Writers beware – danger lurks in Victoria

DSCN3889 (2)

Victoria, BC is a very dangerous city. We moved here a year ago and it’s a wonder I get any writing done. The view of the gorge from our living room and the mild weather lure me outside. The beautiful historic buildings in a downtown that’s always bustling with tourists and entertainment and food trucks—impossible to resist and we can get there by water taxi. Is there a better way to travel for a leisurely Saturday lunch and afternoon of fun?

Then there’s the list of attractions demanding to be explored: Craig Darroch Castle, Point Ellice House, Fort Rodd, Ross Bay Villa, Fisherman’s Wharf (with the lovely houseboats and an assortment of restaurants and seals to feed), Chinatown ( the second largest in North America  …

And the list of natural sights to be enjoyed: Beacon Hill Park, Ogden Point (where the cruise ships dock), Mount Tolmie offering a panoramic view of the city, Dallas Road following the ocean shore, the Butchart Gardens …

And the list of restaurants enticing us with their varied menus: Glo, Milestones, Green Leaf Vietnamese Bistro, La Taquisa …

How to fit all of that in and still find time to write and market my books? Somehow, I manage and a new book will soon be ready for publication.

Meanwhile, the first novel of my Em and Yves Series, EMBATTLED is available free. And, the second can be yours free too when you subscribe to my newsletter. For more information go to
