I’m thrilled to share that I received the W.O. Mitchell Book Prize for Under Shifting Stars!
As I said in my acceptance speech, this book is close to my heart because my childhood home was flooded in the Calgary flood of 2013, and my family lost a lot of sentimental items. It was a cathartic experience to write about Audrey saving these items for her family. Audrey believes strongly in signs, so she’d think it’s meant to be that I received this award exactly 8 years after the flood in June. Thank you, Calgary!
