White Space Wins!

Great news! I'm honored that The White Space Between has won The 2009 Canadian Jewish Book Award for Fiction. I'll be attending the awards ceremony in Toronto on May 25th and look forward to meeting the other authors, the jury, as well as spending time with the wonderful team of women at my publisher,Second Story Press.

Although one can't count on honors in this business of writing fiction, it is a lovely validation when it happens. What matters most is that readers find my books and that they are moved and connect with the characters and their stories.

I'm grateful.

See you in Toronto!

Mazel Tov, Ami! Y Felicidades! Like I always say, cream rises; and your book continues to do so. This is a great honor for you and your book, a memorable tale which makes me feel I'm walking the streets of Montreal along the canal, history drifting all around. Happy spring!
