Big news from Becka!
My first book, The Tale of Rebekah Joy: A Summer Carol, is available for sale!

The Tale of Rebekah Joy: A Summer CarolIt is my life's story told as a fairy tale. "This is exactly the sort of tale which will connect with many people," writes my cousin, Janelle Thiessen van Esch, "because it explores the universal experience of being in a difficult place and longing for better days. The journey that Becka takes us on is one of vulnerability and faith. She examines the ties that bind one life stage to another, and how dreams and imagination can influence all areas of our lives. It is a true story, but with a touch of fairy tale wonder which flows so naturally from the context that it never seems to require a suspension of disbelief. ... [It is] a testimony to the triumph of faith and joy."
- from Becka

$12 apiece directly from me. It will be launched officially on Sunday, July 10th, at Smythe Street Cathedral during the morning service: 10:00AM.

As well, it is available on Amazon with a search for my name, and directly from the CreateSpace eStore: https://www.createspace.com/6263053

The American Foundation for the Blind's Career Connect program, with which I've been a mentor for the last three years, has just started a new blog/series entitled, "Where Are They Now?" whose posts follow up from mentors' original "Our Stories" pieces, written when mentors first come on bord. Well, I am delighted to unveil its very first post, which is mine! I am truly honoured that they chose me as their first mentor for the series. My thanks go out to Katy Lewis, for all her tireless efforts with this post. Check it out here:
