So, I got the chance to fantasy-produce a movie adaptation of With My Back to the World.
(Jane Campion won’t mind shooting in Canada and New Mexico, right?)
Would you see this movie? I know I’d love to see Frances McDormand play Agnes Martin.
(With thanks to All Lit Up for featuring With My Back to the World in the Character Study column.) Read More

What a week! Two packed-to-the gills events in Toronto and Hamilton and With My Back to the World is well and truly launched. It was a thrill to hold and read from the novel for the first time and with such a strong, exciting group of women writers. The love in the room was real! I’m filled with gratitude for family and friends and writer peeps who came out and for Noelle Allen and all at Wolsak & Wynn for making this novel a reality. . #tooexcitedtotakepictures Read More
une in to The Bay 88.7 fm Sat. May 18 at 8 a.m. to hear my interview with Christine Cowley on Storylines. Here’s what she has to say:
While we’re waiting for spring to roll into summer (remember that concept?) here’s a bit of soul nutrition. Author Sally Cooper’s latest novel. *With My Back to the World*, is a delicately layered, sustaining bit of soulfood—the perfect accompaniment to a spring tonic. Join us for Storylines this Saturday, May 18 at 8 am as we dig into the craft—which Sally brings so deftly to the page—of telling the stories of three women, generations apart, linked by invisible threads of personal history.
Storylines airs Saturday mornings around 8 a.m., or for you night owls, a second airing on Wednesday nights at 11 p.m. Tune in just ahead of the hour—our new magazine format sometimes jumps us ahead. If you miss those time slots, you can catch the podcast afterwards at https://muskokaradio.com.
I’m your host for Storylines, chatting with authors and book folks about books and the writing life. For those outside our listening area, you can pick up the show on-line or better yet, listen on your phone with the HBR app—use this link http://bit.ly/2djThj4 (or go to www.HuntersBayRadio.com to download).
