Re-emerging

If you look really closely, you'll see a small turtle hidden in the reeds in this picture I took at Wye Marsh a few years ago. Today, I'm feeling a lot like that turtle—scared to stick my neck out, wondering if I should just stay out of sight, pretend I'm not even here. My so-called […]

Why I’ve been reluctant to ask for help

Aboriginal Authors – the Awakening Giant

I asked M. D. (Dorene) Meyer to write a guest blog on an area of writing that is very close to her heart, but not exactly in the mainstream of writing. As we look at changing the way publishing industry works, and in particular Canadian Christian publishing, we need to think of the many groups […]
