’Tis the season to be . . . blorft. “Blorft”is an adjective coined by funny lady Tina Fey in her autobiographical comedy book Bossypants to mean “completely overwhelmed but trying to proceed as if everything is fine.” In the mad dash that precedes the holidays, there are a lot of […]
Where are you finding the whimsy in your everyday life? Where are you creating it? That’s what Sprout Online Magazine asked me in an interview they published in this month’s (Aug. 2013) eye-catching issue (#22). It got me thinking.
When it comes to finding the whimsy in life, some […]
I’ve been M.I.A. online for awhile. Those of you who follow these posts may be wondering why. Blame “dem bones”—the ones in our family that keep breaking. First my mother fell and broke her hip necessitating an extended trip/stay in Ontario for me. I returned to B.C. to break my little toe on a […]
On May 14, we launched our first annual “Bad Poetry” contest—just for the fun of it. And fun it has been! But all bad things must come to an end.

I love libraries—and librarians. My first job was in a library, and my comical characters are still hanging out in the stacks of fictional Big Beaver County libraries trying to make my readers laugh. But there’s nothing funny about the empty shelves in many underfunded school libraries these […]
A Jennifer Aniston Christmas? How so? Well, I’m in the Christmas spirit, so I wanted to give my readers a gift. I’d love to give you your heart’s desire, but I don’t know what that is (and I likely couldn’t afford it if I did). Then I remembered Delmar Dunwoody—one of the comic characters in […]
Is Santa now a quitter? And if so, who’s next? Those are some questions I’d never have thought to ask if I hadn’t read this article about self-published Vancouver writer Pamela McColl and her literary campaign for a smoke-free Santa Claus.
