I was so thrilled today, on Thanksgiving no less, that Valentino hit the Best Seller list on Amazon today. The writing of Valentino was a real journey, 10 years in the making. The research that went into this books was endless – Haida culture, heritage gardening, the geography of Jedidiah Island, stories about Will, the horse that got left behind, and survival stories of the West Coast. I was also able to fulfill a promise I made to my friend, Maddie, who is now a young lady with an incredible spirit and love of life.
Thank you to all who purchased and read, Valentino, and to the folks who left such heartwarming reviews. You have also touched my heart.
