Last week I had a lovely hour in Ms. Moran’s class at Elmdale School in Ottawa, Ontario.  Presenting on how I write and how a writer gets published was made easy by a lively and enthusiastic group of grades 5s and 6s.  Many thanks to each student, to their teacher and their school for giving me the opportunity.

If what I experienced in this classroom is an example of what’s going on in our schools today then we as a country are in great shape.
