The Bookless Club
It’s just like a book club … only there’s no book, and no club.

I’ve been writing for years. Here are some of my favourite pieces. I hope you enjoy them!
Jane's Junk Drawer
Useful, interesting … mysterious! Jane’s Junk Drawer is a haphazard trove of curiosities, ideas, and stuff too good to throw away.
was in Manhattan last March. Pandemic fears were just starting to ratchet up but, beatifically oblivious, I was taking in a play in Times Square with a former neighbour. The play was Come From Away, the true story of the 38 plane loads of passengers diverted to Gander, Newfoundland following the 9/11 attacks. Essentially, the play is about kindness and the spirit of volunteerism. About how, when the chips are down, we humans have a magnificent capacity to pull together. It’s a tale that bears repeating and we humans are always in search of a reprise, on any scale.

Hi! I'm Jane!
I’m a Canadian journalist. My professional life has included radio, TV, and film. My writing has appeared in a variety of publications in Canada and the US but I’m best known for my work as a columnist for Canada’s National Post. I’m working on a book but we’ll both be a lot older by the time I finish it … if I ever finish it. As for the five pounds I gained during the pandemic, those are probably here for the duration. (Okay, so it’s closer to ten pounds ….)
