In October 2015 I published a novel, Alone: A Winter in the Woods (Hidden Brook Press) and you can read about it and how it came to be written on the Books page. On the following page you will find current reviews.

Blue Denim Press, after the success of Hill Spirits (2012), has released a second anthology Hill Spirits II,  edited by Gwynn Scheltema, Erika Rummel, Susan Statham and me.  The anthology showcases some of the remarkable writers who live in this area and are members of the Spirit of the Hills Writers’ Group, a  part of Spirit of the Hills Arts AssociationHill Spirits III.  Hill Spirits III, eds Reid, F.S., Scheltema, G. and Statham, S. was released at the Spirit of the Hills Festival of the Arts in November 2017 and a fourth volume is planned for October 2019.

Finally a little about Word on the Hills, a continuing series on Northumberland 89.7 FM. This half hour show introduces listeners to authors, editors and publishers who are based in this region. We then invite them to read from their works. Gwynn Scheltema and I , co-hosts of the programme will celebrate our fifth anniversary with the radio station which first broadcast in December 2013, this November.  We have a list of interesting interviewees lined up for the months to come. The show currently airs on Sundays at 1:00 pm, is streamed at northumberland987.ca and can be accessed at any time and from anywhere on our website http://wordonthehills.com/
