Menopause, the lighter side.

On CBC Cross Talk, myself and host, Ramona Dearing are talking about a subject that can be taboo for some people. And that is menopause.

 

It can be a difficult time, no question.

 

But in this show we're hoping to poke some fun at the indignities that can come with menopause.

 

Writer Helen Escott is standing by to share some stories.

Reading With Cats by Helen C. Escott - Operation Wormwood

What if there was a disease that only killed pedophiles? Operation Wormwood (Flanker Press) is an investigation into this dark world and why evil against the most vulnerable goes unpunished by a loving, all powerful God. Operation Wormwood, a finalist in the 2019 Arthur Ellis Awards for Best First Crime Novel, is not a crime novel with the usual suspects.

Helen C. Escott reads from Operation Vanished

In the 1950s, three young women were murdered.

 

Their killer never caught. Operation Vanished is a mind-bending sophisticated psychological crime thriller that will keep you guessing who the real killer is. Helen C. Escott weaves mythology and history into a novel that is anything but predictable.

 

When you least expect it, a ghost from the past returns.
