Talking with Valerie Ellis of Our Everyday Parables

November 17, 2022

It was a real pleasure to chat with Valerie Ellis of Our Everyday Parables.

Writing books is a fairly solitary pursuit, but promoting them is certainly not. Without the hospitality and enthusiasm of bloggers and educators and instagrammers, it would be much more difficult to reach the people who might be interested in my work.

Valerie invited me specifically to talk about my latest book, Here: The Dot We Call Home, and a seasonal favourite, Look! A Child’s Guide to Advent and Christmas. But we also talked about my journey to becoming an author, what the season of Advent is all about, the significance of being both descendants and ancestors, and more.
