Canada 150 – New Short Story

Spring is here and my garden is leaping ahead as the weather finally warms. And where am I? I’m glued to my laptop, working away on a story about Canada, 150 years since Confederation.

It’s been a challenge, a group of writers who have committed to each compose a short story or novella about Canada illustrating an era sometime in the last 150 years of history. The interesting thing is we’ve all chosen a story that is quite different from the others, taking place in a separate place and time. With a country this big, and a history this long, it hasn’t been too difficult to do.

Given the different areas from the north, the eastern maritimes, the west coast, the prairies, the vast stretches of Upper and Lower Canada, there is a lot to choose from. With connections to French settlers, British immigrants, Russian contact in the north, the gold rush up the western mountains and into the Klondike, America along the southern border, the Doukhabors, Mennonites, Viking  explorers—there’s a huge choice.

It’s a stretch for me to step out like this, and also a lot of fun. One day soon, it will be available for your enjoyment.

April wishes, Free Book

Pinch and a punch, it’s the first of the month! My sisters used to catch me with that one when they could. Being younger, I wasn’t always aware when the new month began. So I got a good pinch and a punch.  Happy April.

What do I have planned for the month? Well, with Weapon of Tyrants, The Last War: Book Four just out, I’m promoting the Last War series. It’s been a lot of fun to write and I’ve enjoyed each book immensely. If you haven’t read any of them, start with Khandarken Rising, The Last War: Book One. Just sign up for my newsletter and download the book for free!

But seriously, each book reads independently and you’ll enjoy them in any order. Please click on the right side of the page, sign up and download!
