Hello everyone! I'm new to this group, and just joined She Writes this past summer. I'm a novelist from the Thousand Islands region of eastern Ontario, working up the nerve to try to publish my first novel after five years of intensive work. Joining a group of women writers seemed like a warm and safe place to exit the writing bunker, particularly as I'm new to the world of social networking. I've posted a bit about myself in the above Introductions thread in case you're wondering "Who is this chick?" Looking forward to meeting you, and thrilled to be among my fellow countryfolk!

Dropping by She Writes to check on my fellow Canadians. I hope everyone is doing well. Anything to celebrate? My third book, Love's Games, came out in September.

To celebrate this milestones, from August 10-September 9, I am hosting a powerful blog series on my website called Liminal Spaces: Women's Stories of Transition - with some inspiriting guest posts throughout the month! Check it out here.

I got the cover art for my fantasy novel Almost Adept. It's rather pretty, I think. The novel is scheduled for release in January from Burst/Champagne. Take a look.

Hello Canadian She-Writers. I haven't posted here in a long time but wanted to let you know about a new Canadian literary magazine about mothering and motherhood. Understorey Magazine will launch next month! I'm now in the process of soliciting writers and artists, and gathering readers. Please see our pre-launch page here: http://signup.understoreymagazine.ca/, our FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/understoreymag, and Twitter here: https://twitter.com/understoreymag. Thank you! Katherine

Why Grammar Matters

I recently began watching "The Wire" (yes, I realize I'm 12 years late), and I love it! So far it has lived up to the hype. It also gave me a good idea for this blog post. In one of the early episodes, one of the main characters (a police officer)…See More
