What a year, my friends. 2020 was a cyclone that picked me up and plopped me back down on the prairies again—I'm now living in Calgary, thrilled to be closer to my family during the pandemic and under all the winter sunshine. After nearly ten years on the west coast, I miss everyone terribly, but am hopeful for a future of unlimited visits, hugs, and long drives (or quick flights!) through the mountains. In the midst of everything, 'Moldovan Hotel' has received advanced praise from Carmen Maria Machado and Juliane Okot Bitek, and this incredible cover designed by Natalie Olsen. Pre-order your copy now through Brick Books, or order through your favourite local indie! (Here in my new city I love Shelf Life and The Next Page.) Wishing you all a peaceful 2021; may the coming months bring us nothing but safety and recovery.
