My goal is to liberate, entertain and have some fun in the process.
What made you want to be a writer?
I don't know that it is so much that I want to be a writer as it is "this is what I do!'
I make stuff up. As long as I can remember I have been wandering through life entertaining people and playing with ideas and scenes in my head.
Well then, when did this change from something you just do to the idea of writing as a career?
The idea has been there for decades and I am only now really getting serious about it.
I wrote this poem when I was thirteen. My teacher praised it. I naively announced that I wanted to become a writer. This was definitely neither the expected nor accepted alternative planned for me. By the time, the dust settled, I had become aware of the existence of me separate from other people's expectations of me.
My path to this point has been long and winding. However, as I have said, in many ways, that poem was the beginning of me.
"Canadian? Me?" is for anyone who wants to celebrate the experience of living in this land. Want to put some meaning into the holidays? Want to feel included rather than excluded? "Canadian? Me?" is for you! In a pageant-style meant to capture the spirit of Being Canadian, the book presents a model for shared celebration times and "reasons for the seasons".
