I love a good graveyard, don't you? The older ones, with the stones so weather beaten and worn that you can barely make out who lies beneath. Just wow. I could spend hours just meandering between the old stones. There is a certain magic about the stories that lie in their quiet tombs. These … Continue reading Buried Stories
Hello Lovelies! I want to talk about adding a little hygge magic to the daily round.

Hello Lovelies! It's been a busy week for me. I spent last week getting the house ready for my book launch brunch. Very little writing happened (still more than I had planned, so that's a win!) but the house feels really good now. Here's the thing: Cleaning isn't always a priority for me.

This was a hobbit-hole, and that means good food, a warm hearth, and all the comforts of home." ~Old Bilbo Hello Lovelies! You know, I think hobbits are hygge experts, too. I … Continue reading Lessons from Tolkien
She looks pretty good for her age, doesn't she? Hello Lovelies! First and foremost, let me wish you a very Happy Canada Day! That's right, we're 151 years young. By comparison with the countries some of our forefathers came from, that's the blink of an eye, but nevertheless we are 'True North, Strong and Free.' … Continue reading Happy 151st, Canada!
Hello Lovelies! A special midweek post announcing the blessed event: My book is published and available from fine Amazon websites near you.
Hello Lovelies! Ever wondered what it's like to be a writer? I'm learning lots about the whole process, but there's a joke that goes around that says something to the effect of a writer will clean your whole house to avoid editing. I don't know about that, but I will putter and potter away at … Continue reading Writing Life
Hello Lovelies! I've been musing about the place I'm at right now. For one, I'm mere days away from publishing The Moose, the Murder, and the Single Malt, which I am very excited to accomplish. This is a long-held goal for me, even though it took me a long time to admit it out loud. By … Continue reading Let’s Make the Best of It
