The lovely and talented Jackie Irvine published a great Q&A today with Ottawa’s R.M. Doyon – author of the new book Upcountry.
The Q&A kicks off…
What kind of a reader are you?
I’m the type of reader who has to have a good book going at all times. If it’s non-fiction, I could have up to three books on the go at any time, since it’s easier to return to non-fiction after a month or so and pick up exactly where you’ve left off. Over the past couple of years, I have been primarily interested in finding a good novel that I can enjoy as a reader, and to learn from. I often have a pen by my side to mark up my books as I read, especially if I discover a particularly well-written phrase or passage. I admire great writing.
