The Backstory of this book to movie journey:

In The Beginning:
It was in September of 2011 about a month after our motherʼs memorial service in Oakville Ontario. Mary Margaret Herstad, known as “Margie”, passed at the early age of 73. I awoke in the middle of the night, got up, put on my housecoat and slippers, made my way down stairs to the dining room table. I opened my laptop to look at my motherʼs Facebook page. I perused the pictures and comments then I did something that started me on a fascinating journey which has blown my mind.

I typed and posted these words on Momʼs page: “A book will be published one day and a movie will be made of this very special and spiritual lady.” 

I am not sure why I wrote that statement. I never thought of myself as a writer. Sure, I have written some poetry at times but never thought I was capable of writing a book. I went back to bed and forgot about it.
