Fall Update--School Visits, Writing Course

Book Tour

I will be traveling to southern Ontario this fall where I have some school visits planned and I'll be doing a signing at the Birtch Farms Applefest. There have been some delays in the publication process, so I may not have copies of Time Meddlers Undercover with me. If that's the case, I'll try to make another trip to the Woodstock area this fall, or at the latest, around the Christmas Break.

Writing course

I will also begin teaching a writing course at the Shenkman Arts Centre in Orleans. It's called "A Novel Idea 1." Don't groan. I didn't come with the name. My initial proposal was for a children's writing course, because there is nothing available for enthusiastic young writers, but, at the time, it was too late to insert it into the listing, so that course will begin in the spring. But when approached about teaching the adult course, I decided it would be a perfect opportunity to share what I've learned about the writing process and help others improve their craft.


Regarding the upcoming launch of Time Meddlers Undercover, I'll post details once they're finalized. Hope to see you there.
