Sharing a Shelf with a Hero

Maybe you’ve already heard the story of Alex Colville (iconic Canadian artist) opening my very first art show at Acadia University all those years ago…well, I never imagined then that our paintings would be sharing a bookshelf together as cover art one day…never in my wildest! 

Yet here they are, mine on Christy Ann Conlin‘s novel, The Memento and Colville’s on Nino Ricci‘s, Sleep, in Chapters Indigo bookstores Can Lit displays across Canada!  The rest of the company is not to shabby either – authors like Margaret Atwood, Yann Martel and Mona Awad. As if I needed another reason to go into a book store and look for Canadian Literature!
