Many of my stories were inspired by a specific person, animal, or event. Waiting for Snow is a bit different. I was reading lots of books about woodland animals and who doesn’t enjoy a good story about woodland animals. I thought I might enjoy writing one too. So, I came up with Badger and a variety of fun friends. In actuality, I penned three stories about Badger. As of today, Waiting for Snow is the only one that’s found a publisher. One is still making the editorial rounds with hope. And one is in the story file, perhaps to be resurrected in the future. I do love my impatient Badger stories, but those two Badger stories may have to be very patient, indeed.
This book is dedicated to my editor, Kate O’Sullivan, and illustrator, Renata Liwska, a dream editor and illustrator worth waiting for.
