In case you’ve wondered what’s been going on, I’ve moved all my blogging to Broadsheet360. It’s become too tricky to manage two blogs, a magazine and work on the new mystery series. Thanks for spending all these years with me. I hope you’ll check out Broadsheet360.

I’ve been remiss in any writing updates as of late so here’s one big ol’ purge: First, the Vancouver Voice, where I write my column Couv’ Connections, is venturing into subscriptions. Now instead of grabbing a copy of the Voice at your favorite coffee shop, it will arrive nicely bundled in your mailbox for a [...]
Okay before I dive into this post I’ll readily admit that I love a good plan. That’s not to say that I can’t succumb to my free-spirited Gemini tendencies either. But, ask my friends and family–they’ll lament over the fact that I email them early in July to confirm holiday plans. They’ve deemed these moments ”planning [...]
