**My new website/blog can be found HERE.**
If you’ve stumbled here via rabbit hole, wardrobe, Google, or any other magical medium: Welcome. It might be a bit disorienting in this new, strange world at first, but don’t worry. Often I find myself lost as well.
This is the place where I’m supposed to tell you all sorts of witty things about myself that make you smirk and click the ‘follow’ button on the sidebar. I’ve never been terribly clever with smirk-worthy phrases, especially about myself, so I’ll be brief.
I was born with a pen in my hand and have been using it ever since. My work has appeared in everything from school papers, to magazines, to church services, to art galleries, to other websites, and has appeared in two anthologies, and will appear in another within the year. I wrote a fantasy novel, When the River Freezes, between March and May 2012, and since it has been rejected by one publisher and placed second in a publishing contest. I plan on re-writing it within the year, and the poetry collection The Night is Starry is in the works for June 2014. At the moment I’m helping out Storm Bennett-Clark with her blog, to be launched March 11, 2013, and this is taking up most of my time. You can follow Storm on Twitter @StormRoseBlog. A tentative YA novel idea is circulating the juices of my brain, but one project at a time… You can read and read about my writing on the ‘Writing’ page, which you can access by clicking on the link at the top of this blog, or here. And, to toot my own horn (what else is a writer to do?), you might be interested in this post by author Diane Tibert, welcoming me to Blogland and comparing me to Margaret Atwood. 🙂
I live in Atlantic Canada, though I spend most of my time in other worlds created by the genius minds of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries.
As you can see, I blog; sometimes about writing, Tudor personalities, garden gnomes, movies, books, and other assorted debaucheries.
All men should be able to ride a horse at full gallop whilst shooting flaming arrows. Unfortunately I’m in the wrong century for that.
The title of this blog is inspired by a brief one-time motto of Anne Boleyn: Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne — ‘Let them grumble, that is how it is going to be!’
