Ian Weir and I had a great talk about writing (and TV, and perseverance) with students, faculty, and community members at Thompson Rivers University on Friday. The next evening, we read in the most beautiful venue, Kamloops's Old Courthouse, which brought all my Law and Order dreams to life (see Ian reading from the bench). Glorious live music from Crossbow, lovely booksellers from the local Chapters, and an inquisitive audience. Can't wait to read Ian's newest novel, The Death and Life of Strother Purcell, especially now that I've heard some in his own voice. Big thanks to the Kamloops Society for the Written Arts for having me! (That's the indefatigable JP Baker and Lindsay Curry with us below.)
I'm the author of All True Not a Lie In It (Knopf Canada 2015, Ecco USA 2016) and The Old Familiar (Thistledown 2008).
