Book Escape in New West: Reviews & News

From suspenseful reads to literary tweeds…


My book club, Owl & Vine Book Club, has inspired me to read many books over the last few years, both fiction and non-fiction. The club consists of a wonderful and thoughtful group of people with great assessment abilities. My aim is to share some of those reviews with you as well as some of my own researched reads. My brother doesn’t call me “the sleuth” for nothing. Reading and collecting books have become my latest obsession, a personal renaissance. You will find a  mixture of literary reads, the book club’s bent, with psychological suspense and horror, my true loves.

I live in New Westminster: a small, historical Canadian city on the outskirts of Vancouver. This city is one of the oldest in Western Canada. I love historical places and wish to share my city with you.

I am working on my first novel and am in the process of writing a collection of ghost stories. How do I support my obsession? I sell real estate.  You can also find me at or at through the book club

Welcome on my journey.

    Thanks for following my blog and visiting — did you see my offer in today’s post? (Ah, but perhaps you haven’t yet finished your novel?)

    All best, Jody

      Yes, the novel is in development. I am over 9,000 words in, and my goal is around 60,000. I have been reading that writing a few short stories to help build your platform is a good idea so may need to squeeze that in. Thanks for the comment.
