Mother's Day Tribute

MT and me at my graduation from MSVU in 1990
I would like to wish a very happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there, especially the amazing woman who brought me (and 4 older brothers and sisters) into the world. We call her Mother Theresa or MT for short. Her name really is Theresa so it wasn't a stretch to nickname her after the famous nun who healed the sick and cared for the poorest of poor. We think our MT is pretty special too. It's hard to describe how I feel about her without getting a big lump in my throat. She fills my heart with love, she's my best friend, my confident, my counselor and supporter.

Reading my favourite book, Teddy Bear's Picnic, with MT






At a very early age she instilled a love of reading in us that kept us entertained over the years right up until this very day. Being an avid reader herself, she is also my biggest fan, of course. I should dedicate every single book I write to her as she has also been the most enthusiastic cheerleader, always keeping copies of my books on hand to sell to her Thai Chi class, Red Hatter group... and she even sold a copy of my first book, Mental Pause to the mail carrier! She's always right by my side when I do book signings or author readings in my home town.


I'm the luckiest girl to have a mom like MT. And, to celebrate her and all mothers I'm doing another Kindle give away of my latest novel, Deep Deceit all weekend! 

MT and me at Indigo/Chapters, Halifax, NS

I hope you have a great weekend spending special time with your mom, or if you're a mom, with your kids! Happy Mother's Day!!!

Author Interview: Jack Scott, Turkey Street and Perking the Pansies

This week I'm so thrilled to welcome Jack Scott to Writing...Just Because to share his author journey and a few words of advice. Jack is the author of  Turkey Street - Jack and Liam move to Bodrum, the sequel to the best-selling memoir Perking the Pansies - Jack and Liam move to Turkey.
Here's a little taster of Turkey Street...
Six months into their Turkish affair, Jack and Liam, a gay couple from London, took lodgings in the oldest ward of Bodrum Town. If they wanted to shy away from the curtain-twitchers, they couldn’t have chosen a worse position. Their terrace overlooked Turkey Street like the balcony of Buckingham Palace and the middle-aged infidels stuck out like a couple of drunks at a temperance meeting. Against all the odds, the boys from the Smoke were welcomed into the fold by a feisty mix of eccentric locals and a select group of trailblazing expats, irresistible ladies with racy pasts and plucky presents.
Hop aboard Jack’s rainbow gulet as he navigates the choppy wa…
