Success Stories

Recently I contacted the Humber School for Writers to see if the time was right to add 'genre writing' to their course list. The jury's still out on that one, but I was invited to speak as one of the school's 'success stories'.

Well, sure!

I've made a few forays into the world of literature lately, and I've been pleasantly surprised to be warmly received. So far, so good.

Oh! I'll be able to mention, when I speak on the panel, that one of my books has been translated into German. Yes! Wild Card was chosen from the Black Lace list by a German publisher. This looks good on the resume and in the bank account.

I admit I'm a little worried about the Q and A portion of my little talk. Still, with three novels (one translated into German) and lots of short stories to my credit, I can hold my head high.

Wunderbar! Do you know what the German title will be? Hmm ... I wonder if "wild card" translates, as an idiom, into German card-playing culture.
