I've made it!

You know you’ve made the big time when your name appears as a clue in the crossword of a national newspaper. (Okay, so it had to be The Post.) The clue to No. 7 Down on April 30 was “Canadian Children’s author Stinson” 5 letters. That’s me! So I decided it was time to start a blog. (I wonder if anyone will read it.)

      Hi Mahtab. It appears that you were the first person to comment on my blog when I started it back in 2007, AND that I didn’t know enough to respond!? My belated apologies! I hope you are notified that at last I have. I’ve learned at least that much about blogging since then, and hopefully more, and I hope you’ll check out my latest.
      Happy writing!
