Regina, Montreal, and Surrey were great

I had great times in Regina, Montreal, and Surrey. In Regina, I gave a keynote at a conference on the future of nursing sponsored by the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association

I read at three libraries in Montreal in a very well organized mini-tour sponsored by the Canada Council for the Arts, and spent this past weekend at the Surrey International Writers Conference, which was absolutely terrific.

One of the nice things about this life is that no matter where I go, it seems I have friends there. DAW author Edward Willett kindly picked me up at the Regina airport; Julia Taminiau and Debi Ancel, who are fans of my work, drove me around in Montreal; and my student and friend Bonnie Jean Mah picked me up at the Vancouver airport. Thanks, guys!

I’m home in Toronto until Friday, when Carolyn and I head off to Denver, where I’m Guest of Honor at MileHiCon, then, miraculously, I’ve got three whole months in which I don’t have to fly anywhere. Finally some time to relax by the fireplace — and write!
