Congratulations to Beyond-the-Lamppost student, Karen Harding. 20160413_123625Her short story Bill McBean, Tall and Lean was published in this month’s issue of Our Canada.

Karen’s story so captivated our writing group that we coaxed and cajoled her into transforming Bill McBean into a novel for middle-grade readers. The result – an exciting, action-packed story that will thrill young boys and girls, even as it takes us back into a time where lives were simpler and adventures joyful and fun.

Congratulations, Karen and we look forward to seeing the book, based on this short story, published soon.
