#Blogshare Special Feature – I Read Canadian Darlene Foster, D G Kaye, & Christy Birmingham #nowmorethanever #ireadcanadian @ireadcanadian – M J Mallon

Welcome to my regular Tuesday post. As my husband’s health condition is still ongoing and today marks his 10th day in hospital having a battery of tests, scans, and his upcoming biopsy, needless to say blogging has become a double-edged sword for me. I run to blogland for some semblance of sanity, but often I can’t concentrate as the final results will come later in the week. Many days my mind is so full of my worrisome future that I can’t even talk. Don’t want to talk. But I’ve been documenting the 10-day journey nightly. And once I get my husband home and put everything into my own digested perspective, I plan on sharing the journey here with you all – mostly likely in two or three parts, as it’s been a very long road, extra difficult in Covid times, as I’ve fought my way into being allowed to visit my husband. I’ll be sharing the journey next week.

But today as I get ready to dash out to hospital, I’m happy to share this wonderful article Marjorie Mallon posted on February 17th for #ireadcanadian day where Marje has featured a tribute to three Canadian authors, and I was elated to be one of  them.



Special Feature – I Read Canadian Darlene Foster, D G Kaye, & Christy Birmingham #nowmorethanever #ireadcanadian @ireadcanadian


Today, I am featuring three wonderful ladies from Canada, Debby Gies (D G Kaye,) Darlene Foster and Christy Birmingham. You might remember that in 2019 I travelled to Canada with my two daughters, Natasha and Georgina for a special girls’ trip! We visited Montreal and I absolutely loved it. Would love to go back one day.

So, I’ve chosen to go with a travel theme for the first two books I’m reading for #ireadcanadian

Debby, Darlene and Christy are all wonderfully inspiring, fantastic supporters of the writing and blogging community. As they say in Scotland, lovely lassies too!


Please visit Marje’s original post to read the lovely tribute she put together for myself, Darlene Foster, and Christy Birmingham. Canadian writers rock!

  6. Hi Debbie, I was advised by other bloggers my comments disappeared in spam folders or completely disappeared yesterday, so I will try again. You may end up with two comments. 🙂Debbie, Hugs and thinking about you during this challenging time very concerned about your husband’s health. Congratulations to be included as one of these lovely lassies on Margorie’s post. I do not often see Canadian writers grouped together on a blog and I am curious to read this article and read the future reviews. Take care.


    1. Thanks Erica for your lovely words, and for fighting the WordPress gremlins and trying again to leave a comment. It’s full moon crazy time and that’s when the blog usually acts up. I didn’t see any other comments from you, so I’m glad this one came through. Thank you. ❤

My prayers join the others for your husband’s condition to improve and you have him home again with you. In my thoughts, Debby xx


  9. Such a nice find, Debby, to see you featured as a prominent Canadian author abroad. 🙂 I’m sure it must have lifted your spirits as well, in these trying times. I so hope your hubby recovers as well as possible and can come home as soon as possible!!
