||A Day in the Life of....
2013 is off to an exciting start. I'm very much enjoying my tenure as Writer in Residence for the Saskatoon Public Library System. The nine month term—Sept/12 through May/13 has enabled me to continue doing something I love—mentor emerging writers and offer workshops to writing groups of varied ages.
I'm adjusting to life back in Saskatchewan - and this year, the word adjustment is accurate as this particular prairie province has been undergoing record setting winter temperatures with abundant snow.
Looking back at 2012... I was kept busy with numerous writing and rodeo commitments, which included another Writer in Residence term - this one through the Chinook Arch Library System in Southern Alberta.
And I'm excited to be working with the Toronto-based Dundurn Group who is publishing my latest book, Old Man (... more info). I'll be spending time in Toronto in the early spring to attend signings at the Ontario Library Association Conference for the eastern Canadian launch of Old Man.
A western-Canadian book launch is scheduled at Saskatoon's McNally Robinson bookstore. Presented in partnership with the Saskatoon Public Library, this event is set for February 28, 2013 at 7:00 pm (... details).
Rodeo season is just around the corner with my first stop, Lethbridge, AB in early March for the PBR.
I am writing this from my 'temporary' winter home just west of Saskatoon where I have been spending my free time shovelling snow, feeding horses and taking brisk winter walks!! LOL That said—I am totally enjoying each day here and look forward to the months remaining in my Writer in Residence position.
And to all of you, I wish a 2013 filled with happiness, peace …and lots of great books.
