Sophie to the Rescue!
I have a big, big, dragon-sized thank you to deliver today. It goes out to Sophie—one of my new young followers—and her marvelous mother, for their kindness and bravery.
Here’s what happened. Just a few days ago, during a book-signing event at the Chapters bookstore in South Calgary’s Chinook Shopping Mall, would-be thieves snuck off with one of the pewter-and-crystal wands from my display table. (Retail value: $240. Magical value: who can say?)
Sophie and her mother were at my table at the time of the theft. Recognizing what had happened, the intrepid pair dashed out into the mall after the thieves, to retrieve the wand. They succeeded! The wand was recovered, and I am so happy.
And, if that wasn’t quite enough for one day, Sophie even presented me with a beautiful painting she had made! Here it is:
Thanks, Sophie!! It’s beautiful! And for your help, I couldn’t thank you enough.
Happy reading and magical days,

Yes, indeed Heather. It was a pleasure and honor to meet Sophie and her mother and have them help me out.
