Sound of Silence didn’t make the Whistler Independent Book Awards’ short-list. However, I was honoured to be in esteemed “long-list” company.

Sound of Silence was ‘long-listed‘ in the Whistler Independent Book Awards non-fiction category. This is the first year for the awards and I’m happy to have made the first cut.

I wrote a short wrap-up of 2015 and put it in WestWord, the Writers’ Guild of Alberta magazine. It’s in the January/February 2016 issue. I’m surrounded by lots of great writers. Graham Clews has had a busy 2015. He learned what a hashtag means, started blogging and indie-published two novels. Politically Detained came out in…
