What is your favourite New Brunswick book, and why?

The Sea Captain's Wife by Beth Powning.

When I was a kid I loved animal stories, and my favourite N.B. book was Red Fox by Sir Charles G.D. Roberts.

What do you consider to be the highlight of your career so far?

So far the highlight of my writing career was when I got a call from Nimbus telling me that they wanted to publish my book.
