autumn happenings

The leaves are changing, falling, scattering, drying, crunching underfoot. Putting on a pair of wristwarmers under my coat sleeves, mashing a toque on my head, and taking a walk to the library or the post office is peak autumn vibes for me.

The autumn is shaping up to be good in terms of book things as well! I’ll be appearing at the Halifax Central Library on October 24th as a part of Booktoberfest, a celebration hosted by writers who released books during the pandemic.

I’m also going to have a table at the annual Kris Kringle Craft Fair at the North Woodside Community Center in Dartmouth on November 12th. I was a vendor at the event last year and had an absolute blast!

I’m so thrilled to be getting back into event mode. One of my favourite parts of being an author is getting to be out in the community meeting readers and chatting with other creative folks.

With National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) just around the corner, I’m gearing up for some serious writing. It’s been awhile since I’ve really pushed ahead with a long project. Also looking forward to attending some write-ins and meeting other writers!

I’m also really lucky that two local bookstores are carrying my books: Bookmark Halifax and the Dartmouth Book Exchange. If you’re outside the HRM area, all three of the Patch Project books are available through your local library or favourite bookseller. There’s also a menu option at the top of this page which has some quick links to all of the Patch Project series.

Hope you’re all enjoying the fall season with all the sweaters, tea and coffee, and nostalgic and Halloween-y vibes you desire!
