I'm so pleased Andrew has followed in his grandfather (Marshal Mcluhan) and fathers (Eric Mcluhan) footsteps. I've been auditing Andrew's online class over the last year. He has a way of bringing Understanding Media to life! If there're any Mcluhan geeks out there I encourage you to find out more.

I've been studying Mcluhan for over forty years and it's a gift that keeps on giving.

A chat with Margaret Atwood and Ken...


Hope you can drop in on our conversation. We're going to geek out about McLuhan, one of my biggest influences. I'm thrilled to have Margaret on board!!!

 One of the most enjoyable things I did this year during the pandemic was to take a 12 week virtual class with Andrew McLuhan. Above is a certificate from Grey Area who is based in San Francisco, they're an online virtual classroom. I hope you'll check out their site. Andrew McLuhan will be giving a second and third class on Marshall McLuhan's Understanding Media book, starting sometime in March. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the effects of technology on our culture.

Because Vancouver Comic Arts Festival was canceled due to CVID, Deni Loubert interviewed me virtually!

I WON!!! Thank you so much for everyone who voted.
I'm so honoured by this award, and first I'd like to thank Conundrum publisher Andy Brown for his belief in a late-bloomer boomer like me.

My thanks also to my husband Ken for his patience, his confidence that I would eventually like comics and for his expertise in helping me make my own, and to my mentor Eric McLuhan, for giving me the courage to continue my educational Odyssey.

And finally to everyone who listened to my quiet voice and helped it grow into a roar, I'm truly grateful for your support.

In some ways I like the portability of working small. 
It's easy to fit into my pocket and take to a coffee shop.
