I love this story of a young girl escaping Europe on the eve of the Second World War and finding refuge in Shanghai, China - a place that harboured 20,000 Jewish refugees during the war. Lily Toufar Lash, who I write about, now lives in Toronto. Enjoy!

Seven Secrets - the series

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

I am thrilled to let you know that I will be part of a new series called Seven Secrets. I am one of seven authors, each writing a book that is linked to the others. My fabulous and super-talented co-writers are Vicky Grant, Marthe Jocelyn, Norah McClintock, Teresa Toten, Kelly Armstrong, and (our one and only male), Eric Walters. It’s definitely the “Dream Team” of authors. The books will be out next year, published by Orca Books. But that’s about all I can tell you for now. Stay tuned for more “secrets”.

In the meantime, remember to check out my latest book, Shanghai Escape, published by Second Story Press and available in all bookstores and at
