1.) What are you working on?
I’m currently working on edits for Guardian, a YA novel about a girl being haunted by the ghost of the boy of bullied her.
2.) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I actually don’t think my work is that different from others in its genre; I love quirky characters, strong protagonists, and a huge dose of humour in my stories.
3.) Why do I write what I do?
I always imagine someone coming back from a hard day, and needing a laugh and some escape. I write stories that I think will make them laugh, relax, and have a great night.
4.) How does my writing (or writing with pictures/illustrating) process work?
Lol, uh, write. Rewrite. Rewrite. Rewrite. Rewrite…did I mention, rewrite?
My tags: Johanna Riley, Stacy Dawn, and Alicia Dean
T-Minus 3 hours and counting until the Writers Federation of Strathcona County’s 9 to 99 Conference runs! So looking forward to this–THANKS to Mandy Barnett & all the amazing people who made this happen!
Every time I want to remind myself I’m not as clever as I think, I read the middle-grade classics, Encyclopedia Brown. One mystery that a 10-year-old can solve (and apparently that I can’t) is enough to put me (firmly) back in my place.
At the Bennett Centre camp with grade 3 & 4:
Me: Someone tell me something that would be cool.
Student 1: If you could fly!
Student 2: If you lived on a cloud!
Me: Totally! Anyone else?
Student 3: If you could swim in a pool of popcorn!
Student 4: You know what would be really cool?
Student 4: If college was free.
So excited to announce my play will run in Concrete Theatre’s 2014 Sprouts Festival!
The festival is held June 14 & 15th at the Stanley A. Milner Library Theatre and is open to all–babes in arms, too!
Great advice from Bill Clinton: “The one option in life that is almost always the wrong option,” he said “is walking away and choosing not to be in the game.”
Nothing feels like the start of a weekend like getting that first draft done!
