Sci-fi to Science Reality

I was going to write a post today about how scientists are working with ultrasonics to produce levitation on both a large level (moving platforms) and on a tiny, near molecular level in medicinal studies, and how this is similar to the ay my stories have used ultrasonics for ship propulsion and showers, among other […]

The Year to Come: Lilly Cain

Looking Back 2012 wasn’t exactly fun. Although I released Undercover Alliance and a couple of other, non-related novellas, it wasn’t a writing year. It was a survival year. Laid off from my day job, dealing with family illness, struggling as nearly everything broke down (even me, LOL). Truthfully, I don’t want to look back at […]

I’m honored to be among this interesting, intelligent, fun and creative group of authors. – J.L. Hilton Cathy Pegau Caught in […]

Hi everyone! You may have noticed I haven’t been on for a bit. In fact I haven’t been on since before Hal-Con. Well let me tell you about that first. Hal-con, Atlantic Canada’s Science fiction and fantasy convention, was a blast! I met with writers and readers and mingled with stars. I got a chance […]

My First Con

October 26 – 28 I will be attending my very first sci-fi/fantasy/comic con! It’s pretty exciting, I’ve read about these cons and watched them on TV and now I am going to the Atlantic Canada Hal-Con! Of course I am a little concerned about my writing and how it will fit in – I write […]

Worldwide Imagination: Libraries

I’ve always been interested in architecture. Of course my mind wanders, and my ideas for architecture often get blended into other, stranger thoughts (see my post on relocating ideas to consder). Lately I’ve been thinking about Libraries and how they are changing. Around here – Atlantic Canada – you don’t see a lot of innovative […]
