A Writer at Any Age

    Because my release day fell on my birthday, I’ve already written a little about writing and age. One of the best things about writing, I believe, is that you can do it at any age. It belongs to you at any age. As long as you want to put words on paper, you can, although how you approach it might change. How it affects you, and what it…

Little Egg and Big Egg

Friday, May 10, 2019

      There aren’t a lot of Easter eggs in The Dream Peddler, but I can think of a couple of things that most readers wouldn’t pick up on—they’re just there for me, or for anyone who happens to have the specific knowledge you would require to get my meaning. The first is a small thing having to do with naming. I had a really hard time getting through…

Maybe You CAN Take the City out of the Girl

The first thing that seems to influence me is being Canadian. I have a penchant for describing long,…

Friday, April 26, 2019
