Upcoming events

I'll be reading at the Cathedral Village Festival in Regina on Saturday May 25, 2013 at 12:00 in the Literary Tent.

The Writers Union of Canada conference is usually the same time as the fabulous and fun Cathedral Festival so I'm really happy that this year I get to participate in both!

Vertigo Reading Series
at Crave Restaurant in Regina, November 26, 2012

with David Sealy, Coby Stephenson, and Peggy Worrell
Just in time for Christmas shopping - Coby has a new book of short fiction Violet Quesnel out and my novel To the Edge of the Sea just won the First Book Award at the Sask Book Awards in April. Dave Sealy's play. The Bob Shivery Show was this year's season opener for the Lunch Box Theatre in Calgary. Peggy's writing is gripping, visceral, and humourous.
Come out and enjoy a glass of wine and sample Crave’s lovely appetizers.
