New Release: Tragic Links

Tragic Links, my fourth book in the Canadian disaster series published by Ronsdale Press, has just been released. Featuring Jolene and Michael, this time in Quebec visiting their maternal grandmother while their father delves into the Quebec Bridge collapse of 1907, Tragic Links tells the story of the bridge collapse as well as the Laurier Palace Theatre Fire that changed the laws of Quebec for many years. Tragic Links is available at bookstores throughout Canada and online.

Upcoming Publications

 Tragic Links, the fourth book in my series of Canadian Catastrophes, will be released in the spring of 2009 by Ronsdale Press. Join Jolene and Michael as they visit Montreal and Quebec City, and learn first-hand about two of Quebec’s most fascinating tragedies – the collapse of the Quebec City Bridge in 1907 and the Laurier Palace Theatre Fire in 1927. Stay tuned for more dates and details as they become available.
