New Beginnings

In 2019, I edited and published New Beginnings. It is a collection of creative writings from 39 local BC authors. All of the profits generated from the sale of this book are being donated to SHARE Family and Community Services. So far in 2020, we have donated $5000 to SHARE, and the TELUS Corporation has generously matched our donation.

This Christmas, SHARE needs our support more than ever. The book makes an ideal gift, serving as a unique opportunity to show support for BC writers, while assisting with fund-raising for an organization which does excellent and much-needed work in our community.

Book Description

Everyone has had a New Beginning at some time in their life: births and deaths, leaving home or creating a new one in a strange land, finding love for the first time, or losing it and starting over.

In this book you’ll find many ways humans, and animals, experience transition and change as told by BC writers who vary in age, background, gender, and religion.

What they have in common is their strength and ability to thrive during their New Beginnings.
