My End of Decade List

The publication of (A) Deadly Fall started and ended the past decade of my writing career

For January on the BWL Author Blog. I talk about five changes in my writing life during the past decade, from January 2010 to January 2020.

Happy New Year

New year’s is a time of wrap-ups for the year we’re leaving. It’s also the season for the best-of-the-year  competitions. My publisher suggested we enter our 2019 novels in the 22nd Annual Critters’ Readers Poll. As winners of the People’s Choice TV awards always say, it means the most to be chosen by the people rather than the critics or those with a vested interest in who wins.

People's Choice Awards 2019

I entered To Catch a Fox in the Critters’ Novels (All other genres) published in 2019 category. Voting is easy. Click the circle for your favourite book, then fill in the next few boxes and submit. I’d love it you want to help my book find new readers.

My very best to you for a happy and healthy 2020, sprinkled with new adventures.

A Jane Austen Christmas

I don’t always write a Christmas-theme post for my December 12th blog on the BWL website, but here it is today.

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Can novels set in Canada find readers?

My post today on the BWL Author BlogSpot was inspired by my recent presentation for Alberta Culture Days at the Pincher Creek library, where I spoke about my experiences of setting novels in Alberta – and elsewhere.
