Annual Windflower Holiday Book Event


It’s time for the 9th Annual Windflower Holiday Book Event. For the last eight years I have been donating most of the profits from December book sales of Sgt. Windflower Mysteries to a worthy community cause. It’s a great way for me to give back a little to people and organizations who need so much, especially this time of year.

In the last eight years we have been able to donate over $5,000.00 to community groups who really need our support. We will be doing things a little different this year, so check out the information below as to how you can participate and help this great cause.

This year our chosen organization will again be the Minwaashin Lodge in Ottawa. Minwaashin Lodge is a healing centre in Ottawa that provides a range of programs and services to First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children who are survivors of domestic and other forms of violence, and who may also be suffering the effects of the residential school system.

The mission of Minwaashin Lodge is to provide wholistic programs and services for grandmothers, women, children and youth impacted by family violence and residential schooling. All programs and services are provided in the context of cultural beliefs and values as part of the healing journey.

Here’s how you can participate.

Make a Donation

I am making an upfront donation of $500.00 to Minwaashin Lodge. I know that this money will go to support First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children to have a good meal and presents from Santa under the tree on Christmas morning. If you want to make a donation please visit

Canadian donors can receive a tax receipt for their contribution.

Make a Donation and Get a Free Book

If you make a donation, I will send you or a person of your choice a signed copy of Christmas in Newfoundland: Memories and Mysteries, absolutely free of charge. Simply send me an email or FB message or comment below with the details of where you would like the book to go. And I will pop it in the mail. It’s that simple.

Thank you for supporting the Annual Windflower Holiday Book Event and Minwaashin Lodge

Buy a Book

Of course, you can support Sgt. Windflower Mysteries by buying a book. This year the latest releases are Buried Secrets and Safe Harbour. They are available in local bookstores in Ottawa like Perfect Books and Books on Beechwood and worldwide through Amazon.
