Welcome to my Blog
The first time James McCann visited Finn Slough in Richmond, BC, he knew he’d found something special.
“It felt like I’d gone back in time,” he says of the almost 150-year-old fishing settlement. “This place inspired my next book.”
Finn Slough, a series of wooden houses on stilts built over a slough on the Fraser River in Richmond BC, is a rich community of artists and long term residents. McCann was welcomed by one resident on a rainy afternoon for a tour of the private residents’ area when he was researching his book.
“I was standing on the bridge looking over the Slough as the rain started falling. Two swans were swimming towards the river and the sun was breaking through the clouds over the houses. Then one of the residents was returning home from grocery shopping when I asked if I could have a tour. He was so happy to show me around and offer me a history of the place. I knew then that my instincts were right: this place needed to be my next book.”
