This month sees me engrossed in three quite different projects. The first is the rough draft of a YA novel, "Javier and the Temple of the Jaguar," a brand new genre for me. It was inspired by my trip to Chiapas and the Mayan ruins at Palenque in February. The second is the continuation of the composing and recording project of my song cycle for soprano Lilac Cana, while the third is the video for Lilac's 40th birthday celebrations at St Lawrence Centre for the Arts this September. Busy times!
