Last week, staff and students at a local autism school sent me almost two dozen ‘Get Well’ homemade cards and letters! When I opened the box, I was floored- literally!
Obviously, my ongoing health concerns have caused delays in publishing our comic books. Rest assured that I am getting quality treatment, and hope to be myself again soon. When I am capable, I will be visiting this school and students. I want kids to celebrate my latest international award (Children’s Literature, Canada) WITH me, and take some ownership in the experience. I never sought to become a writing role-model to anyone, but seems like I cannot avoid this heavy responsibility.
Please be patient with me, and with yourselves.
