Hi, Brian.

Just wanted to send you a note to let you know I have a short story published in CommuterLit! Read it here

It’s a little something I usually write.  I also wanted to thank you for all of your assistance with my writing.  I love your classes and seminars.  It is the one thing I can thank the pandemic for, I am able to do on line Zoom classes with you and the whole gang! 

Thanks again.

Cynthia Stacey

Note: This summer, my weekly writing classes will again all be online. See here. ~Brian

Hi, Brian.

I am wondering if you would consider sharing my news in your newsletter. You read the first pages of an early draft of my book and provided comments at a children’s writing workshop you were hosting in the west end.

I released The Lines Between Our Stars, the first book in my young adult The Summer Triangle Trilogy on March 31, 2021.

When a dragon-snake slithers into the lab where fifteen-year-old Jas volunteers, he and his artsy rival, Gloria, teleport to an exoplanet to rescue the life form’s son. Now, the Interplanetary Space Agency is determined to stop them.

With water scarce and few comforts of home, the teens find themselves up against a formidable foe. They’ll have to overcome obstacles together or be stranded on this dusty planet light-years from Earth.

See the book trailer here.  



Begin, and inspiration will find you.” ― H. Jackson Brown Jr.

The Lines Between Our Stars is available on Amazon here.


Hi, Brian.

All the best,

Jane Finlayson
