On Saturday, I drove up to Indigo Guelph in Guelph, Ontario.  Indigo — especially this store — has been so welcoming to me since the The War Beneath came out in 2018.

When I was a teenager, I read a lot of 1950s Science Fiction. It was the tail end of the “Golden Age of Science Fiction.” Asimov, Pohl, Heinlein, del Rey and more. I fell in love with the genre because of those books. They sparked my imagination and took me to fascinating locations in futuristic settings. The stakes were always huge. It’s those books that really taught me how important YA Science Fiction is. Readers get hooked on the genre early; it’s what happened to me.

My First Book Signing in Ages

My First Book Signing in Ages

On Sunday, I made the long voyage to Indigo/Chapters London North in London, Ontario for a book signing to promote my newest books, Fatal Depth and An Island of Light.  I say this tongue in cheek, because the store is in the same city in which I live:  London, Ontario.  Usually I’m driving hours to a signing … this time, it was only twenty minutes.  It was heaven.

SFcrowsnest Reviews An Island of Light!

It’s a strong writeup and the reviewer, Kelly Jensen, recognizes the contradiction in the book’s title.  As the first line of the review states, it’s the darkest chapter yet.  I’m very proud of this novel.  At my recent book signing, I described it as a “gripping prison break … and the prison is underwater.”  That phrase seemed to resonate with readers.
