    Just wanted to take a minute to brag that my first novel, Out of the Ordinary, is starting to sell. It’s exciting and a bit scary as I put my “baby” out there in the big, bad world.

    I’ve already had some feedback — one reader said he could not put it down and read the whole thing straight through. He hated the ending though, so the review wasnt’ totally positive. I guess I’ll need to get used to that.

    Still, publishing a novel, any novel is a goal I’ve wanted to achieve for a long time, since I started writing as a teenager in 6th period lunch. Since then there have been a lot of cold dinners and late nights, but never a regret for telling the story.

    When I received my first copy, I smoothed its covers between my palms, bent in to smell the pages as I fanned them across my face. I handled the bookmark that had been printed in the book’s image, before turning to the one story in the anthology that was mine. It had taken years, just to get to this, but every bit of toil to make difficult writing appear easy, was worth it. “Ashes” is out in the world, the second title in an acclaimed book of fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction.

    The book is “Half in the Sun, anthology of Mennonite writing”, published by Ronsdale Press and available on, and

    After over a year of trying to sell my memoirs titled IF IT DOESN’T KILL YOU IT CAN ONLY MAKE YOU STRONGER: the inspirational life story of a kidney transplant patient. on my own Writers Literary loved it and offerred me a contract to be represented by them. It feels so awkward telling people that I have an agent. Oh well I’ll get used to it.
