Alphabet Soup Interview

Hey Everybody,

It’s been a long and wild and weird summer, but I wanted to finally post my first radio interview for your listening “pleasure.”

Laura Trethewey and Matthew Walsh interviewed me on CiTR 101.9 FM‘s Alphabet Soup radio show on June 11, 2014. I felt like the interview went really well, considering I have a face for radio, but a voice for silent film. Also considering that I invented a brand new pronunciation of the word “scarce!”  Catch it at about the 17 minute mark.

Take a listen, but be warned: there are swears and sex talk ahead. The interview starts at 6:08 minutes in.

Hello Peeps,

I am so excited to announce a super cool and FREE reading coming soon to Vancouver!

Amanda Leduc

I have been honoured to help organize a reading in celebration of Amanda Leduc’s new novel, The Miracles of Ordinary Men, and I want YOU to join us!

On Wednesday, August 28th (7 pm), Amanda and four other amazing authors—Jen Neale, Jay Hosking, Andrea Hoff, and Taylor Basso—will present a magical realism reading at The Cottage Bistro at 4470 Main Street. This reading is GOING TO BLOW YOUR MIND. It is also open to the public and FREE, so how can you say no to that? You can’t.

If you’d like to RSVP (not required), please head over to the public Facebook event here:

The Paper Hound—Vancouver’s newest used bookstore—will be there with a selection of literary books for sale. Amanda’s book will also be for sale and she’ll be available for signing. (Cash only.)

So come on down! And when you do, don’t forget to introduce yourself to me (I’m the one with the bright red hair). I love to meet new people!

We’re going to have a great night!


Praise for Amanda Leduc’s The Miracles of Ordinary Men:

“Amanda Leduc’s The Miracles of Ordinary Men is fantastic realism, if there is such a thing – well, there is now. Like a waking dream, it has the capacity to seduce and surprise, and it exercises its option on both.”
— Andrew Pyper, author of The Demonologist

“The novel is a beautiful read, and Leduc’s observations and well placed descriptions lend the magical realism a lyrical quality, hinting at the language and imagery of religious texts without actually turning Biblical.”
— The National Post

“The Miracles of Ordinary Men is darkly ambitious yet accessible, and mutable, for each reader will come to different conclusions.”
— The Globe and Mail
