Fiddler’s Moon

I’m in the banquet room at the Rodd, sitting off by myself, alone, because I can’t trust my emotion not to give way in front of the others. Matilda Murdoch is playing the fiddle. I’m transported back in time to 1600’s Ireland. I’m moved to tears. I may […]

Kellie Underhill’s editing skills are precise, skilled, and reliable. Along with her impressive writing skills, she was and continues to be, instrumental in the success of Words on Water, Miramichi, a reading and workshop group dedicated to promoting the books and works of local and national writers.
