I learned last night that my story, The Power Man, has been short-listed for the Crime Writers of Canada 2019 Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Short Story!

Its too early for an acceptance speech, but Id like to thank Coffin Hop Press of Calgary for including The Power Man in the dark Christmas anthology Baby, Its Cold Outside, even though my story isnt that dark.

We had a great turnout for yesterday’s writing workshop — Finding The Words — which kicked off with a masterful example of storytelling by Elder Robert Cree.

The event was presented free of charge thanks to the generosity of the Writers Guild of Alberta, the Wood Buffalo Arts Council, and The Wood Buffalo Regional Library. ... See MoreSee Less
