"Frank phoned."

"Frank phoned," my husband said one grey day last winter. Who? Frank Warkentin in my novel Consider the Sunflowers? Since when have imaginary characters phoned their authors? Actually it was Frank M. Tierney, a head honcho at Borealis Press, expressing interest in the novel. Nine months later it became a reality. I'm delighted to be published by this wise kind man. In February 2013 he received the well-deserved Order of Ontario.
