As some of you may know (or noticed), this July 1st Canada celebrated its 150th anniversary. As a proud Canadian I was over the moon at being able to celebrate this milestone IN CANADA.
So much over the moon that I made the July installment of ITM all about my euphoria. One Five Oh is my love letter to Canada after my 5 year absence. It may not have been 150 years in the making, but I put my heart, my soul, and many, many hours into making this video. I truly hope you enjoy it. ^__^
It is so important to create and promote characters that positively portray the diverse range of identities reflected in our classrooms today. All children and young adults need to see themselves and hear their voices represented in the books and comics that they read, the games they play, and the TV shows and movies that they watch.
If you’re interested, Wyvern: Book One: The Coin by Kyle McGiverin is available to purchase through Amazon and at the Glad Day Bookshop in Toronto. Thank you for your support and understanding.
