The Foothills Writers Group is having its annual book fair, featuring southern Alberta writers, at the Okotoks Public Library this Saturday, October 14, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

I’ll be sharing a table with Wendy Portfors and a number of my titles will be available, including my latest short story collection, A Little Strangeness.

If you’re in the area, drop by for a visit and a chance to do some early Christmas shopping!

Kathleen Turner on helium?

In my mind, I sound like Kathleen Turner. In reality, it turns out I sound like I’m high on helium. It always shocks me when I hear my recorded voice. If I was going to have such a high-pitched voice, couldn’t I have been a singer…?

Last week, Logan Coutts of Eagle 100.9 in Okotoks, Alberta, interviewed me and Laurie Carmichael as part of his series on Foothills writers. Laurie, a fine, fine writer, was representing the Foothills Writers Group. Logan is the charming, funny and welcoming host of the morning show on Eagle 100.9.

Here’s a link to the radio interview:
