At the Saturday market in Penticton I often sit with other authors and that is enjoyable. But today was particularly enjoyable. I got to be with another children’s author–Karen Autio. She has just launched the last in her trilogy, titled Sabotage. I got to know her a bit, both personally and professionally and share stories about the joys and difficulties of writing and publishing books for young people. I need more of these times.

Thank-you Karen and thank-you Hooked-on-Books for making this possible.
