It may be Friday the 13th but it is a lucky day for me. My latest book, Where Mountains Meet the Sea, An Illustrated History of the District of North Vancouver, has gone to press. Now the waiting for final printed copies begins.

The book commemorates the 125th anniversary of the District and was commissioned by the museum. As always the gang at Harbour Publishing have been a pleasure to work with.

I'll be giving an illustrated talk based on the book in late June. Watch this space for details.
