My intro to the American writers' market

My first blog post of 2016 is to share with you great news: my first article in an American magazine has been published!

The article was a lot of fun (and a lot of work) to write—it's about the Plain of Six Glaciers Teahouse, located in the mountains by beautiful Lake Louise in Alberta. You can find the story in the December 2015 issue of Fresh Cup Magazine, a publication about specialty coffee and tea.

Researching the story meant I had to hike the trail to the teahouse, something I was proud of myself for doing, since I have never hiked in high altitudes before, and I found myself short of breath on the trail. But turning the corner and seeing the teahouse made the journey worth every step—not to mention getting that first sip of hot chai tea.

I invite you to read the article about the experience here: Plain of Six Glaciers Teahouse.

Thanks to everyone who helped along the way to make this article a success, especially Susanne Gillies-Smith, owner of the teahouse.

This story will have a special place in my heart forever, since it's the first article I've had published in an American market. I'm happy and thankful—two great things to be at the start of a New Year.

Wishing you all the best in 2016!
