**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!’

    • Hi Diane; you’re very welcome, I always look forward to your blog posts! Thank you, I hope you’ll enjoy reading these as much as I enjoy writing them! 🙂

  1. Ah! I made the connection: Libby, Harry, birthday. I hadn’t realised it was you. Welcome to Blogland. After you have a few more posts, I’ll blog about you. I’m glad you enjoy my blog.

    • Aha, yes, it’s me. Thanks — I’ve been toying with the idea of a blog for about six months now and I am glad I decided to. That would be great, Diane, and I think I have some interesting things up my sleeve for this week!

  2. Hi Libby! Thanks for liking my post! Yeah, the Tudors are awesome, aren’t they? It’s really, really cool that someone compared you to Margaret Atwood! I can’t wait to read your writing! Good luck on your fantasy novel and poetry!

    • Hi Lily! You’re very welcome! The Tudors are so fascinating it’s ridiculous. My friends are abnormally educated on the 1500s compared to regular people because I can rarely shut up about them! (Speaking of which, happy Elizabeth I Accession Day!). I truly don’t deserve the comparison to Ms.Atwood, but it definitely boosted my self-confidence in my writing.
      Thanks so much for stopping by, and for following. 😀

      Oh, and I stumbled across your blog through a comment you left on Alison’s Writing at Midnight blog. 🙂

      • Great! That’s good to know! I’m not sure how Alison found out about my blogs, though. It was through either Writers and Authors on Facebook or another author who interviewed me on her blog. Please follow my blogs, leave some comments, and tell your friends about them!
        I’m not a big history buff, but the Tudors do fascinate me. It was my learning how they were all human beings like me and my family, not heroes and villains in a fairy tale, that prompted me to write this poem. We seem to each be fans of both, though! 🙂
        I’m looking forward to reading your stuff and hearing more about what you think of mine.
