In Vancouver For The Winter

Did a ton of travelling in 2018 and now it’s time to hunker down and focus on writing Our Lady of Blades (the new swashbuckling book in the world of the Greatcoats) and Crownbreaker (the final book in the Spellslinger series.)

Vancouver is remarkably warm this season, with temperatures often hitting 10 degrees Celcius (or 50 Fahrenheit) which is rather warm for the dead of winter.

Some interesting facts about Vancouver:

  • The Lions Gate Bridge (a beautiful bridge once used for the Tom Selleck movie “Runaway” which featured homicidal mechanical spiders running across it) was originally built by the Guinness Beer Company.
  • We have the second largest port in North America, second only to New York. Suck it, Los Angeles.
  • We have 5 – count ‘em – 5 sister cities, namely: Odessa (Ukraine), Yokohama (Japan), Edinburgh (Scotland), Guangzhou (China), and Los Angeles (United States). Uh . . . sorry about what I said before, Los Angeles.

Oh, and we invented Ryan Reynolds. You’re welcome.
