New Author Webpage

Meanderings and Muses isn't going anywhere.


I do have a new webpage which will focus mostly on my writing.

If you're interested in reading more about my books, anthologies, and events, please click over to

There are a few videos of me reading from "Whimsey: A Novel," and from other favorite authors' work.

With more videos still to come.

The new page is a work in progress with plans for still more to come
- I'm just still trying to figure out exactly what that might be -
so check back from time to time, please.

See you there!

Definitely congratulations to the winners, as well as the nominees. I'm glad I didn't have to select a winner from those groups - they would have all won.

Thanks for reporting on this, Kaye! Exciting news for people at the University of Saskatchewan. Alan Bradley (Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie) spent over 30 years as our colleague until he retired - and decided to become famous.
Congratulations to all the winners!

It was indeed a very strong group this year, wasn't it?! I'm very happy to have some of my favorite people win, but I sure am glad I didn't have to do the choosing!!

Floating is a good thing . . . Enjoy it, Hank! Well earned, sweetie!
