In February, I was pleased to be invited for an interview on Talking Kootenay Books (see below 🙂) to discuss my latest novel Butterflies in the System. As it was my first TV interview concerning my books, I have to admit my nerves were playing games as I prepared for it! Luckily I had nothing to worry about, as host Keith Powell (no relation) was an absolute pleasure to talk with and an excellent interviewer. It also helped that my motivation for writing Butterflies in the System trumped my nerves.
There is an urgent need for change in the youth protection system, and I wrote my book because I could no longer stay silent. I needed to be more than "a survivor". I needed to be a part of the solution. Creative writing is my forte, so helping to bring awareness to the problem through writing is my contribution to solving the problem.
Please show your support for change in the youth protection system by sharing my interview, where I discuss why change is so desperately needed. Thank you ❤️
Here's a blurb you can copy & paste when sharing my interview clip:
