In the Shadow of the Mountain

In the Shadow of the Mountain

After the publication of my last novel, Shafted: A Mystery, I talked to the good folks at the Smithers Community Radio Station (CICK at 93.9 FM) about doing a show during which I read the story and played some tunes that seemed to fit. It was nerve-wracking to say the least because even while I was reading, I had to run the board, check sound levels, play the songs, and slide the sliders. I found myself having quite a bit of fun and managed to fit in a slightly abridged version of the novel over ten shows. (Novels contain an awful lot of words, in case you haven’t noticed. Plus reading out loud is a killer test for clunky sentences – but we won’t talk about that now.)

After that I went to Portugal2014-10-05 port glasses, but that’s another story.

Come 2015, I decided to re-start In the Shadow of the Mountain, this time featuring other writers. It’s been a blast.

Local and regional writers I’ve featured include Jane Stevenson, Valerie Laub, Grace Hols, Melissa Sawatsky, Susan Juby, Eden Robinson, John Harris, Vivien Lougheed, Emily McGiffen, Fabienne Calvert Filteau, Donna Kane, Jennifer  Skin Wickham, Janet Rogers from Victoria and Kevin Spenst from the Lower Mainland. Link to the show to listen to the podcasts.

  1. And you interviewed me too, on November 13th! It was a lot of fun, like Kootenay Co-op Radio, via Skype, which really did work much better than I imagined it would.
