Rachna is thrilled to see this book in print again with another Island press, and she readily admits to being as weird as ever. Rachna currently lives in Ottawa where she continues to plark – play, work and lark – at dreaming up stories. For more about Rachna, see her website: and her blog: rachnagilmore.blogspot.com
