Where in the World are the Goodmans and the Goose?

Fresh from a book event and television interview in York, I took a bit of a break from everyday life to go on a writing retreat.

This time, it was a trip to the town of Sainte-Adele in Quebec, Canada. While there in the mountains, the area got the heaviest snowfall of the year. Rushing riverside locale, steaming hot tubs and Finnish sauna, snow-topped evergreens blowing in the wind, a comfortable rocking chair next to a crackling fireplace … the perfect setting for writing a new childrens’ book set in a cold climate.

Nataliya is at work illustrating the new book, and a solid draft is completed. It may be a few years before the new book sees a book shelf, but in the meantime, there’s always our current book!

Flightless Goose is available for purchase now at www.RunGoose.com, Amazon.com, and at bookstores. Or, if you want it personally inscribed and autographed, feel free to shoot us an email at www.RunGoose.com.

Now … back to the work of writing in the real world.
