New Book - Hawbear

So i started a blog and haven't posted anything yet. There is a good reason for that - and this is it! I have been working on a new book series with my mom Sheila McDermid. She is the author and I did the illustrations. Here is a sneak peak:

The story is the first of a series of books that we plan on doing for my hometown on Manitoulin Island. This first one is about taking a ride on the Chi-cheemaun, the actual boat you can take from Tobermory to Manitoulin Island... which is a great spot to vacation might i add - if you love swimming, hiking, fishing, camp fires or just sitting around working on your tan ;)

The books are being launched this weekend (may 16th) and will be available for sale then aswell.
If you are interested in a copy they are selling for $15 and you can contact me directly or Sheila @

I have to give a special thanks to my husband Dipesh for helping me out in the end due to a tight deadline - but after a few to many late nights we pulled it through! Go check out his blog over at -he's much more talented than me! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
