Blogger’s Block

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...

Becoming

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...

Touring and Cat Trees

The cat is screaming his head off for his afternoon walk-on-the-harness so I’m going to keep this brief (did I mention that J. and i brought a whole tree into our house just to try to keep him happy as an indoor cat? Here’s a picture 🙂 ). People are starting to send...

The Importance of Trees

This past Monday, I went to the Best Book Launch Ever for my friend Ariel Gordon’s book Treed: Walking in Canada’s Urban Forest. I laughed, I cried (thanks to Erna Buffie's beautiful, generous and true introduction). I ate tree, acorn, leaf cookies made by generous...

All Poetry (Most) Of the Time

Yesterday, one of my appreciated and admired ARC (advance reading copy) readers gave a sneak peek of my new novel to the Twitterverse, which shows a slightly earlier version of the (gorgeous!) cover. So, what better time to share a sneak peek! Soon, I'll do a full...
