A Tribute to a Young Woman

One of my readers, Michelle, has asked me to tell you about a memorial service for a young woman from my town who was murdered a year ago. If you live in the area north of Toronto, please offer your support.

Here's what she said to me:

"Since you work at the Economist you must be aware of the beautiful young lady that was murdered in York Region last year - Brenda Healey... They posted a memorial for her in the paper for March 8th which is also International Women's Day. Just wondered if you could post or mention it on your blog for all those who are able to come and support this family. You and yours suffered such a great loss last year and I am sure you can understand why the more people that show the more support the family will feel."

Here is a link to the local news story with the details about the service.
Here is a more recent article from the newspaper I work for.

I'm waiting for my newspaper to come through with the profile/article, then I'll schedule the signing. I had a nice chat with the events manager.

My new novel is an e-book only for the time being. I hope they sell the print rights.

However, I'll look forward to meeting you!
