Writing Circle Wins!

It's been a very productive and successful week for fellow WCDR and writing circle members! 

Tom Taylor has just published his wonderful book, Brock's Agent, which is available at Chapters.  He has been touring historic sites, giving presentations and signings, and has some book signings at Chapters coming up.   Thanks for the credit in your forward, Tom!  It was my pleasure reading early drafts of the novel.  Brock's Agent was also reviewed in the Globe and Mail on Saturday, June 4, 2011.

Susan Croft and Mike Khashmanian are winners of the Scugog Arts Council's Literary Awards. For Alec's Girl and Switch, respectively.

It's a great time to be a writer in Durham Region!


  1. Congratulations to Tom, Susan and Michael for their great news. Sally, you too deserve to take a bow. I'm sure I speak for many but you have been the voice of encouragement, urging us all to reach higher.

  2. Thanks Cryssa! High praise coming from you. The work you produced at Sue Reynold's Saturday Sanctuary was so well received. The attention to detail and the tension between the characters was so palpable, but also subtle. Well done! For those interested, Sue's upcoming
