|Juma and Zakiya from The Beggar's Dance|
Inspired by the characters in "The Beggar’s Dance." Zakiya holds Juma’s hand, and shows compassion, love and gives him hope. “You have to believe in yourself, Juma, break the cycle. Yes you can dream.”

The most I enjoyed this Holiday Season was making these three copper bracelets for gifts. I also loved cooking and spending time with my family. Now it’s time to get back to my writing and finishing my second novel (well at least the first draft). Thank you to year 2017.

|Whistler, British Columbia|
I will be attending Whistler Writers Festival next week from October 12th to 15th. I am thrilled The Beggar’s Dance is selected as one of the three finalists (fiction) in the Whistler Independent Book Awards. Wishing the finalists all the best.
I will be reading at the Whistler Public Library during Reading Event 1: Canada’s Best Independent Authors of 2017 on October 12th.
It will be a fun weekend, as the festival promises many reading events and workshops. I have booked a few to attend. I’m excited about Workshop 12: So, You Want to be a Screenwriter? I suppose all those movies that are in my head need to be explored.
Most of all, it will be great to meet so many talented writers.
