A site that does more

It’s finally time to update this site to do more – with my next series of books.

Pickles vs the Zombies will be coming out in the fall of 2019 with DCB Publishing, and I will need a place to update you all on its progress!

The next Portia Adams book is moving into adult territory, and was picked up by Cormorant Books, currently set to be published in the spring of 2020.

So, time to update this site to incorporate more than [just] Portia and her friends. Stand by for some pretty wicked introductions to Pickles and her fellowship of marvellous mammals.

CBC Radio column: Talking Animals

Here I am chatting with Gill Deacon, the host of CBC’s Here and Now, about my favourite Talking Animal books:
