I had the honour of giving the keynote reading and interview for Portal Magazine’s Portfolio Reading Series, and it’s now on Youtube, and you can see it anytime you like.
It was such a pleasure to talk with Joe Enns because he ‘got’ the book, which doesn’t always happen, and launching a book during a world-wide pandemic is a pretty silent and lonely thing. No festivals, soirées, retreats by the lake… but I’m alive and so many live in places where it has been harder to stay alive. I’ve had cancer, and that put me on a list to get a vaccine earlier than I might have. My family is untouched by the virus. And I wrote a new book, and it’s out in the world now.
I would write books for only the pleasure and challenge of doing it. It’s what my brain does to keep itself happy and in tune. No complaints here. Stay safe everyone, and do a little writing.
