Stuff bloggers have said about Me

“Kathy Blogged” has disappeared from the Author menu on my website. Those words never quite captured what they were trying to say: Here are some blogs where Kathy Stinson is mentioned. But rather than just see some of the neat things bloggers said totally disappear, I decided to put a few of them into a blog of my own.

Jan L. Coates

Here’s Jan Coates, author of The Hare in the Elephant’s Trunk, blogging about “Killing off your darlings”. (The writer in the photo, taken by Erin Thomas, is also Jan.)

Here’s Erin Thomas, author of Haze, blogging about “Ten Honest Things” in which she mentions a few blogs she likes (including mine; I like hers too).

This last one is not exactly a blog but I couldn’t resist tucking it in here. It’s a 5-minute audio podcast that Annick Press produced, during which I chat about Red is Best and a grade one boy in Lethbridge, Alberta, my grandson and A Pocket Can Have A Treasure In It, and how reading helped turn me into a writer.

    Hey, Kathy – hard to believe I'm about 5 years older now than in that fish house picture. Might possibly be my first mention in somebody else's blog:) Thanks! Positive response on my ACF research grant – which means I'll be spending a few weeks in Lunenburg this year!

    5 years, eh, Jan? Time flies!

    It’s not the first time I’VE mentioned you!

    Congratulations on your research grant. All best with the project that takes you to Lunenberg. I’m waiting to hear about that professional development grant I’ve applied for to attend the Richard Wagamese workshop. Won’t likely hear for another month, I don’t think. Please wish me luck!
