About Valerie

I have always been a reader but I didn't realize people had careers in writing until well after I finished school. Apparently I thought books sprouted from magical bushes in distant lands under moonlit skies while fairies danced.

There is a classic stereotype of a writer, locked away in a dim room, staring at a single screen as they shut the world out in order to produce a new one. And honestly, I'm okay with that.Why? I am an introvert. No matter which personality type test... Read the rest of this post

Thanks for your kind comment on my book! It was fun to hear from you here in China where I am doing school visits!

Comment by Marcus Riedner on 11/12/2008 at 12:37 PM:
Hah! Totally, though right now it's not so much mastery of the 'Trails' but dodging random road closures and constructions. This city is totally building bonkers.

Hey Valerie! Where on the Canadian prairies? I'm in Calgary, I'm a total Alberta boy. Even did the 'move to Vancouver, move back to Alberta' thing!

Hello Valerie ... Thank you for telling me about this site . I didn't credit you with the info because I hit the wrong key but I will rectify it some how, I know there is a way!
It was great seeing one of your paintings in the gallery last week . It should almost be done , or maybe not , a lo... more

So I've added a link to CPSA on my site too. More people should know about their work. Have always worked in pen-and-ink (I'm one of those who lives in black and white), but I'm going to visit that corner of my studio where all the coloured pencils have been lurking in the shadows, awaiting their ti... more

Hi, Rae, Isn't it an amazing medium? I'm constantly awestruck by the variety that the artists there produce - both in technique and genre. North Light used to publish books of the annual exhibits (I've collected them all) and now offer CDs of the artwork displayed each year.

Hi Val,

I'm on the CANSCAIP list too (I live in Winnipeg), and just signed up on JacketFlap. Sidled over to visit your site and followed your link to the Coloured Pencil Society of America. I didn't even know they existed, and there is some a-m-a-z-i-n-g work on that site!
