Author Discussion and Booksigning with Helaine Dufoe
Saturday, January 28, 2017
"Wordz, Whiskerz and Wrinklez" is a collection of inspirational short stories with pictures by author and noted musician, Helaine Dufoe. Overcoming many obstacles in her life, Lainie is inspired to write stories to aid others through encouragement and faith development. An author of five other books about her faith, trials, and overcoming many adversarial life events, she continues to write and encourage others with her stories.
“I received ‘instruction’ to write this book after a strange experience with an old music box/planter earlier this year. This ‘Music Box’ story is the last one in the book for that reason.
I received further instruction to have the book published and give the proceeds from the sales of the book to charity.
It appears that lately I’m drawn to working for the ‘homeless’ in our world – and specifically for our local Elgin Street Mission and/or the Blue Door Soup Kitchen.
So, unless I hear differently – that is where any proceeds from sales of the book will go.”
This is Lainie’s third visit to Paragraphs and we welcome her back with her most recent book.
Helaine was born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, and lived in Sudbury, Ontario since 1967. She studied keyboard at an early age, and music covered her whole life. The keyboard became a lifelong vocation for her in playing Catholic Church organs for almost 50 years. She started writing books in 2005 as a result of a prophetic dream – this book is her latest creation.
