Every author needs them and every author dreads them, but when I saw the review in the April 2016 edition of the Literary Review of Canada, I was delighted.

Cracked: How the telephone operators took on Canada's largest corporation and won! This is my third book but my first time writing history. I wrote the book as a result of going to a birthday party for one of the principal organizers mentioned in the book.  A number of the people involved in the campaign and strike were there and after food, cake and a few drinks, we reminisced about the events featured in Cracked.
