Shocker: Melanie gets spirited away!

In a horrifying development, my author, Melanie Jackson, has been kidnapped right out of her own back yard! Video coming soon -- convenient that we happened to be filming Melanie at the time, huh? Not so convenient that she'd promised me a hearty, deep-fried lunch at Memphis Blues on Commercial: now I'm hungry as well as horrified.

Anyhow, my tree-loving buddy Pantelli will be subbing for Melanie at the Vancouver Public Library launch of lotsa new books by BC children's authors, June 9, 1-3 pm. Including -- not to stop you in your tracks -- Shadows on the Train! Melanie belongs to CWILL (Children's Writers and Illustrators), which is organizing the event.

But, of course, since she's been KIDNAPPED, she won't be there; Pantelli will, in all his leafy glory.

Hey! Why don't you figure out where Melanie is? To find her location, try this Word Jumble out, if you dare ...

N.L. from Vancouver writes:

Our teacher read your book, The Spy in the Alley. You have written such a wonderful book. It was so exciting it made Harry Potter look bad because it was so exciting. I could not wait to finish the book.

How did you come up with such a good story; were you born a good writer? Why did you choose Vancouver for the setting?

Dear NL,

I'll reply for Melanie, since she's kidnapped. Thanks on her behalf: if only we had JK's millions. Think of all the French fries it'd buy. All the Judy Garland CDs!!!

The good story? Ahem. It IS about me, correct? And Vancouver? Is there any other city on the planet?

Yours Di-namically,
Dinah Galloway
