Creative friends

We had a great visit from Norma Charles, the author of The Girl in the Backseat and Boxcar Kids, along with many other books.
It was neat to take her to visit other creative friends such as Deb Loughead, author of Time and Again and president of CANSCAIP.
We also made a point of breaking up Janet Wilson's day so that Norma could buy her cover painting from Janet.

Besides being a brilliant illustrator, Janet is a great grower of rhubarb and she sent us home with tons. Great friends and wonderful deserts, it doesn't get any better.

I adore the photo, Sylvia. Thanks for posting it.
It's a great souvenir of our visit to incredible Janet's studio. What an enormous talent she is! Her paintings blew me away. And I think her cover for Girl in the Backseat is one of her best.
