Hullo, world! The weather is starting to warm up, the cherry blossoms are starting to open up, and rain days are diminishing by the week...it’s starting to look like spring!

AH: 3 Habits to Write What You Love

Hullo, world! It’s my lucky day! (I know, when I’m happy, I go off into weird Jack Sparrow tandems.) Raincouver has taken a break, and the last three days have been sunny despite winter still raging, and I feel a hint of spring in the air… “And when he shakes his mane, we shall have… Continue reading AH: 3 Habits to Write What You Love

AH: Dreams, Goals + Plans for 2021

Happy New Year!  (Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu!) I can hardly believe that 2020, with all of its quirks and whirlwinds, is past us.

Author Health: Life…(I’m back from hitouts + Major Announcements)

Well, I’m back. I do so apologise that I dropped off the blog-sphere with but a few lines of an ominous message saying I’ll be “on a hitout”.  As I explained in that post, the end of July had been where everything seemed to have caught up with me.  So in today’s post, I’ll be… Continue reading Author Health: Life…(I’m back from hitouts + Major Announcements)

Author Health: Why Authors Need Families

Hullo, world! I am still under the weather, but I am out of bed, which is what counts! Despite the grey and oppressive sky we are under, there are still things to be thankful for. (e.g. crispy and juicy sausages for breakfast, the always heartfelt chocolate mini croissants with powdered sugar) And please don’t ask… Continue reading Author Health: Why Authors Need Families
