My debut novel is an action-adventure love story that races across the country and back again.

Quill & Quire

An innovative approach to a timeless subject.

Vancouver Sun

A powerful debut, audacious for what it attempts, impressive for how well it succeeds.

The Georgia Straight

Equal parts suspense and adventure.

National Post

A stunning mosaic.



One of my new stories was accepted and will be released in early 2021! Stay tuned!

I'm taking a break from journalism through 2021 to work on books.

New Works

Watch for news about my latest novel soon! I'm now working on an exciting story collaboration.


I'm the author of the novel Circle of Stones (Dundurn Press, 2015) and a novel-in-progress. I've performed my work at literary readings and festivals across Canada. My short stories, articles and essays have appeared in The Walrus, Hazlitt, Joyland, Quill & Quire, NOW Magazine, Canadian Art, Canada's Walk of Fame Commemorative Magazine and elsewhere. I'm a contributing editor for beloved literary magazine Taddle Creek and I've written for and produced award-winning digital TV and film co-productions and narrative games. I also teach writing classes and workshops and am available for panels and talks. 


I grew up on Vancouver Island and studied journalism and literature in Ottawa. Then I lived in Toronto where I worked, wrote, played bass in fun indie bands and traveled often to Montreal and New York City. After years of exploring I returned home to the west coast at the end of 2018. I now live and write in Vancouver with a view of the North mountains.
