Genevieve Graham graduated from the University of Toronto in 1986 with a Bachelor of Music in Performance (playing the oboe). While on a ski vacation in Alberta, she met her future husband in a chairlift lineup and subsequently moved to Calgary to be with him. They have recently settled in a small, peaceful town in Nova Scotia with their two beautiful daughters.

Writing became an essential part of Genevieve’s life a few years ago, when she began to write her debut novel, Under the Same Sky. The companion novel, Sound of the Heart, will be in stores May 1, 2012.

Hi Aislynn! Thanks so much for having me back on your site! Not only are you a terrific host, but you're a terrific CANADIAN host, which somehow makes it even sweeter to be here!

So … as you know, I'm in a massive blog tour right now (www.GenevieveGraham.com/blog-tour.html), so I've been writing guest blogs and interviews for a while now. I thought I might do a little something special today.

I've made book trailers before - Under the Same Sky:



and Sound of the Heart:



but I'd only ever seen other people's personal movies. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this. It's a little peek inside my house.



Grand Prize on the book tour is ...

A signed copy of Sound of the Heart PLUS a four cd set of relaxation cds created by my incredibly talented musical friends, Cori Ashley and Ed Franks.



I'll give you a little insight into why I chose these cds as my prize - I'm NOT saying Sound of the Heart is about relaxing … considering the wild adventures Dougal's in for, I doubt he was too relaxed! But Dougal has a gift, similar to his brother's gift. He can relax his mind and hear the thoughts of other men, but he can also sink into his thoughts and hear the sounds and voices of his loved ones as if they were right there with him. These cds were created to help you escape the stress and craziness of your days. Grab a cup of tea or glass of wine (your preference!), light a candle, maybe slip in to a bubble-bath, and listen to the sound of your heart.

  5. I love the cover images for the CDs. They already LOOK relaxing. Speaking of relaxing that's the part of the day I like most. When all is quiet and I can snuggle up with a good book :)

  7. I agree the covers are so tranquil looking. I love nothing more then relaxing at the end of a stressful day. Sinking into a warm and scented tub is heaven to me. :)
