Several weeks ago I went into the CBC Radio studios in Toronto to record a segment for Shelagh Roger's wonderful book program called The Next Chapter.  Well, it hit the airwaves today.  Here's the three and a half minute segment.  Many thanks to producer Tom Howell, and host Shelagh Rogers at CBC Radio.

It's been about 16 months since the last special episode of The Best Laid Plans podcast but so much has happened in my side-line life as a writer that it's high time I brought all of you up to date.  So here's a talk I did recently at the Women's Canadian Club of Toronto about The Best Laid Plans and my unorthodox and unlikely journey to the published land.  I hope you enjoy it.  It's been quite a ride and I'm grateful for all the support along the way.
