I get around.
Ok, to be honest, I hardly ever leave the three kilometre radius around my house. Or my studio. Have I shown you my studio?
I work here:
Isn’t my space nice? I love it.
If you want to encounter me live… or at least in real time, here are some opportunities:
December 2018 — TEXT ME, CUPID LAUNCH PARTY! Happening EVERYWHERE.
Sat, Jan 19, 2018 – “The Organized Creative” Alexandra Writers’ Centre Society – YYC
This hands-on workshop will show you how to organize your days by realistically planning your year, and working backwards-and-forwards throughout the year to stay on track with your goals. You will also learn how to track and maximize your productivity cycles, use a process journal, value your lazy fallow periods, and use your procrastination to nurture inspiration.

Sat, Feb 2, 2019 – ROMANCE REVOLUTION – YYC – probably at Library, stay tuned
Sat, March 2 – ”Plotting As Process & Productivity/Sanity Tool” at the Alexandra Writers’ Centre Society – YYC
Want to write a novel in 15 minute chunks? It’s easy–so long as you have a road map and understand that writing is only part of the process. Drawing on the “dirty writing secrets” of productive romance and genre writers, this practical workshop demystifies plotting and presents it to writers as an ongoing process that begins the moment you get the idea for your novel, and continues throughout the writing and editing stages. Suitable for both beginners who are afraid of plotting and advanced, published authors who want to up their productivity game.
