A little musical theatre from the Willett family

Regina Lyric Musical Theatre, of which both I and my wife are past presidents and life members, found a way to make musical theatre despite Covid-19 restrictions, producing Flip the Script: Broadway in Reverse, an online concert of gender-swapped Broadway songs, May 7, 8, and 9, 2021. It was a great concert with lots of terrific performances–and …

My new vlog: join me as I walk and talk around Regina

I like to walk, and I’ve recently discovered the phenomenon of people livestreaming walks in various places around the globe. I’ve decided to do the same–even bought a motion-smoothing gimbal. I livestream these on Facebook and YouTube, then later upload the HD version from the phone and delete the livestream copy. That eliminates the buffering …

February 17 is I Read Canadian Day, and to promote Canadian books and bookstores, a number of children’s authors across the country posted videos drawing attention to that fact and to a local bookstore–as well, of course, as their own books.

A short story reading on video

Lyric Theatre in Swift Current asked me to record a short story for the “Write Out Loud” component of their Lyric Theatre Digital Stage. I chose to read “Memory Jam” from my collection Paths to the Stars (available from www.shadowpawpress.com). I thought you might enjoy it, too, so…here it is!

Successful poetry book launch, complete with music!

I talk about worldbuilding!

On Tuesday of this week I gave a presentation at the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild office, part of its Write After Lunch series of authors’ talks, entitled “Worldshaping.” The topic was what is usually called “worldbuilding,” but since my upcoming eighth novel for DAW Books (for which I just received the page proofs) is called Worldshaper, …

Merry Christmas: me singing “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”

Here’s a holiday treat (at least, I hope it’s a treat): me singing “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” at Christmas Crackers 2015, the annual holiday revue of The Golden Apple Theatre here in Regina. It was a great evening all the way around, and this was my small contribution to it. Enjoy, and Merry …

‘Twas the Nocturnal Time of the Preceding Day…video edition

A “science column” I wrote several years ago, my science-writer’s take on the famous poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” has had remarkable life. It appeared in the newspaper, of course, but it was originally written for for CBC Saskatchewan’s Afternoon Edition radio program, and first read at one of their Christmas open houses (a different …

Here’s a great video about the best genre literary convention in North America and probably the world: Calgary’s When Words Collide.

Just saw this today! It was shot back in January when I was in New York to visit the DAW offices…

Me, singing “Me”

While setting up my video last week for the virtual classroom visits-by-authors I was part of, I had the urge to give my microphone a good test by singing. So I recorded one of my party pieces, “Me” from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The result pleased me enough I decided to YouTube it…and here …
