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! A haphazard trove of curiosities, ideas, and stuff too good to throw away.
It was a small pulp mill just Howe Sound and, even standing under the Birks clock at the corner of Georgia and Granville, when the wind whistled down the sound you’d be reminded of the backbone of the local economy. The odour of the mill pervaded the entire city. “Woodfibre”, we’d ruefully remark, while waving our hands under our noses.

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 ….)
