In case you missed it

I’ve updated my portfolio page with recently published work. There are book reviews, feature stories and interviews. I’ll have more updates in the coming weeks as more of my content is published in various publications. Exciting times, people!

I was particularly pleased to find my article on baby proofing with style on the front page of the Homes section of my city’s newspaper, The Halifax Chronicle Herald. The story continues inside and there’s even a picture of Bear.

I’m still trying to get the hang of a common occurrence — or so I hear — freelancers encounter: securing work, and then being way too busy working to continue pitching and lining up more work. Now that deadlines are passing one by one, the workload is lightening so now I’ll have to build it up again. But it means more time for blogging! I’m going to stop moaning about finding time to blog and just get on with it. It also means I’ll have a bit more time to focus on some home projects and fill you in with what the hell happened to the last week of my November sweeps project! Oops… more on that later! In the meantime, if you are interested, here’s bit of what I’ve been up to.

Feature Stories and Interviews

The Halifax Chronicle Herald: Baby proof with style
We had a hard time finding gates to fit the wonky stairs in our home, and I didn’t want big, chunky, plastic rails. Having a baby doesn’t mean your home has to be suddenly bumper padded and bare. Be smart, be safe but don’t forget you can still be stylish too!

Atlantic Books Today feature story: Socially Acceptable
Bethany Myers is a local YA author and her social media feeds are so much fun

Atlantic Books Today Q&A with singer-songwriter Dan MacCormack: Lyrics and Literature
