"Mayne Island Aliens" brings back memories of my first years in High School. There were three Japanese girls in my class, and I shared a locker with one of them - P. K. When the war broke out with Japan, the girls were first of all interned in Vancouver, and then went further inland, P. ending up in Calgary with relatives. They used to write me letters, and as Class President, I used to read them to the class, until one day one of the girls complained we shouldn't be reading these letters, as they were our enemy. So I discontinued sharing them with the class, however continued exchanging letters for quite some time. Eventually, we lost touch with each other, but I often think of them.

Hi Kim, You can send them to my home address or bring them with you this summer. I'll be having my book launch at Miners Bay Books on July 11th. Let me know which you'd prefer, and I'll give you my address if you want it.

Hi Amber, I bought my daughter your book, 'Magda's Mayne Island Mystery' while we were on Mayne a couple summers ago, and she loved it so much she did a novel study on it for school. She also did an adorable diorama. So, I read the book too, and I just loved it!! Thanks!

Amber, you're amazing! Writing two books at once and maintaining a website too! Not to mention all the other things you do. I'll bet you don't have any problem getting to sleep at night. Well, do it while you're young, as my father-in-law always used to say.

Good afternoon. Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. I am from Canada and too bad know English, give true I wrote the following sentence: "There are some other things besides the bulb and the can that shape the light pattern."
With best wishes ;-), Mirra.

Hi Amber, We're here at Lansdowne this morning and Susannah just told me about your new book. She saw it in Quadra Elementary's library. This is exciting news! Not only are you a song writer, but a book writer too. Congratulations! We will obtain a copy for Lansdowne very soon.

Best wishes for the new year.

Pat M. writes: Magda's Mayne Island Mystery is a wonderful, thought-provoking story; for adults, too! It is special not only for the emotions, activities and thoughts, but for the sharing of the special "pieces" of nature on Mayne.
Jane T. says: "Whew!! I just read Magda. It was so suspenseful I had to read fast."

Wayne T. says: "It's exactly the sort of adventure I loved to read when I was a child."
Ingrid M. says: "Shows a deep understanding of the psychology of a young girl dealing with the deaths of her father and brother and the moral dilemmas and mixed loyalties she experiences."
Leanne D. says: What do you do when your "so-called best friends" invade your privacy and ridicule what you hold dear? Well, if you're Magda you embark on an adventure that calls on your cunning and requires your bravery. Magda's Mayne Island Mystery was a page turning adventure that I throughly enjoyed.
Renee O. says: "It is simply, perfectly, exquisite, every word of it."
Laurel R. says: "I'll be looking forward to the following adventures."
