Where's Jaspa?



Thanks to Rich’s heart surgery at the beginning of January, 2018 was a quieter year than originally planned, at least when it came to travel. Our cruise from Abu Dhabi to Singapore had to be pushed back to 2019, and for the first two months of the year Rich wasn’t even able to do book signings!

Fortunately, that’s all behind us now. In April, we drove down to Charlotte, North Carolina, for a friend’s wedding. In May, we made what has become our annual pilgrimage to the Indy 500 in Indianapolis. And over the summer, we showed not one, but two sets of friends around Southern Ontario, including a couple of places I’ve never been before.

In between, Rich got back on the promotional bandwagon, with school readings and signing events at bookstores across Ontario.

This autumn we travelled out to North America’s Pacific Northwest. After a few days in and around Anchorage and Seward in Alaska, we made on our way down the Inside Passage, to Vancouver and Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Along the way we encountered an abundance of sea, mountains, glaciers, wildlife and frontier towns. We took in some new places, like Independence Mine, Carcoss and Victoria, and also revisited some of the locations that feature in the upcoming Jaspa’s Journey 4: The Hermit of Kennecott.

Rich is currently spending all his weekends doing book signing events across Ontario.

He’s loving being back in bookstores. meeting new people and introducing them to Jaspa’s Journey. It’s particularly special when existing fans stop by to say ‘Hi’, or pick up a copy of The Pride of London or Jaspa’s Waterloo.

And with Jaspa’s Journey 3: Jaspa’s Waterloo now available, this is the perfect time to join Rich at an event near you. Check out my Meet The Author page for dates and locations, and come and get your signed copies of all three of the current Jaspa’s Journey books!

During the week Rich and I are busy editing the upcoming Jaspa’s Journey 4: The Hermit of Kennecott and writing Jaspa’s Journey 5: The Ses Collector of Venice.

In the meantime, follow exactly where Rich and I are via my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages.



Our plans for 2018 might have had to be toned down in the wake of Rich’s heart surgery, but 2019 is shaping up to be a classic.

Our first trip of the year will take us to Connecticut and New York City in February!

Then in March we’re finally off to Asia, on a cruise that will take us all the way from Abu Dhabi to Singapore, via Dubai, Oman, India, Sri Lanka and Thailand. And to a make it even more special, Rich will be celebrating his 50th birthday along the way!

In the autumn we’ll be back onboard a ship (our first time doing two cruises in a single year), sailing from Venice (Hooray!) to the Greek Islands.

And you can bet that’s just the beginning!

In between, I’ll be jetting all over Ontario with Rich, doing more book signings, of course! Check out my Meet The Author page for dates, locations, and more information.
