I’m a Toronto-based playwright and freelance journalist. I am also the editor of the bi-weekly Popcorn Panel in the National Post’s Friday Movies section. And I dabble in radio, and have worked on a few CBC shows including Cross Country Checkup, Q, Writers & Company, and Canada Reads.

I write about all kinds of stuff, like Peter Pan and balancing owls on your arm. I use this blog to chronicle my published work, and sometimes to talk about things I’m reading or seeing or thinking about. Also, otters.

    Enjoyed your article in the Sunday Star today Alison. Have seen previous articles, but finally found a way to write you. Will continue to watch for more articles. May even go to the show at Spadina House if I find time.

    I just wanted to comment on how much we appreciated your article in the August 27th issue of the National Post.
    Your article called Exotic Canada: Go to the center of ti all in Manitoba. In your article you listed good quick local trips to choose from. You specifically mentioned Clear Water Lake in The Pas. We are very proud of our lake and are so pleased to see that you have acknowledged it in your article. This is one of the many showcases we have in The Pas. Besides the beautiful lakes in the vacinity, we have several annual events such as The Opaskwayak Indian Days and the Northern Manitoba Trappers Festival.
    If you are ever in the neighborhood we welcome you to drop by the Town office so we can give you a personal tour of our area.
    Great article and thanks for thinking of us
