"As one expects from Kluckner, the black and white drawings in the many panels are superb. A few larger ones, such as that of the Salmon Arm courthouse, can stand alone as works of art. This book is a fine introduction to both the themes of Romeo and Juliet and to the wartime story of Japanese Canadians."

“It just kind of came up on my radar,” Kluckner says of the graphic novel idea, a genre that has taken the publishing world by storm of late and appeals especially to younger readers.
Kluckner had been noodling a story idea that lent itself well to the notion of a fictional tale of Japanese Canadian internment in B.C., one that might best be told in 125 pages of drawings and cartoon-style narrative.
“The fascinating thing to me was, how much can you tell just with pictures and how little you need to tell with dialogue.”

“I started writing the book back in the ’90s,” said David. “I knew my father wasn’t going to be around forever, so I wanted to ask him about his career and life in hockey.”

Born to the Wild
And, an article in the International Game Warden Magazine....
"Born to the Wild (ISBN 9780994051806) is not a “game warden” book in the true sense of the word. It isn’t a book about chasing poachers, although there is some discussion about poachers and hunters in it. But that doesn’t matter one bit. This book is just pure gold. I absolutely loved it for a number of reasons."

WHITEWATER COOKS WITH PASSION
By Shelley Adams Alicon Holdings
This is the fourth book in the Whitewater Cooks series. The series began when Shelley Adams ran the Fresh Tracks Café at Whitewater Ski Resort in Nelson. Adams wrote the first cookbook in 2005 and hasn't stopped since. They've all been B.C. bestsellers and Whitewater Cooks With Passion, which focuses on fresh, healthy recipes, is no different.
