A new and exciting year

Glass_Door_Coffeehouse_JAN_2014
2014 is here and I have a feeling it’s going to be another interesting and exciting year! To kick things off, I submitted my draft of Polar Winds: A Century of Flying the North to my editor over at Dundurn, and we’re on track to release it this fall (stay tuned for updates).

Time to get back into my WWII-era novel, Chasing Skies, that has been on the backburner these past two years… looking forward to reconnecting with Sally, Alex and the crew, and travel back to England vicariously through them – even if it’s at a time of war.

I’m also looking forward to teaching here in Edmonton, giving talks at various conferences, and taking part in great events like the Glass Door Coffee House series. I’ll be reading my poems from the 40 Below anthology on Thursday, January 30 @ 7-9pm along with other talented writers, Dolly Dennis, Robin Young, Jannie Edwards, and Jennifer Quist. We’ll also have music from Trevor Duplessis, and host Theresa Wynn will keep us all in line. It’s free, there’s lots of great food and wine to be had, and it’s a warm and welcoming open mic if you’d like to read, sing, or perform.

Hope to see you soon, and until then – happy researching and writing!
