Who am I?
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Welcome to my world! Home town is in the most spectacular Ottawa Valley though I am fairly happily living, teaching and writing in the busy big city Calgary.
Thankfully the city offers wonderful green spaces for walking and hiking and the majestic Rocky mountains are but an hour away. I heard (or read) that if I went on a different hike in the area every day, I would barely get through any of the trails waiting to be explored. Lucky me!
Joseph Boyden The Orenda
Maybe the most important book I’ve read in years. A contender for the 2014 Canada Reads, tells the story of the Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and the Jesuit in the early period of French colonisation.
Louise Penny The Beautiful Mystery
My new favourite mystery writer – can’t wait to get my hands on the next Inspector Gamache novel, coming out in August 2013.
Loving the new Alabama Shakes album.
And my favourite dancing arms video
