What’s Coming Up?


We’re working on an invitation to the launch for Nix Minus One

in Halifax NS on Sunday afternoon, April 14

at the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia.


We hope to send it out this week.


And Pajama Press, my wonderful publishers,

have arranged, in cooperation with United Library Services,

that I attend the Children’s Literary Roundtable in Calgary on April 22.

Kenneth Oppel will be there, so that’s exciting.

I plan to visit some schools while I’m in Calgary,

and also Monkeyshines children’s bookstore.


We’re into March now – never my favourite month.

Dirty snow, grey days.

The photos below show my perennial garden after our last blizzard –

and the tulips that – I hope – will be blooming in May!

What is to come

End of Winter Snow
