Thanks to Sean Cranbury for the photo.

Such an honour to be at the Mayor’s Arts Awards on October 11, and I’m thrilled that Bad Endings won the Vancouver Book Award! Congrats to all the nominees, and many thanks to the judging panel, and the City of Vancouver.

If I look a little nervous here, it’s because I was a little nervous! I didn’t have a speech prepared, but people tell me I did okay. 🙂
