I just got home from the final leg of my Water War book tour, which began way back on Jan. 8. Since then, I've done dozens of writing workshops for thousands of students at over 30 schools across BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and (for the first time ever) Manitoba. It's been a tremendous experience with many great interactions along the way. My thanks to all the teachers, principals, librarians, and students who made me feel at home and made the workshops so enjoyable. I was consistently impressed with the level of talent I encountered and the quality of the ideas we developed together. I could spend the rest of my life just writing those stories.
However, now that I'm officially off the road for the season, it's time to buckle down and focus on my other writing work, including finishing up my new feature-length documentary, completing my first draft of "The Great Grain Elevator Incident" (book 4 of the Milligan Creek series), and prepping the third issue of "Meth: The Immortal" for release. Thankfully, I don't have any trips booked until the end of September, so I can finally settle down and get to work.
