I had the pleasure of meeting fellow Canadian, Nadine Dajani, this summer in Atlanta after corresponding with her a few times and discovering a strange connection… Not only are we both accountants turned fiction writers, we have a connection through the Cayman bank she works (worked now, I think). No, I’m not filthy rich and I’ve never laundered money through the Caymans. The connection is through a past job of mine. My former employer is a (very ligitimate and totally above board) client of said Cayman bank.
Nadine’s first book FASHIONABLY LATE is coming out in June 2007 from Forge books. I, for one, can’t wait to read it. It’s set partially in Montreal and partially in Cuba and the heroine is a Lebanese Canadian. What could be more interesting than that? Those critics who say chick lit is all about rich white American women should do a little research!
Anyway, perhaps I should get around to the point of this post?
Nadine just launched her website and is running a great contest all week via her blog to celebrate. Check it out!
