Congrats to my friend and colleague, Diana Walsh, on the occasion of the launch of her first book, Empty Cradle. Anyone who has lived in Burlington or Stoney Creek long enough to remember the Christmas kidnapping of a newborn infant from Joseph Brant's maternity ward will be interested in this poignant memoire, as will devotees of the true crime genre.
Diana has a natural talent for storytelling and as such has become a valued member of the Northshore Wordsmiths Writers Group, appreciated as much for her capable and insightful critique as for her generous heart. It is thrilling to note that Empty Cradle has already been listed at #5 on the Globe and Mail Best Sellers list. I look forward to Diana's launch tomorrow.
