Deciding what to include on a page of links is really hard.

Writing related sites:

  • Coteau Books – publisher of my three YA novels.
  • – a how-to resource for writers, with essays addressing a wide range of topics for writers at all levels of experience.
  • – a great collection of reference sources in one handy site.
  • YABS – the Young Alberta Book Society.

Blogs I like to read:

  • My LiveJournal friends, (as listed under “friends” — what a surprise) many of whom are published authors or are working toward publication
  • Justine Larbalestier – the Australian YA writer of the Magic or Madness trilogy. Very entertaining.
  • Author! Author! – Another great resource for writers looking to improve their writing or to get published. Take a look at the category listings in the right column — very comprehensive.

Some Canadian YA writers I enjoy reading (not a comprehensive list):


  • Flickr – from time to time I post pictures over at Flickr, usually of places I’ve recently visited, sometimes of things that simply caught my eye.
  • BBC news – where I go for my daily dose of international news.
  • Web Sudoku – where I sometimes go to play.
