I wasn't always a writer. When I was young, I was a Reader. I read everything I could get my hands on. When I first learnt to read in Grade one, I was so excited, I rushed home and taught my little brother, Bryan to read too. Now he loves books as much as I do. When we moved to BC, we discovered the Public Library in New Westminster. Our parents would drop us off on Saturdays so we could read to our hearts content. Paradise!

Norma Charles My new book is here!! I picked up my copies of LAST CHANCE ISLAND along with a bunch of book marks from Ronsdale. And it's gorgeous!! I LOVE the cover, looks serious and intriguing. And the heft of the book... great! Thanks to Ron Hatch at Ronsdale for a terrific job. He even included triskelions at each chapter heading.
Now we're planning a launch sometime in April, I hope.
Watch this space for the announcement.
