Thanks to Susan Juby for appearing on Shelagh Rogers and saying lovely things about the Most Heartless Town in Canada. She described my book as very funny and the Canadian version of The Family Fang.

One of my new stories was on the Matrix Lit POP short list of five, and will, I think, be the first story in my next collection. Another is upcoming in Nashwaak Review at St. Thomas University. I have been inspired by some amazing collections, including several from Atlantic Canada.

Happy to be on the CBC short story longlist. Back writing stories.
