Close to finishing Orhan Pamuk’s fabulous novel Snow.

I gave it to my husband last Christmas while he unknowingly gave me A Strangeness in my Mind. So masterfully written, I’m loving it so much I actually sat out in the snow, reading for a few chapters (in Kirkwood not Kars) until the sun shone less brightly and the cold and damp seeped through my snow pants.

So sad to hear the tragic news in Turkey! Anyone who wants a nuanced and deeply human meditation on the social / political climate of this area should dip into his novels!

End of Spring as a Book Cover!

I am so delighted to announce that my painting End of Spring has been picked up by Doubleday Canada, an imprint of Penguin Random House Canada to grace the cover of best selling author Christy Ann Conlin’s new novel, The Memento, set to be published this spring 2016!

This is my first glimpse of the advance reader’s copy that will go out to get reviews and the like but already I’m so pleased with how it’s looks. I love the color reproduction and the font they’ve chosen……I can’t wait to hold it in my hans and read it over and over!

Closer to the publication date I will begin to share all the glorious details of how this came to be!
