"It’s only a week away!! Don’t forget the launch of my latest historical fiction novel, “Two Sams”, Saturday, April 13th at the Yarmouth County Museum and Archives from 2-4 pm. Read the good, the bad, the ugly and have a chuckle or two when you read about a father and son and their families and how they survived their journeys from New Jersey, to after their arrival in Shelburne. It is also available on Amazon and a few other sites. I will have copies on hand as will the museum.

Hope to see you at the launch.

"Two Sams" can be pre-ordered here.


Two Sams, based on historical documents and oral history, traces the journey of an African-Canadian family from colonial slavery, through the American Revolution, and on to the hardships of life as Black Loyalists in colonial Nova Scotia. Sam the father tells the story from the family's time in slavery, escape to freedom, and participation on the British side in the American War of Independence. After the war, when the family has moved to the British colony of Nova Scotia, Sam the son takes up the tale, when the Black Loyalists have to try to survive with little food, poor housing, few tools, and persistent white racism...." -Sharon
