AB Negative

I’m so happy to have my short story included in AB Negative, an anthology of Alberta crime writing. The book will be available August 6th and featured at Calgary’s When Words Collide writing conference.

What a brilliant title and cover for crime stories by and about Albertans.

Stampede Parade

In this week’s post about author John Ballem’s story featuring the Stampede parade, Shaun Hunter makes a connection to a former Canadian prime minister. On Friday, I enjoyed the parade in shady comfort despite the heat. With a federal election coming up this fall, all the leaders of the major parties are in town. If any rode in the parade, I missed them.

Shaun Hunter’s post about Katherine Govier writing about Calgary makes me look forward to the sky ride at next week’s Calgary Stampede. While riding up high, I always enjoy counting the construction cranes.

Looking forward to the parade

Shaun Hunter’s post on writers writing about Calgary is, appropriately, about the Stampede parade that takes place here in two weeks. I’ll be there with my hat on – no boots yet.
