Just taught my final class at Place des Arts for the foreseeable future. While it was sad to say goodbye, it was an amazing feeling to have so many students want me to stay. Ended the semester with full classes, and rumours of a wait list for the next. (I’ll be leaving things in good shape for the next instructor!) A couple students brought gifts, but the card I received from one student who thanked me for being a “great mentor” really made my day. I even got to liken James Frey’s “agency” with summoning a Crossroads demon in Supernatural. And my students knew exactly what I was talking about. My life is awesome.
I have written a few novels for teenagers. My work includes: Rise of the One-Eyed King (Iron Mask Press), Flying Feet (Orca), Rancor (Iron Mask Press) and Pyre (Simply Read Books). Now I work as a library tech while road tripping on weekends in my Jeep.
