A Green Christmas

A Green Christmas

Due to the large price tag of a flight across the ocean, we spent Christmas in England this year. There wasn’t any snow. My husband can’t believe it. He might believe Christmas was a dream. Thanks to modern marvels like the Internet, however, both of us got to chat with our families on Christmas day. …

Crisis Mode

There are so many memes on the internet these days, I barely pay attention anymore. While scrolling through my Facebook news feed a few days ago, one did manage to catch my eye. It was one of those simple black and white images with a quote proclaiming some people think they could survive the zombie …

On the Horizon

On the Horizon

I can hardly believe we’re ringing in another new year! Just one year ago we were in blistery, wintery northern Quebec, half-buried in the snow! This year has seen the edit of one of the novels I wrote last year, and the writing of its sequel. It still hasn’t seen the publication of any of …

The Hope and Anchor

When we finally found the perfect place to live in England, we ran into a small snag; it wasn’t available for occupancy for a month. When you pick up and move across an ocean, you don’t bring much with you. Especially when you don’t know how long you’re going to stay. We brought with us …

Call Me a Dreamer

Call Me a Dreamer

There are two ways to find happiness. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking lately (a dangerous past time, I know). Despite a deep desire for stability, my husband and I constantly find ourselves uprooted, buffeted by the winds of change to places we never imagined we’d go. And, to a certain extent, we embrace …

First Port of Call

First Port of Call

After our brief stay in London, we lugged all our suitcases back to the train station and traveled to Portsmouth. Our trip to England proved an excellent opportunity to meet with a fellow writer we met years ago on an RPG forum. He and his lady graciously offered to host us while we looked for …
