Two Lines & Some Photos

So I feel like mixing it up a bit. Here's ONE LINE pertaining to our booksONE LINE about whatever comes to mind, and A FEW PHOTOS thrown in because I love photography. Enjoy!

I'm excited to join the inspiring eight-time cancer survivor Dionne Warner and her wingman/husband Graham tomorrow at Relay For Life in Lumsden, Saskatchewan to hear Dionne speak and then we'll all sign our Never Leave Your Wingman books!

Dionne & Graham Warner arriving at Relay For Life in Yorkton, SK last year.

I love this photo I snapped quickly from the car while we were coming home from Yorkton last June:


We have a contest on our DriverWorks Ink Facebook page that you can enter before June 4th - if you live in Canada - where we're giving away a Running Of The Buffalo and a The Little Coat book to celebrate Father's Day.

I dislike dandelions. Immensely. (I know that's two sentences, but it's still one line. Stupid dandelions.)


I love many other non-pungent flowers, however, including African violets that grow for me (above) and the brilliant hibiscus (below) which remind me of my mother and her green thumb.



If you are a TEACHER or a LIBRARIAN in or near one of the following communities and would like us to visit and speak about our books this fall (at no cost to you) - please contact me: Portage la Prairie, Brandon, Winnipeg, Prince Albert, Tisdale, Yorkton, Saskatoon, Rosetown, Weyburn, Estevan, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Lloydminster. Email ddriver@sasktel.net with your ideas.

OK, that was more than one line - but we really want to hear from teachers and librarians as well as info about TRADE/CRAFT shows in those regions that we could attend... And I did throw in a few beautiful photos!


Shout out to Blondie's Gift and Garden Centre in Dunmore, Alberta - where the hibiscus above and the great signs below can be found!


This sign in particular made me smile. How often do we not recognize a sign when  it's in front of us?

It's raining here. I appreciate the rain's cleansing power... Less allergy problems and more greenery very soon!



I can hardly wait. Happy growing season, everyone!
