Discover Her Second Series
Hazel G is a story of self-invention and love and loss. The timeline of the story is from 1934 to 2016, hence there are a lot of historical facts mixed in with this work of fiction. The character’s story spans her lifetime from nine years old in an orphanage to ninety-one years, moving from Eldon Avenue, just off the Danforth in Toronto, Canada, to her little bungalow on Flintridge Road. She learned right then how to make lemonade from lemons.
The second book of the series. Summer 2022 release date.
It was 1966 in a small town in the heart of the Canadian Rockies when Reggie Delamere, age eleven, learns that washing dishes at the local restaurant means that he has some supper, with enough left over to take to school for lunch the next day.
At the age of sixteen, dressed in his new Canadian Armed Forces fatigues, Reggie is a few steps further along with his goal of becoming a somebody. And then, we find him at age 40, in a middle-aged crisis. He sets out for Toronto to find his foster mother and the only real home he has ever known. Little did he know this journey would include fathering two sons.
Frankie Delamere, Reggie’s son, is a wanna-be engineer just like his dad. He figured out early on that ladies-of all-ages like a boy in a cowboy hat and he knows how to work it.
Calvin, the baby, is born to be an artist. He was drawing women’s fashions from the get-go. He comes on to the dating scene leaning toward having as many boyfriends as he has girlfriends. He decides early on that there is no need to choose one gender over the other.
In spite of all their differences, the three Delamere boys patch up each other’s misadventures as best they can. Reggie watches his son Frankie take one fork in the road while Calvin chooses a different path altogether.
Prepare For Her Anthology
Sandra's first non-fiction book. Release date to be announced.
The anthology is in its beginning stages. Data collection is quite a process. When we add the care and attention that must be given to each individual woman’s story, there is simply no way to rush this non-fiction collaboration of the hopes, dreams and heartbreak of these particular women that have been or are currently incarcerated in Canada.
