I am very pleased to announce my new book OOPS! Missed That Turn Again!, subtitled: And Other Funny Stories from My Past. As you can guess from the title, this is an anthology of funny, silly, interesting, and poignant stories from my life. These are all true stories, but I have saved many red faces by changing all the names, except mine, of course.
This was a fun book to write, albeit a three-month effort. It’s what has kept me quiet on the site and everywhere else. What amazes me most about creating this book, is how much I was able to remember from way, way, way back! I couldn’t believe I still remembered the school cheer!
The book cover image is very appropriate. It’s a photo of a lone vehicle negotiating the dunes of the Namib Desert, in Namibia, Africa. I had the opportunity of driving through the Namib Desert while visiting Namibia back in 2001. I experienced first-hand what it’s like to be caught in a sandstorm. It was frightening! It’s also in Namibia that I “missed that turn again” several times, getting myself, and my companion, hopelessly lost in what I was told was a dangerous place!
I hope you have as much fun reading it as I had writing it!
This book, as with all my titles, is published by Raw Sienna Press, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan Canada, and is available as a Print On Demand book, on Blurb.ca.
