My new baby is now out!

I’m off to Ontario dark and early tomorrow morning to take part in the Sudbury literary festival, Wordstock, so Hallowe’en is a bit of a non-event for me this year (other than wine time with J. accompanied by rec room horror movie watching along with equally as...
For the past little while I’ve had a wicked case of blogger’s block. Maybe it’s because I’m prioritizing book news and upcoming events in my desire to get my book out to as many readers as possible (not to mention to see some familiar faces and friends both old and...
It's been fabulous seeing This Has Nothing To Do With You make its way out into the world. People have been sending me telegraphs as my book-baby drops safely into their homes (which I LOVE). A few have also posted reviews on Goodreads and Amazon (which I also love...
Praise from clients
Lauren is a wonderful coach! She was always supportive, insightful and ready with just the right readings and resources. These days, the fact that I’ve committed to keeping my writing time [when faced with childcare challenges], rather than just throwing up my hands and losing steam (as has happened in the past) says a lot about how far I’ve come in the two months I’ve been with her! I really *feel* like a writer who is actively engaged in her practice! I am so excited about what is to come, and I’m so grateful for all she’s done to help me along the way!
I’m writing regularly on my own stuff now. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for 20+ years, but I’ve always had reasons why I couldn’t keep it up: the year-end is due; I have freelance writing deadlines; I have a 10+ item list of admin tasks; I’m a Mom; I’m busy! Lauren, very patiently, supportively, and non-judgmentally, gave me resources that spoke to my situation, put up a mirror to my “crazies”, and encouraged me to kick them down one by one. It was quite a journey, and I’m eternally grateful!
