Powerhouse. March 2015

After doing a reading at the Sechelt Writer’s festival in August of 2014 from my last book, Base Camp. 40 Days on Everest, Charlene SanJenko approached me and offered to help raise funds for this indie film project, 500 Days in the Wild. This resulted in a sold out event in March of 2015 which raised $5000.00 for the film. Making a film is like giving birth to a child, except they take years, not months, to be born. And they take many midwives. Charlene and her friends of Powerhouse are the midwives of the west coast. Big gratitude for all you wonderful women.

    Are you kidding? This is a baby I was happy to take a miniscule part in helping birth. Can’t WAIT to see this film. I truly believe it will be a world-wide game changer. Stay safe.

    We are so grateful to you for doing this Dianne and believe me I look out my window every morning to see the beautiful North Shore Mountains and Howe Sound and every day I send you safe travels – I think the book will need to be a series.

    I was so inspired to hear you that evening, but felt like I just got a taste of who you are, that’s why I love following your blog now. Was cross country skiing today on Dakota Ridge today and thinking of you in New Brunswick. Wishing you wind at your back and sun on your face
