My Gran bought me this book when I turned 25. Everything about this was so her—she saw mention of something relevant in the paper, clipped it, and was sure to follow up, in this case buying the book, knowing “her Katie” would appreciate it. She even included a bookmark made from a scrap of the old wallpaper at the Lake Simcoe farmhouse where we spent summers growing up. I own no greater #prizedbookishpossession than this. Gran thought of me as an author back before anyone else did, always encouraging me to write stories, even when I was quite young. She believed in me from the start. And I know if I ever find a home for my books, she’ll nod knowingly from wherever she is, having never had a doubt.
