Judging Books by their Covers

While browsing my online library catalogue, this book caught my eye: It captured me not because of its great reviews but because I could have sworn it was in my TBR pile with a different name. I searched through the pile and found this: Ah yes. Not quite the same book. Extremely similar cover, completely different book. Apparently, this […]

Canadian Literary Short Fiction Markets (R-Z)

Here is the last instalment of my favourite Can-lit journals aka short story markets. NB: These are not ALL the magazines out there in our northern land. This is my personal list of lit-mags that publish the kind of short fiction I read and write, and for which I’m eligible to submit. (So you won’t find […]

All Good Children go to Heaven (or at least to paperback and Booktrack editions)

A couple of cool things have happened this fall with my 2011 teen novel, All Good Children. First, All Good Children is now available in paperback! Orca Book Publishers has produced a gorgeous paperback version of the book. It’s blue, it’s ominous, it’s a keeper. Check it out in their Fall 2016 catalogue:   So now […]

Friday Fable: The Novelist and the Literary Journal that Paid $30

You may know the old story, “The Angler and the Little Fish:” An angler spent all morning casting and reeling in the hot sun, dreaming about the bucketload of trout and walleye he might catch, how delicious they’d taste fried in butter, how his wife would welcome him home with kisses, how his neighbours would gossip about his […]

What are you Writing Now?

I went to Laurentian Regional High School yesterday and spoke with Secondary I and II (Grade 7 and 8) students who’d been reading my novel, All Good Children, in class. The students were great audiences: attentive, informed and enthusiastic. They sent me a long list of questions in advance of my visit, and I tried to incorporate my […]

Friday Fable: Belling Oprah

You may know the old story, “Belling the Cat:” One day the house mice grew sick and tired of losing their loved ones to the house cat, so they held a council to discuss the problem. Some said this and some said that, and eventually a young mouse rose to its hind feet and shouted: “The […]
