I'm going to be reading at the launch of the latest issue of FreeFall (Winter 2012), in which I have a piece of creative nonfiction. Other readers include Juleta Severson-Baker, Barbara Parker and Naomi Lewis. That's 7 PM, Thursday, February 2 at Owl's Nest Books located at 815 49th Ave SW in Britannia Shopping Plaza. Good readings, good company, and wine and cheese! Come on out and enjoy.
Well, I suppose I can't let this ridiculously cold weather pass by without some comment. Especially now that I'm recovered from falling on my head on some ice last week. I mean, the temperature's been hanging around -29 all day. Really. I wish I was back in California. Maybe I'll have to set my next book there.
Over and out for now. Stay warm.

There's crazy, sleazy, wonderful Hollywood Boulevard on December 30th. Yeah, hard to believe with the snow swirling outside my window, that I was there a mere eleven days ago. We had a great time in Hollywood, Santa Monica, La Jolla and San Diego, though I have to say it didn't really seem all that much like Xmas. And now it's all beginning to seem like a long time ago.
So 2012 is in full swing already. Tonight it's back at my Creative Writing courses at Mount Royal University. I have non-fiction pieces out in the January / February edition of WestWord and the Winter 2012 edition of FreeFall. I'm looking ahead to a couple of readings in March -- one is Writing in the Works 5 and the other is a multi-author event at Shelf Life Books, more about which later. And I await word on my new novel.
Keeping the fingers crossed, as usual. Here's to a good 2012!
