In my family, everyone always wanted to be the kid who gave Mom the best gift. Nice rendition of Mom’s face in uncooked pasta, glued to a paper plate. Ultra creepy.

Hey, I’ve got a couple suggestions for Mother’s Day, coming up on the weekend of May 12.

How about my book “I Am an Islander”? It’s got odd-but-true accounts of growing up in an Island family, and other forms of questionable PEI wisdom. Order it from this website for Mother’s Day at a special price of $22, mail delivery included. Offer good until Tuesday, May 7.

Even better, if you order the book from me, via this website, I’ll enter your name in a draw for a Mother’s Day Comedic Relief Package, at the beautiful Stanhope Beach Resort.

The draw will happen on May 7, and I’ll put your name in again for every book you buy. 3 books, 3 chances to win. This contest just for book-buyers on this site, so your chances are mathematically great.
Order “I Am an Islander” today– $22 including shipping.


Get Mom a copy of “I Am an Islander.” Get a chance at a overnight Mother’s Day package at Stanhope. Hey, do it before May 7. Be the best child ever.

On May 7, I’ll select one lucky book-buyers name, and you’ll be able to give your Mom an awesome get-away overnight for two, with a Saturday night comedy show from yours truly, extravagant brunch, and the breathtaking surroundings of Stanhope.

You could send her with Dad, or give the gift of a night away from Dad, or go yourself. Because at that point, you will be the favorite child. You know you will be.
