Award Winning Children’s Book Author Diane Mae Robinson Featured On "Around The Region" On CITL-TV

Press release from: Diane Mae Robinson

Award winning Canadian author Diane Robinson recently appeared on ‘Around The Region’, an Alberta Canada television program that airs on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm on CITL-TV Bell 237 and Shaw 319. The show, hosted by Kahla Buchanan, features events and happenings around the Midwest and Lakeland regions in Alberta Canada. On the show Robinson discussed her award-winning book for children, 'Sir Princess Petra'.

Robinson has taken two major awards for her children’s book, 'Sir Princess Petra'. She was honored with the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Emerging Artists Award for Children's Book Author. She also took 2nd place in the Purple Dragonfly Book awards for Children's Chapter Book. In 2012 she was chosen as a finalist for '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'.

'Sir Princess Petra’, the first book in the Pen Pieyu adventures, is an engaging children's book that features surprising plot twists and turns, brilliant flashes of humor, zany characters and is rooted in timeless values that shine through the charismatic main character.

“It’s exciting promoting my first children’s chapter book in The Pen Pieyu Adventure series. The book has a great message for kids---To believe in yourself and follow your dreams.”

'Sir Princess Petra' is written in the tradition of C. S. Lewis and is reminiscent of 'Shrek'. Reviewers have labeled the award winning book a 'fantasy adventure that is sure to become a timeless classic.'

Robinson uses the dragon books concept as the background to teaching young people traditional values. Dragon books are one of the most popular segments of fantasy fiction and children's books in today's marketplace. In this fantasy fiction work, Ms. Robinson's highly praised work demonstrates that dragon books can be something much more than dragon books.

“I have always loved books with dragons in them, and I believe that dragon books are a great way to engage children in reading.”

Ms. Robinson is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at robinsond@mscnet.ca. More information, including reviews, information for teachers and librarians and a special children’s section is available at her website. 'Sir Princess Petra' is available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Tate Publishing. The "Around The Region" segments can be viewed in the 'news' section on her website.

Diane Mae Robinson has a journalism diploma from the Schools of Montreal, and an advanced diploma from the Institute of Children's Literature in Connecticut. She is also an artist, and teaches acrylic and watercolor art to children. She lives with her husband, Allen, in a small hilltop castle near St. Paul, Alberta. They have four dogs and three horses, along with a forest inhabited by gnomes, fairies, a princess, and a dragon. This magical forest is where Diane creates her characters and gets the inspiration for her stories.
