September marks my first issue as editor of Ageless Living Magazine, and I have to say it’s a heck of an issue!

It’s available now in select pharmacies, gyms, and other locations in Vancouver, Victoria, Penticton, Winfield, and Regina. You can read many of this issue’s great stories at AgelessLivingMagazine.ca, including my profile of Kevin Campbell, the first person ever to complete the Tough Mudder while on dialysis.

New project: Ageless Living Magazine

agelessI’m excited to announce that starting with the September issue, I’ll be taking on the role of Editor at Ageless Living Magazine while current Editor Liberty Craig steps away to welcome her new baby. It’s a great magazine produced right here in BC, and I’m thrilled to join the team to bring the latest information about living an ageless life to readers both in print and online. You can find the current issue and the archive of back issues at AgelessLivingMagazine.ca.

My book: The Hands-On Guide to Surviving Adult Children Living at Home

There’s been The Hands-On Guide to Surviving Adult Children Living at Home by Christina Newberrysome media attention recently for my book, The Hands-On Guide to Surviving Adult Children Living at Home, so I thought I would provide some information here. It’s packed with great information for families with adult children living at home or planning to move home. It’s available in an eBook format that you can read on your computer, iPad, or other device at www.adultchildrenlivingathome.com (where you can also find a great blog with loads of free information and resources). If you prefer a book that you can put on your bookshelf, you can buy a copy  here.

 

Here’s all the key info:

Taking pleasure in a good read… of an English usage guide

If, like me, you appreciate a good English usage guide almost as much as a good novel, you’ll like this article from Harper’s Magazine.

The author recommends H.W. Fowler’s Modern English Usage. I’ve also enjoyed Bill Bryson’s Dictionary of Troublesome Words and The Mother Tongue, as well as Bill Walsh’s excellent Lapsing Into a Comma and The Elephants of Style.
For some reason, none of these books captured the public attention that was given to Lynne Truss’ Eats, Shoots & Leaves, though I think they’re all more technically accurate and satisfying for a real language curmudgeon.
