Linda DeMeulemeester featured in Vancouver Sun

Linda DeMeulemeester, author of the Silver Birch Award-winning children's fantasy The Secret of Grim Hill, was featured in a brief article in the Vancouver Sun on June 21 (the print version included a photograph):
Burnaby's Linda DeMeulemeester has scored big with her first book, The Secret of Grim Hill. Ontario children in Grades 3 to 6 voted the spooky school story their favourite work of fiction, awarding it a Silver Birch Award. It's also a Canadian Toy Testing Council pick -- another honour driven by readers' choice. DeMeulemeester loves writing for kids of 10 or 11 because that was the age at which reading came alive for her.

As well, Linda's Grim Hill books now have their own website.
