Hi Joss, I'm so sorry I didn't see this question until today when there was another one.
I actually don't live in Vancouver - but on Vancouver Island in a place called Qualicum Beach. I'm glad you like Edmonton. I have a nephew who moved there a few years ago and they are loving it too.
I'm sure you'll find a group of authors there - especially in the city. Try Googling RWA Chapter and see if that helps (Romance Writers of America). Let me know if you find anyone.
As for starting a local group, we did it a few years ago. First we went to the library and put up a sign for the first meeting. Usually, the public library will let you use their meeting rooms for free to a non-profit group - especially writers and book lovers. I think 4 people showed up to the first meeting. Then all of us put it on Facebook and in the local newspaper and it just blossomed from there. We now have over 45 members.
So good luck with you're group.
Take care,

My Cheeky Angel (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: Annie Hynes is a tomboy. Naïve and love-starved, she’ll soon to be celebrating her big 3-0. Something needs to be done! Celi, her ‘down-to-earth’ guardian angel appears to help kick-start Annie’s big change—her looks, her job, her whole life. By taking a managerial position with a sophisticated shoe manufacturer, Annie becomes embroiled with her new associates and hooked on the power of big business. Unfortunately, her exhaustion from overwork forces her to ignore old friends, and her lapse places someone she cares about in terrible danger. Social Worker, Tyler Jones, previously hurt in two relationships, signals disinterest in women, and only wants Annie in his life as a good buddy. Oh yeah! And to help with his mixed-up street kids. Perversely, once her life alters, he misses her like hell. In one sweet night of loving everything changes. But, due to an overabundance of nightcaps, she doesn’t remember the night he can’t forget.
Together Again (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: Together Again--4th in the Vicarage Bench Series -- To be released May 11, 2011 from The Wild Rose Press Traveling forward in time, Dani Howard's spirit becomes magically united with reporter, Troy Brennan. He's everything a girl could want in a man, and during their time together, she falls deeply in love. Though she must return to her own body, she gains his promise to come to her birthday party in seven days time where they will meet in person and continue their romance. Troy can't believe he's fallen for a sixteen-year-old spirit invader. He's so infatuated that when renowned author, beautiful Ellie Ward, comes on to him, as attractive as he finds her, he's honor bound to stay true to his young love—or is he?
We're One (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: We're One--Out now from The Wild Rose Press 2008 Crystal was a celebrated Vegas star with a strong affinity to the animal world—except for the human male animal, that is. When she uses her trusty baseball bat to change the odds for easygoing Ashley Parks, getting beaten in an alley below her apartment window, the two end up having to run for their lives from a killer who wants revenge. Ashley’s first kiss arouses her and all she wants is for him to do it again and more - but no strings. All he wants is strings - and to keep her safe. Her reaction to his chivalry..."You bungling idiot!!!? Everything's changed. It's you he’s after now.”
He's Her (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: He's Her--Out Now from The Wild Rose Press! 2008 One minute a casino owner from Vegas, Rhett Parks, was relaxing on a bench in a small English town. To his dismay, a young woman interrupted his sanctuary. A minute later, his body was out cold on the ground and he was taking up residence inside the intruder, schoolteacher Carrie Temple — and without her permission. Her first words, "Get out," didn't solve anything because he had no idea of how he "got in." During the next few weeks they fought each other, taught each other, and began to love each other, not an easy accomplishment considering the situation, but doable, as Rhett proved to sweet, naïve Carrie. They became involved with strange Dr. Andrews, who assured them he had the answers to solve their problem, but Rhett’s brother Ashley, to whom they turned for help, was absolutely certain that the man they were putting their faith in was a charlatan and a quack.
She's Me (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: She's Me--Out Now from The Wild Rose Press! 2007 A spoilt model, Jenna Mc Brade, sits on a bench in 2007, pricks her finger on a rose bush and gets transported back to 1963 England to inhabit the body of chubby Lucy McGillicuddy. As her spiritual roommate, Jenna’s cynicism forces Lucy to adhere to a model’s lifestyle of sparse eating and physical exercise. Lucy’s body changes, becoming svelte and beautiful. Conversely, Lucy's kindhearted, generous spirit leaves a lasting impression on the temperamental fashion plate who exists inside her. Lucy loves knowledgeable Dr. John, who has plans to help Jenna return to her own body. Jenna’s Business Manager Jake assists and mistakenly shifts into Dr John. Now the four spirits are vying over two bodies. Meanwhile, Jenna realizes an attraction for Jake, who’s very endearing, and she falls madly in love with him. While you giggle over their antics, these four characters will steal your heart.

Mimi Barbour Thanks for the suggestions Caroline. I'll get them loaded onto my Kindle and read them real soon. I've had to steal reading time lately as I started and finished a full-length Christmas story for my Vicarage Bench series in two months. It was difficult but I'm glad it's finished. Hope it'll get published this year.

Caroline Clemmons Mimi, if you haven't read them already, you would love these: THE HELP by Kathryn Stockette, WEDNESDAY'S SISTERS by Goodreads author Meg Waite Clayton, THE VITAL PRINCIPLE by Amy Corwin.
