I'll be reading "The Corpse Pose" a couple of times in Vancouver this and next month. The story was the first I wrote following my Dad's death in December, and deals with death from a number of angles. I wonder how easy it will be to read it to an audience. With that slight trepidation, I am looking forward to the events.
"The Corpse Pose" will be published in the December Room Magazine's Women and Spirituality issue.

"WOTS brings out an estimated 35,000 visitors for literary readings, demonstrations, music, contests, panels and much more. It's one of the year's highlights and is a great way for publishers to connect with readers, current and new."
And vice versa, I should think!
