Aldergrove, February 20th

Friday night was party night at the big house. Artie made sure he was offside when PJ picked me up in the dirty white workman’s van. Three athletic young men hunkered down in the back. I didn’t know who they were or what they were, didn’t want to know and didn’t want them... Read more of this blog post »

Laurie Elizabeth Flynn Laurie Elizabeth Flynn's blog:

May has been a flurry of activity, to say the least. (Thankfully, no flurries outside… but touch wood, because in Canada, you never know.) I’m very grateful that I’ve been able to stay organized and on top of things, because otherwise something would have slipped through the cracks. The best part...

Hi Friends!

Here we are at the end of May with the summer upon us. Some of you will be at the beach, others traveling with family, many of you looking for an escape and a laugh or two. That is why International Chick Lit Month comes at the best time!

Hilary Mantel Hilary Mantel's blog:
"I made my theater flat on paper, because I am a novelist by trade. As soon as 'Wolf Hall' was published, there was an appetite to see it onstage. Flesh and blood actors would imitate the people who lived in my imagination. Would that, friends wondered, do violence to my inner world? In Stratford... Read more of this blog post »

Thanks for your question! I picture Kraeshia as a medieval-esque Dubai, so in my imagination they are more Middle-Eastern, but my descriptions are purposely vague to leave these decisions up to the individual readers. :)

I guess I’m on a game card streak. At least as far as titles go.


My quiet house was turned upside down this weekend. My daughter Emily, her husband, and my two grandkids came into town Friday night and stayed until Wednesday morning. Emily hadn’t met her niece yet so Matthew and his wife made an e...
