"Very moody with beautiful natural lighting. This picture almost looks like a painting. Expression of people on the picture tell us about simplicity of their life, far away from bustling city life. It was a pleasure to look at it." ~ Boris Spremo
News flash from Fredericton, NB, where Bruce is attending the TMAC (Travel Media Association of Canada) annual conference – and where he has just won the 2011 Photography Award in the People category. This entry is a shot he took at the Fortress of Louisbourg in Nova Scotia. Bruce has been honoured many times for his photography, but I know that he particularly loves this image, so it will be a double pleasure for him to receive this recognition.
Laurie took to the airwaves yesterday in an interview with CBC Radio West host Rebecca Zandbergen. She was delighted to meet the person behind the voice of her afternoon drive and grateful for the opportunity to highlight the theme of her latest Taylor Kerrick Mystery Bear of a Honeymoon - the impact of habitat loss on British Columbia's bear population. You can hear the entire interview on the CBC radio website. Bear of a Honeymoon is set in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley.
It's taken a few months while I worked on everybody else's books, but yesterday I finally did it - published Bear of a Honeymoon on Amazon Kindle Books. It went live today. Bear is the second book in my Taylor Kerrick mystery series (following Ivory Express). Set in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley, it deals with a wildlife issue that I find horrendous and about which I want to raise awareness. You can take a sneak peak before you lay out your $2.99.
