Join Gail for this writing retreat in the Shuswap region of South Central British Columbia, the landscape that has inspired so much of her writing.
The fall retreat runs September 30 to October 5, 2018 and is timed to coincide with the sockeye run on the Adams River, a natural wonder.
For details, please see the fall retreat web pages.
Gail's latest adult literacy learner novel, From Scratch, is now on the shelves.
Cookie is about to lose her job at the local bakery. She dreams of owning her own bakery but doesn't think she has the skills or money to do it. Most of all, she doesn't have the self-confidence. When she takes a course at the local college, she finds she has much more going for her than she imagined. With the help of her community, she figures out how to make sure no one has to go without her famous doily cookies for long!
Booklist—June 12, 2017
"Cookie's perseverance through hardship is certainly inspiring, and her bonds with the local community heartwarming. For readers who need a little encouragement, this is just the ticket."
