December 24th, 2009

Earlier in December, I did an interview with Nigel Killick, who produces PeopleTalk, a great podcast, out of England. He has a considerable following in North America and in Asia. In our conversation, we talk about my publishing journey, politics and social media. You should check out some of the other interesting interviews posted on the site. Many thanks Nigel.

Several weeks ago I went into the CBC Radio studios in Toronto to record a segment for Shelagh Rogers’ wonderful book program called The Next Chapter.  Well, it hit the airwaves today.  Here’s the three and a half minute segment.  Many thanks to producer Tom Howell, and host Shelagh Rogers at CBC Radio.

A special podcast episode

February 1st, 2009

It’s been about 16 months since the last special episode of The Best Laid Plans podcast but so much has happened in my side-line life as a writer that it’s high time I brought all of you up to date.  So here’s a talk I did recently at the Women’s Canadian Club of Toronto about The Best Laid Plans and my unorthodox and unlikely journey to the published land.  I hope you enjoy it.  It’s been quite a ride and I’m grateful for all the support along the way.

The great music featured in the podcast is by Jon Schmidt and is called Winter Serenade. It is available from the Podsafe Music Network. My friend Roger Dey provides the voice that opens the podcast.
