Aloha! I'll be meeting you for the first time at LCC Hawaii.

Thanks, Lillian. I see that you live in Niagara Falls. I've just bought a house in Prince Edward County. Scare the Light Away and Burden of Memory are set in Ontario, around Muskoka, and In the Shadow of the Glacier is set in B.C. Hope you get over that slump!

I look forward to getting your books.
I am finally getting around to reading Canadian authors. (I am Canadian)

Hi Vicki,

Nice page...love the kayak! I used to kayak a lot in the Dismal Swamp in Virginia, which is the setting for my first book.
I have an undeveloped idea I may pursue eventually, a crime novel set in Canada, so I may ask you someday for advice on setting! We love you Canucks down here in the U. S. of A. Happy Travels.

Just finished it! Took me longer to get to it than I planned but once I started I read the whole thing in a day. Vicki, I am so impressed! I knew from Scare the Light Away that you are a really good writer and do great characters, but this is so totally different and yet you retained all of your strong points. Molly is so well drawn and I adore John already and am hoping so much that the relationship with Molly and the RCMP (whose name I forget how to spell) develops more in the next book. I also very much liked the subjects dealt with in the book - from aging hippies (I can relate) to current environment issues to women in traditionally men's jobs and the problems they encounter. Not to mention stalkers and bike thieves. Anyway, bottom line - well done!

Hi Vicki -- book arrived today. Thanks! I have to finish the one I am reading now and read one for my book group and then I am free and clear and can get to it.

You know, I never saw bears until I went to northern BC and the Yukon and NW Territories. Then, it was like I saw them all the time. A grizzly ran out in front of us in Kananaskis. We saw another bear just off the highway, near Calgary. Also saw a pack of wolves near Banff. I guess there's something to the reality of humans encroaching more on the wild, and the animals being forced into populated areas. With bears, that's (of course) a scary situation. Wild animals are always unpredictable.

Believe it or not, I live in a village that has a skunk as its mascot, but my dogs haven't been sprayed. Yet.

I've been blogging a bit about my travels on Type M 4 Murder (http://typem4murder.blogspot.com) and putting some of the posts up on my Crimespace page. Check out the blog - it is a group effort with six mystery writers

Ouch on the back. Hope it heals up fast and nicely for you. My husband has trouble with his and it can get real nasty at times.

Hi Vicki!
Just back from vacation myself and am going to catch up on your travels via your blog. Hope all is well!

Finished it - a couple of days ago actually but needed to process some of it. Scares me to think how you could come up with this - excellent book. Passed it on to my daughter as it is the kind of thing she usually likes. Not really a mystery exactly is it? More almost a coming of age story only not with young folk. Some of it very much disturbed me yet it all fit and went together well - it was just not all easy to read. Okay - so in case you are not sure this is all a compliment. I think you are an excellent author, wrote a compelling book that is way beyond genre and I look forward to what you do next. Now I must go and tell JD what i thought of it

Hi Vicki,
Finally got a copy of Scare the Light Away and am about half way into it. Had to quit reading finally at three in the morning - eyes tend to not work so great after that. Anyway, I am very much enjoying it. Looking forward to finding your other book and especially to the new one coming out.

I think the best crime writing is coming out of Canada. Now I've found another author in you. Hurrah for crimespace.
My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…..it’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my page here on crimespace.

Hi Vicky,

JD is sending out Scare the Light Away for me this week so it will be a holiday read. Am looking forward to it.

Hi, Vicky - We met in the bar at Malice this year. I clicked over from your DL post to check out the dogs. Cute!
