Shelagh Rogers Interview on The Next Chapter

Monday, February 14th, 2022


I’ve had the very great pleasure of spending time with the wonderful Shelagh Rogers, host of CBC Radio’s The Next Chapter many times in the last 14 years since McClelland & Stewart published my first novel. We’ve hung out at various literary festivals  from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan to Woody Point, Newfoundland, and I’ve been on her flagship show, The Next Chapter on three or four occasions over the years. What I’ve always loved about Shelagh is that she is the same person “off the air” as when she’s in front of the microphone interviewing Canadian writers. The very same person. Thoughtful, charming, curious, engaged, and lovely in every way. The latest evidence is my interview with her on The Next Chapter that aired this past Saturday. You can hear it here or click on the image below. Thank you, Shelagh!

Quillblog on THR

If you’re a Canadian writer (published or unpublished) or an avid reader interested in the book world, Quill & Quire is a great publication. I buy it at the newstand but it’s time I subscribed. They also have a great blog called the Quillblog. Check it out. If you look closely, you’ll see that the very talented writer, Zoe Whittall, has written the brief piece above (I’m honoured!). I just heard the podcast of her great interview with Sheila Rogers on The Next Chapter as I walked to work yesterday.

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.
