My novel in progress Designed for Love has an element of the effects on a small community when an industry arrives. I selected to write about the potash industry. Saskatchewan is home to one of the largest deposits of potash in the world. Grant Shaver, Senior Process Engineer at Mosiac Potash Belle Paine, the largest solution mine in the world, gave me a slide presentation and a tour of the facility. I had an opportunity to speak with the employees. When I told them I was a romance writer, they smiled and said, “potash and romance.”

I was so pleased to tour the production facility of this valuable resource in my own province. I’m proud of being part of a province that provides a product to help produce food and many other products all over the world.

All visitors must be in protective gear, which includes a hard hat, googles, ear plugs, the safety coveralls and safety boots.

Even though this year was my fastest 5 km walk in the Royal Road Race, I did come in last in my age group. I have been walking and also going to the Walking Endurance Class, therefore, I’m staying strong.
