Researching the islands of our Great Lakes

For my upcoming book, 
I delved into the history of the islands and uncovered some fascinating stories.

The photo below is of Christy Anne Morrison, one of only two survivors from the sinking of the Asia, a ferry making a route to Manitoulin Island in the fall of 1882.

And this second photo is of the famous diving horse that entertained crowds by plunging 40 feet into the waters around Toronto Island.

These are just two of the fascinating stories I explore in my upcoming book.
It will be available to select indie bookstores this May, then everywhere in June.

Please check out my schedule of speaking engagements in the sidebar here. I am still adding events, so check back to see if I'll be coming to your town.

I hope to see you along the way!
