Meanwhile, what’s up for 2016? Some writing, I hope, and more readings. Here are two upcoming events:
The Lorenzo Reading Series, University of New Brunswick, Saint John, 7:00pm April 7, 2016, and an author’s talk at the Women’s Art Association in Toronto, May 11, 2016.
New short-story collection coming in Fall 2017 from Nimbus/Vagrant!
Books Start Here! I’m thrilled to be working with Nimbus on this new collection of twelve stories. Each has Nova Scotia at its heart, exploring how people come and go from the home place to negotiate their larger world–whether that world exists in the imagination or on another continent. Some consider Nova Scotia to be insular and static. But for my characters it’s a location always on the edge–a dynamic, universal edge. It’s the edge that keeps us alive and awake, seeking the ever-shifting happy place in between restlessness and ease, too much ease–between what to one may be a haven and to another, a trap.
