One of the ladies who lunch

Today, my publisher (Colleen MacMillan at Annick Press) is taking me and illustrator Steve Rolston out to lunch to celebrate the release of Seeing Red.

Colleen has an office in a shabby chic historical building. Sunlight floods in through big windows to land on shelves and shelves of books and a jumble of computers and manuscripts and work tables. It’s exactly as you might picture a publisher’s office. She also has a knack for choosing lovely lunch places.

So, this is all very glamorous. I plan on brushing my teeth for the occasion. Maybe even my hair.
