This summer, I was thrilled to play a small role in the creation of this piece of Canadiana! In September 2014, Prince Edward Island hosted A Bold Vision Women’s Leadership Conference, where 23 female visionaries shared their visions for Canada’s future. As a legacy piece, the conference committee decided to publish an anthology of essays written by the visionaries.
I worked with the anthology committee to select e-book distributor, short run book printer and print-on-demand partners, consulted on printing and publishing issues, designed the e-book and print covers, designed the custom print interior, and created formatted ebook versions.

I truly feel blessed to have worked on Moving Dirt. This started as a family project…a gift for John Chisholm. It quickly morphed into a celebration of 50 years of Nova Construction, founded by Mr. Chisholm in 1964. When Mr. Chisholm passed away during the final edits for the book, it became a fitting tribute to an amazing man who built a great company.
We originally planned for the truck to be featured on the cover, but Mr. Chisholm decided he’d prefer a more ‘straight-forward’ cover, more like him. So, we made it the half-title page instead.
