Hi everyone! Hope you didn’t forget about me. I haven’t written much on my blog lately – but that’s because…

I have been a very busy bee, preparing for the launch of my third book, Winter Moose Visits Alberta. The book was on my back-burner and I wanted to complete and publish it this year, but of course, things happen and now I am pushed to wrap things up in a short period of time.

Following up with my Chapters’ contacts has paid off – I will participate in a couple of in-store books events this coming March.

I will be posting more information soon on my website as well:


Reason for my push

Did I mention that I have two (yes, not one but TWO) book events scheduled at Chapters? I will be in person at the Chapters Newmarket on Saturday, March 16, 2019, and Chapters Markham (Woodbine/Highway 7) on Saturday, March 23, 2019. I will post details with address and time details once I submit my book for printing!

I am so excited! I thought what better opportunity to launch my third book than at my upcoming book events.

I hope you will be able to make at least one of the events. My sister, Juliann will also be promoting her book at the same time. Some come out and have some fun!

Happy Holidays!

More adventures of Winter Moose to follow in the New Year!


In this thing called life, we all need a break and time to reflect. I will take a short break from writing this blog for the holidays. So, let’s catch up in 2019!

As if! I am not really taking a break – but need some time to work on my upcoming books:

  1. Winter Moose visits Alberta
  2. A plant-based cookbook – with super easy yet healthy recipes


Follow your passions

I have so much passion for writing, illustrating and photography. All of the photos in my blog posts so far were taken by me, except for Tony Wong’s awesome celebrity photos.

What to look out for next year

Next year, I will share some tips about Adobe Illustrator. I absolutely love this program and use it almost every day. The graphics on some of my posts were created by myself in just a matter of seconds! For example, Bathroom 101, Dominion, etc.

Happy Holidays to all of you out there! And all the best in the 2019 year! – Monica
