I jumped at the chance to give a talk to our local Literary Club about Prince Edward Island. A huge fan of the writing of Lucy Maud Montgomery, I have always wanted to go where most of her stories take place. Enjoy this short video of the beautiful island.

Prince Edward Island

*Interesting fact. Since the Nova Scotia station was closed, the Cape Bear Marconi station in Prince Edward Island was the first in Canada to recieve the Titanic distress call.

Where have YOU always wanted to go, and why?

I'm really surprised that The Roar of Love by The Second Chapter of Acts didn't make a rousing comeback when the Narnia movies came out. One of my favorite albums from the 70s is the musical background inspiration for my upcoming novel, Washout Express. It's not the Narnia story, or the correct time period, but the spirit and message that drives my story. "He brings healing, He brings love.." Hope you enjoy this  clip. I need to figure out how to post audio clips here.

The Roar of Love

What music inspires you?
