Voice From The Valleys: Charitable Artwork

Jodie Renner spent her time and money putting together Voices From The Valleys. An anthology where all proceeds from book sales, after production expenses, go to Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders Canada (MSF).

I’m proud to say Deirdre Hunting Season, a funny story about a woman, a man, and a deer is the first story in the anthology (written by me 🙂 ). It’s followed by many other British Columbian authors who tell their tale about life in Canada’s western most province.

Thank you, Jodie, for the endless hours you put in gathering, editing, and producing this wonderful anthology.

STORIES & POEMS ABOUT LIFE IN BC’S INTERIOR, an anthology for charity, features entertaining short stories, fascinating memoirs, and thought-provoking poetry by 50 talented BC writers, depicting life in every region of the interior of British Columbia, Canada, from the ’50s to today.
Peruse the pages and you’ll find stories about challenging experiences in remote areas, experiences with BC’s deer, bears, moose, and other wildlife; harrowing experiences with forest fires, humorous people-watching stories, touching memoirs, tales of tragic incidents, stories about relationships, and funny-only-in-hindsight true stories.

You’ll find beautiful, thought-provoking poetry about early ranching life, rock climbing, a beloved motorcycle, the loss of orchards, prospecting, experiences with forest fires, encounters with wildlife, and special moments from various regions in BC.
Colour photos of various regions of BC enhance the print version of this high-quality memoir.

So if you’d like to support a great cause, Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders Canada (MSF), and have a great read, check out VOICES FROM THE VALLEYS.

Thanks for reading…

    1. Thanks, Roland! I know you’ll enjoy it! Please help us spread the word about this high-quality anthology for Doctors Without Borders! And we’d really love it if you could write a brief review (one sentence is fine) on Amazon. Enjoy the spring! 🙂


  1. Congratulations for thinking of telling people about “Voices From The Valleys” on your blog, and for contributing your story. I’m sitting here shaking my head, dismayed at myself for not thinking of this sooner. Gonna fix that! As a fellow contributor to Jodie Renner’s marvelous anthology, I going to share the news with the terrific followers of my blog, too. Duh! Thank you for the nudge, Kristina.

  2. Thanks, Kristina, for blogging about VOICES FROM THE VALLEYS – STORIES & POEMS ABOUT LIFE IN BC’S INTERIOR. I absolutely love your story, which is why it’s first in the anthology, among many other funny, poignant, and exciting stories about life in British Columbia. Yours story of inventive, hilarious revenge, “Deirdre Hunting Season,” had me laughing out loud! 🙂
