    Are you doing a signing in New Brunswick? Perhaps Saint John? We love you here too!

      Thank you…that’s so sweet. At this point I’m not doing New Brunswick…that is almost a separate adventure in itself. Perhaps I’ll be able to do it in one fell swoop at some point. I’ll tell Nimbus!

    Hi Lesley,
    My name is Kim and I live in Winnipeg and I have to say I really enjoyed reading Kin this Christmas break. It felt like going home again, I could imagine the smell of the salt air, the wild flowers and even the summer nights. Your characters were so simple and yet had so much depth. I especially loved the witt of your female characters totally Cape Breton women. I even made your bread recipe on Christmas Eve and people liked it!! Thanks again Kim Kennedy-Follette ( Bay girl from Bay St.)

      Hi Kim,
      I’m glad I could bring back a bit of Cape Breton to you for the holidays. And I’m amazed you made the bread! I haven’t done it in a dog’s age because I know my efforts don’t taste like hers. Thank you for writing. Happy New Year!

    Hi Leslie,
    My name is Kelly MacLeod and my sister, Deanne, and I read ‘Kin’ over the holidays too! We both absolutely loved it. Our father grew up in Louisbourg and spent his summers in a bungalow on the Mira. We were very close to our Nana and Papa MacLeod and spent a lot of our childhood visiting them in Cape Breton. They passed away in 1999 but we still miss them terribly. My mother is from Sydney and her parents are from Cape Breton too. They are 92 years old now. I couldn’t put ‘Kin’ down once I started reading….your characters are so real and you describe their experiences so beautifully. I could identify with so much of the book that it became an incredibly emotional journey as I remembered the many stories of my own kin and my own experiences in Cape Breton, as well as my experience as a mom who has felt the loss of a child. At times I was laughing out loud and then at others, I was reading your words through a stream of tears. You have an incredible gift as a writer and I wanted to thank you for writing a novel that truly captures the magic, joy and saddness that comes with being a part of the circle of life. ‘Kin’ was the perfect holiday read! I can’t wait to read another one of your books 🙂 All the best for 2013!

      Hi Kelly,

      I can’t believe I’m only seeing your lovely email now. Shows how long it’s been since I’ve been on my own site! I’m really happy you and your sister enjoyed the book. It was very sweet of you to get in touch. It’s always a thrill to hear from readers.
      My mother loved Louisbourg, so I’ve heard lots of stories. I only live 25 minutes from Louisbourg as it happens. I’m glad it brought back your childhood for you.
      Thanks again for getting in touch and I’m sorry it took me so long to answer you!!

    Hey Lesley,

    I was recommended your book ‘Ava Comes Home’ by some family and friends. They read the book, and in the beginning of the book they were quite shocked at how much it sounded like MY life, they all told me I needed to read it. Mind you, I’m not a famous actress but there are a lot of things that I can relate to; I’m from Glace Bay, I moved to Hollywood (in 2005, still living there now), I spent 6 years away from home ( instead of 10 like Ava), I had to go home because my mother was dying (she died the day after I arrived in GB), Aunt Vi (I have an ‘Aunt Bee’), The boyfriend I left in GB…. etc.. Heck, even the girl on the cover looks like me, hehe…
    As the story unfolded things were quite different from my life but it was definitely quite interesting to read, especially for me!! Reading some of the descriptions, I almost felt like I was home again. I will definitely be checking out your other books. Whenever my husband sees the book lying around, he’ll joke and say ‘Angie Comes Home’. 🙂

  10. It’s hard to come by educated people for this topic, however,
    you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
