Welcome! I’m glad you stopped in. I’m Lois Donovan, former teacher turned author, and this is the place where I share my ideas and insights related to the world of writing, along with the latest news and updates on my Personal Legend. Always somewhat of a rollercoaster ride, but I love it!

My passion is to share what I have learned along the way, in the hopes that you will find something helpful for your journey. There are a lot of distractions these days and following through on your goals, can be harder than ever. My blog is all about writing in the spaces between the distractions and all the other demands in your life. You don’t have to give up on your dream, but getting there might look a little different from what you expected.

The virtual world. Meeting young readers and writers without leaving home. Missing the face-to-face experience, but still happy to connect!

A Brief Bio

Lois is the author of two historical novels, Winds of L’Acadie, and The Journal, both published by Ronsdale Press. Her current project is a teen contemporary novel with working title This Girl, That Song, One Summer. It has recently been released into the wild, to find a home. Her new work is repped by Stacey Kondla.

From book clubs, to classrooms or conventions, Lois enjoys meeting readers of all ages and sharing her love of history and her passion for stories. She has presented at many teachers conventions and young writers’ conferences as well as visiting schools in Nova Scotia, Ontario and Alberta.

When Lois is not writing, or talking (and blogging) about writing, she enjoys curling up with a good book or going on nature walks with her Shelties.
