Mary Who Wrote Frankenstein
Happy new year! I cannot believe how fast the Fall 2017 academic term went by. So fast that I didn’t even get to share this article I wrote for T8N magazine . It’s about the gap between what men earn and what women earn, an issue that continues to be relevant (and has been topical since I was a young, young feminist). If you’re interested, here’s a link to the article .
Earlier this year I was invited to write an article for T8N magazine about girls, women, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields. I’m really pleased with how it turned out, and it’s such an important topic. If you’re interested in reading it, here’s the link .
MacEwan University had a little ceremony in November to celebrate their authors — both student and staff — and gave me a lovely little Certificate of Recognition for my publication of The Complete Canadian Book Editor.
… recently I’ve been attempting to round out both my teaching options and my writing portfolio, so was happy to accept an assignment from St Albert’s T8N magazine . Turns out, the assignment drew on some of my early writing experiences with forestry and resource management. If you’re interested, click here to read the article, “Fighting Fire with Fire.” You can also read it on paper by picking up a copy of T8N at numerous locations in St Albert.
Well, this is it. The Complete Canadian Book Editor is at press at last and should arrive in bookstores on Tuesday, September 6. Woot! (And I guess I’m wincingly looking forward to discovering the first editorial mistake — eek!)
Above is the cover again, now with back-cover copy in place.
I hope you enjoyed the weekend!
Well, here it is: 383 pages of designed (Dragich Design ) and laid-out manuscript. Now I have two weeks to proof it and add an index before the final production details are worked through, and then it is off to the printer.
We are still hoping to have books by September.

I’m so pleased to report that my book has just reached two big milestones.
First, the edit is finished. In late May I responded to the copyedit and numerous queries. I also wrote a large amount of new material. The weeks since then have involved signing off the copyedit and reviewing the large number of figures and illustrations created to support the written text.
