I write into the void. Sometimes the void wins. Other times the words win.

Over the years, my work has appeared in print and online in such places as Adbusters, Geist, Shotgun Honey, 365 Tomorrows, Pulp Literature, Switchblade and the clown noir anthology, Greasepaint & 45s. I’ve also won the Mash Stories flash fiction contest and twice made it to the semi-finals of the Broken Pencil Indie Writers Deathmatch.

In 2018, Dead Clown Blues, the first book in my Carnegie Fitch Mystery Fiasco series from Shotgun Honey/Down & Out Books was nominated for an Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Novella by the Crime Writers of Canada. The follow up, 40 Nickels, was published in August 2019. Shot to Nothing, 3rd in series, is scheduled for release in Summer 2021.

Previously a longtime Vancouver resident, I currently live in Toronto with my spouse and daughter.

The battle with the void continues daily.
