    August Performances

    I will be giving 7 performances of Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter in British Columbia between 13-23 August. The Gabriola Island Theatre Festival will host one show on August 15 and the other six will be on Vancouver Island at the Harbour City Theatre in Nanaimo. Please see the Appearances page for details.

    July News

    After years of being a one-woman show in every respect, I’m delighted to announce that the Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter one-woman show will now be represented by Tammy Fox at the Fox Entertainment Agency. All future performance booking enquiries should be directed to tammy@foxent.ca.

    Portraits of Canadian Authors

    Photographer and crystal artist Mark Raynes Roberts has created a series of portraits entitled ILLUMINATION – Portraits of Canadian Authors and Literature.

    “Literature is an art of illumination. Every author wants to shed light on some truth no matter what form the writing takes: fiction or non-fiction. Writing is a pursuit of knowledge and understanding; the desire to bring attention to a story that needs to be told, whether it be about a person, an imagined life, an issue, a part of our history or the human condition. This is why literature is important. We’re not only enriched by it; we’re connected by it.”

    ILLUMINATION – “Portraits of Canadian Authors and Literature” will be exhibited this coming Fall, at the Gardiner Museum, the Toronto Reference Library and at the International Festival of Authors, Harbourfront Centre, presenting 150 Canadian author portraits celebrating Canada’s literary community.

    The Frye Festival

    One of the highlights of Moncton’s wonderful Frye Festival was the Frye Jam, an event in which 6 writers (3 anglophone, 3 francophone) were invited to read their work alongside jazz musicians Les Paiens, who improvised in, around, and through the texts. The results were mesmerizing, the music injecting colour and texture beneath the words, increasing their intensity, and bringing them to life in new and unexpected ways. Many of the texts literally danced (and so did Sean Michaels, author of Us Conductors). What a treat it was.

    Spring Shows, Talks & Readings

    Spring 2015: Theatre Collingwood will be hosting a performance of Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter at the Historic Gayety Theatre (not making that up) in Collingwood, Ontario on April 11, and the great Frye Festival in Moncton, New Brunswick, will host a performance and a reading on May 2.

    I’ll be doing two other events this spring before retreating to my writing desk for the summer: reading with the brilliant Alison Pick at Hamilton’s GritLit Festival (April 18/19), and I’ll be the keynote speaker at the Canadian Non-Fiction Collective‘s annual conference in Victoria, BC on April 24.

    Details for all of these events can be found on the Upcoming Events page.
