This book was published in 2002 and it’s been a delight to have such a response from readers. I’ve been working away on my next book, Listening for the Island, which links to Heave through the character of Fancy Mosher and will be published soon. My first young adult novel, Dead Time, will be published on January 2011 by Annick Press. Exciting times here on the dirt road in Nova Scotia!
