Rules on public speaking learned at this morning’s Ben McNally Books and Brunch: 1. Never take antihistamines before any sort of public speaking engagement as your mouth will turn into the Gobi desert. 2. Never assume you can just read the lovely speech you have prepared for the event.
In spite of failing at both #s 1 and 2, it was a lovely morning and I very much enjoyed meeting my fellow authors and brunch table companions.
Last night’s launch of What Remains was a love-in!
If you want to spend a night getting heartfelt hugs from well-wishers, I highly suggest writing a book. So many pals showed up in the April sleet to share in the excitement that I was truly humbled.
Much jamon was carved, clever speeches were given from the art deco stairs and I could hardly step away from my banquette perch with a pen, there were so many dear friends lined up to have me sign a copy of the book. In all, a night to remember, captured here in a lovely photo taken by Ricky Mugford.

Sat down with the lovely and talented Gillian Deacon at CBC radio’s Here and Now earlier today to talk books, specifically my new book, What Remains.
Here’s a link to our conversation!
What I’ve learned so far–courtesy of the fabulous people at Zoomer magazine, who were kind enough to feature me in a Q&A in their March issue!
Absolutely floored to hear such an enthusiastic response to What Remains from my esteemed colleague, none other thanthe Globe & Mail’s style journalista, Nathalie Atkinson via Instagram this morning!
Beyond thrilled that even before What Remains has hit bookstore shelves, it’s already made it onto Chatelaine’s Best Reads of 2017 Hotlist!
