Olds author writes about romance
The romance of the mountains sparked the latest novel by an Olds author.
Sandy Bexon was inspired to write Moving Mountains: Secrets, Romance and High Tea in the Canadian Rockies after hiking from the Chateau Lake Louise to the Lake Agnes Tea House. The beauty of that day simmered in her imagination for some 25 years until she finally sat down and wrote the story under her maiden name, Sandy Kelly.
Moving Mountains is described as a gentle, light-hearted tale about a journalist named Sam who is assigned to uncover the legend of an old magic woman who’s supposed to live in a cave in the wilderness. Sam is unexcited about this “fluff” assignment and annoyed when his efforts are thwarted by a “beautiful and fiercely protective tea house owner.”
The story twists and turns from there, leading to mystery and romance.
Bexon hopes her self-published story will be a pleasant afternoon’s diversion for readers, who love the mountain setting as much as she does. It contains colour illustrations by Jan Haugen.
The author, who works as communications officer for the Chinook’s Edge School Division, is selling Moving Mountains for $15 through gift shops and bookstores in the region. Part of the proceeds will go towards SAIT scholarships and bursaries.
