested one of your books from my local library, thank goodness that some of them in large print since I’m developing cataracts. If I like your books I will recommend them to my monthly book club, we really need to read some new authors. Many thanks for being of of the people who can take me(us) out of our Covid fugue with your literature. Greetings from Guelph, ON
