Biography



I’ve been publishing in literary journals since I was 17. A collection of my short fiction titled The Girl with the Full Figure Is Your Daughter was published by Turnstone Press in September 2002. One of my stories, originally published in Queen’s Quarterly, was chosen for the 2008 Journey Prize Stories 20. Both The Malahat Review and Prairie Fire have nominated my work for a National Magazine Award. The Antigonish Review submitted one of my stories to the 2013 Journey Prize Stories anthology.

In 2000 I participated in the St. Roch Voyage of Rediscovery through the Northwest Passage. The next year I started working on coastal tugboats. Although currently living in Burnaby, I have lived in Winnipeg, Victoria, Ottawa, Kenya and New Zealand.
