Hiking Season

Hiking to Crowfoot Pass on the Icefields Parkway, Alberta

Today on the BWL Author Insider Blog I write about hiking and how it appears in my three novels.

My Library Story

Check out my library story featured on the Calgary Public Library website. It’s on the right hand side of the home page. You might need to scroll down.

At our June potluck social, my book club chooses our books for the next season.

In the interview, I talk about my book club, which meets monthly at Fish Creek Library. The club has become an important part of my life, since my move to Calgary in 1996.

A Taste of Local Authors

I seem to be amused by this scene

Looking forward to tonight’s reading with eight other authors at Owl’s Nest Bookstore. I plan to read from the scene in a fictional Owl’s Nest in my novel, To Catch a Fox. As an homage to both Owl’s Nest and my friend, Pamela McDowell, I call my bookstore Ospreys, after Pam’s acclaimed children’s book Ospreys in Danger.

Writing Conferences

Ladies in red at the 2017 WWC banquet with roaring 20s theme.

Today, on the Books We Love Insider Blog, I talk about Wordbridge and When Words Collide, two big writing events in Alberta.

Recalling my book launch
