Canadian Women Writers Rock!

Of course so do writers of any other country, but as a vast country with a small population, Canadian writers, with the exception of a couple of icons (Margaret Atwood and Alice Munro immediately jump to mind), aren't as well known as they ought to be. Because of that, I've started a new blog: CanLit Rocks. This isn't a blog devoted exclusively to women writers, but it's my blog, and given what I read and what I write, the blog roll… Continue

What Hungers Waits in Silence, Bidding (Poem)

I participated in a Twitter poetry jam last week. The poem I've posted today is made up primarily of the lines I tweeted that night, with a few new words and lines for transitions. I've included audio of the poem.

Wash the Blood Clean from My Hand, by Fred Vargas

A small newspaper article puts Commissaire Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg back on the trail of a serial killer he’s been tracking for thirty years. The killer’s M.O. is unmistakeable: a knock on the head and three puncture wounds in a row, equally spaced and equally deep. No one by Adamsberg even accepts that the murders are related since the killer always provides a fall guy: someone too drunk to remember his actions and conveniently holding the ostensible murder weapon. One of those fall guys was…

Day 17 - Flux by Orson Scott Card

Just finished this and my thoughts are: Excellent! Wish I'd known there was going to be a little author's note about each story. They were all grouped together at the end of the book but I'd have liked to read them directly after finishing each story. Also: what did I study in college? Literature? Why weren't we reading THIS? Sci-fi is not lit? I think it is. Also, it's the most open field for new authors, which most lit. majors wanted to be. Authors, that is, not necessarily sci-fi… Continue

Courage in the face of a lion

“The root of the word courage is cor – the Latin word for heart. In one of its earliest forms, the word courage had a very different definition that it does today. Courage originally meant ‘To speak one’s mind by telling one’s heart.’” – Brené Brown


A few nights ago, I dreamt of a warrior, wearing a long red cloak and carrying a spear in his hand. He was in the middle of a field, hunting a lioness. The warrior came upon the lioness and eventually restrained and…

Transitions in Time

Seems like the first part of September I do everything possible to keep summer going. Hunt the farm stands for blackberries and corn. Leave a bathing suit and towel in the car for an afternoon swim in the nearby lake. Stay up too late trying to spot a firefly. You know, just unable to let summer go... and then the change begins... the shift from a green green world to kaleidoscope bursts of red, yellow and orange, popping from lingering sunflowers to the maple-trees’ top.  …

I just responded to a request for board members at "the nature of words" in a town where I'm doing a poetry trail. As I live a ways away (I like how that looks, those words together), I was instead invited to be on the advisory board. What fun!

After the Revolution published in The Linnet's Wings today

This story combines history from the American Revolution with an entertaining mystery, both romantic and metaphysical.  Funny that it took an English editor to get the themes.

Neoshamanism: A Call to the Western Animistic Soul

"As Western neoshamans, we think we're alone because we've resurrected a path whose roots we can't truly know and don't understand, yet we somehow know that we're on the path. In reality, every path branches to some obscure trail..."

Low-Tech Writer Hits the Road


August marked the beginning of the Ocotillo Dreams book tour. I don’t have an agent or a big publishing house to send me on a 30-city book tour, but I’m a determined person of the…

Haugh Haugh I am walking on street of gold

Did you know Jesus Christ done saved my soul

I’m swinging up here on golden stairs

And on my mind there is not even a care

So State of Georgia the jokes on you

Those pearly gates I just went through

Having blessed drinks with Father Abraham

Told Mother Mary thank you mam

I asked her to tell Jesus to please pray for me

And I praise God that I am free

No Judgment (Or, How to Be Nice to Yourself)

As my book release date approaches, reviews and magazine articles are trickling in, and my self-flogging skills are at their finest. It’s totally terrifying to put yourself out there, whether you’ve written a book, recorded an album, or pitched a new marketing plan at work. You take the plunge, and then, if you’re anything like me, you sit and tap your fingers on the table with a stunned expression on your face, akin to the one I have when I watch a trapeze artist – I’m enthralled, but my…
