one more time

I haven’t been back to this site in a bit but I see from the stats that someone is logging on and reading something almost everyday – mostly from Canada but also from a good number of other countries.

I started this blog to seek feedback regarding my novel-in-progress: “Ever Thus”. Thanks to all of you who sent along your comments – they have all been very helpful. Taking the advice into account, I have completed a re-write and after a manuscript evaluation, I have gone back to make more changes.

However, it would be great to have more feedback from readers in general before I post the final version. If you have thoughts, I would love to hear them – positive, negative, neutral, constructive, destructive…I am all ears (except for my fingers, which are typing).

Much appreciated. Stay safe!


Here is the story in it’s entirety 🙂



My writing experience comprises, almost exclusively, academic papers and technical/ professional reports. However, I have lost faith in these methods as paths to real change. My doctorate is in Education, specifically transformative education and through my research and my work, I have come to the conclusion that people learn more through stories than journal articles. Therefore, instead of investing in the usual strategies for pedagogy, I am leaning toward fiction as a way to change minds about social issues and dilemmas. I believe stories can un-other social interpretations in a way I feel I have failed to in all my academic and professional writing. I hope to convey some alternate ideas about the work I have done for 35 years, as a mental health nurse, psychometrist, educator and administrator.
